Thoughts From Xperi's Leaders:
- Jon Kirchner, chief executive office at Xperi: “The year ahead is certain to have challenges as we face economic volatility and inevitable industry consolidations. At Xperi, we are working actively to help our partners address these challenges and progress their businesses. By leveraging an independent media platform, we will enable open environments that integrate devices, services and content while placing consumers in control of their digital destiny. Properly implemented, it can lead to more choices and reduced costs for consumers while creating new opportunities for the overall industry – even in a stressed economic environment.”
- Geir Skaaden, chief products and services officer at Xperi: “With consumers facing more content choices than ever, there is a need to manage the growing complexity of digital experiences, helping them get beyond the walled gardens raised by major tech companies. TiVo OS provides a user-centric, content-first foundation that is neutral and returns control to the consumer. That can lead to opportunities for OEMs too, as consumers spend more time engaging with content and less time searching for it.”
- Jeff Jury, senior vice president and general manager, connected car at Xperi: “We are excited by the market reaction to our immersive entertainment and in-cabin sensing solutions. Car industry interest in HD Radio, DTS AutoStage and DTS AutoSense technologies highlight the growing need in the market for advanced automotive media platforms and safety solutions that work together. We are leading the effort to create a new consumer experience in the cockpit of the car of the future.”
- Walt Horstman, senior vice president, monetization at Xperi: “As audiences migrate to streaming and continue to fragment, marketers must focus on multiple objectives with their advertising strategies: maximize reach across linear TV and Connected TV (CTV), drive efficiency of their investments through audience targeting and deliver effective messaging that is accurately measured. We are excited to extend our programmatic ad stack and partnerships to monetize CTV inventory through TiVo OS. Over the past years, we have optimized our stack to maximize the yield on CTV with the introduction of new programmatic capabilities and strategic integration with our best-in-class partners.”
- Bill Neighbors, chief content officer at Xperi: “Continued expansion of DTS:X sound to home entertainment marks another exciting opportunity for consumers who want the highest quality experience in their homes and on the go. The expansion of Sony Pictures content, LG products and Disney+ support are significant milestones for Xperi and the advancement of our DTS:X sound ecosystem. More consumers will now have access to clear, rich and dynamic audio on their favorite content.”
- Dannie Lau, general manager, DTS Play-Fi at Xperi: “DTS Play-Fi technology is unmatched and continues to prove its value for customers and partners. We've achieved many milestone moments in 2022 and as demand for wireless listening experiences continue to accelerate, we expect 2023 to be a banner year for our Play-Fi technology.”
