Imagine Communications has launched a new unit to help customers and partners test proof of concepts (POCs) and validate complex workflow integrations, including interoperability.
Imagine Communications described the new unit, which is called Imagine Communications Labs, as an advanced service offering designed to provide media companies with hands-on experience working in IP and all types (public, private and hybrid) of cloud environments. The unit will reduce the time it takes to validate, integrate and deploy next-generation technology solutions.
The unit will be led by Peter Riordan, an industry veteran who recently joined Imagine Communications from Encompass Digital Media.
Riordan has made significant contributions to the media industry over the past two decades as part of technology teams at HBO, Discovery Communications and Encompass. Riordan will be responsible for implementing best practices and managing next-generation engagements, including Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) partner interoperability testing on a global basis.
