ABI Research Hires New Analysts To Tackle Interactive Media Research
The New York-based, tech-focused market research firm has appointed Cesar Bachelet as the senior analyst for Multi-Channel Video. Bachelet will cover all aspects of the global multichannel video market, from services delivered over cable, satellite and IPTV to the technologies and concepts behind the carriers' marketing strategies.
Bachelet most recently served as a consultant with Understanding & Solutions (focusing on the digital distribution of video content over broadband, cable, and satellite networks), and brings some 18 years of telecommunications industry experience to his position at ABI. "Cesar's background in the telecom industry, as well as his recent focus on consumer video, will provide valuable insight for our multichannel video vendors," said Stan Schatt, vice president and research director for ABI Research.
For research and insight into the issues of digital media management, including content protection and digital rights management (DRM), ABI has named Zippy Aima as industry analyst for Digital Media. Aima comes to ABI from Frost & Sullivan, where she served as an IT research analyst for three years, conducting in-depth analysis of digital media markets.
