XOS Technologies Adds Industry Veterans to Content Management Team

As part of XOS’ recently-announced partnership with
Collegiate Images, XOS has widened its content management team to smooth the
integration between the two partners. Jeff Stromberg has been appointed vice
president of content technology and Jason Cwik has been named director of
development for content products.
“We are committed to having the top industry talent
in the country as part of the XOS team,” says XOS Technologies chief executive officer
Randy Eccker. “We have made an important investment in content technology and
adding Jeff and Jason to our team will enhance that investment.”
Collegiate Images is a centralized licensing and
rights clearance agency that manages the distribution of archived moving and
still images for colleges, universities, conferences, bowl games, private
libraries, and broadcast rights holders. As part of the partnership, XOS
will help manage CI’s exclusive collegiate library and transfer all content to
digital format using XOS’ digital asset management technology infrastructure.
Stromberg and Cwik will lead the team focused on
completing the integration of XOS’ technology for use by Collegiate Images to
digitally archive and deliver collegiate content to the media marketplace.
In addition, Stromberg will be responsible for
overseeing the content technology elements for all XOS products, including the
coaching solutions and SportMotion studio. He will also be responsible for the
development of a content technology roadmap for the company as well as
continually evaluate opportunities for future technology innovations.
Stromberg, who most recently served as president of
Connectic, has founded and grown software companies ranging from two-person
companies to publicly traded companies with more than 500 employees. He has
extensive experience developing video storage, content management, and
distribution systems. As the founder of Ancept, one of the pioneering companies
building digital asset management systems for which he served as president from
1997 until 2003, he formed a partnership with IBM that led to the development
of digital media archives for many national and international clients,
including eBay, NFL Films, Kroger, ESPN, Sesame Workshop, Microsoft, and UPS. He
also served as vice president of Stellent, where he led a team of engineers in
building digital media functions into Stellent Content Server.
Specializing in content management and digital
media, Cwik has led several teams in the development of digital asset
management platforms. As a software development manager for Ancept and
Stellent from 1997 until 2005, Cwik designed and implemented Web-based rich
media digital asset management products built on the IBM Content
Manager. He also integrated video footage with a statistics database to produce
dynamic coaches’ footage system for NFL Films. Most recently, he designed and
implemented a new, highly flexible digital video archive and publishing system
to handle ingest, preparation, and distribution of Video On Demand and Website
video content.
“Jeff and Jason are proven talents with many years
of experience in digital content management,” says XOS chief innovation officer
Dan Aton. “They have been involved in developing and working with some of
the top platforms in the industry and will be important additions not just as
we move forward with moving Collegiate Images into digital format, but
ultimately in ensuring that our content management platform continues to
provide all of our clients and partners with new and innovative solutions.”
