Med1a Hires Kingston

IPTV Consultancy and technology enabler, Med1a has announced the appointment of Louis Kingston as Commercial Director. Kingston, formerly of EMAP, will be responsible for raising awareness of Med1as IPTV platform, View TV, in order to help media companies and special interest groups to make money from IPTV.
Med1a was formed in January 2007 by Gary Corbett, who is also CEO of Opera Telecom, which was No. 1 in the Sunday Times list of fastest growing companies in 2004, and Jamie Branson, Managing Director of T2eUK, creator of the View TV platform. 
I have worked very closely with Gary Corbett in the past, and he has consistently been ahead of the curve in terms of delivering effective interactive technology and services for media companies globally says Kingston. Garys involvement in Med1a, combined with Jamie Bransons experience and knowledge of the IPTV market, convinced me that this was a fantastic opportunity to be involved with a company that can genuinely be the market leader in enabling content owners and media organisations to monetise their content in a cost effective manner and communicate with their audience in new ways.
Prior to joining Med1a Kingston worked with EMAP as a Business Consultant, identifying and marketing new interactive services for Emaps consumer and lifestyle brands, including the creation of a number of off portal mobile sites including FHM, Heat, Q, Kiss, Empire and Kerrang!
Prior to this, Kingston headed up the Media and Sales operations for multinational media and technology corporation, itouch. During this time, itouch was responsible for managing the interactive platforms for numerous TV shows including Pop Idol, The x-factor and Big Brother.
