Smart, scalable media supply
Dan Goman is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ateliere Creative Technologies, a pioneering technological force that’s transforming the post-production and OTT industries with ground-breaking innovations, from digital supply chain solutions to unique, customizable video apps.
Dan recognized early on that the company would achieve greater success by owning the streaming technology used for its content delivery system. He tasked himself and his talented team of software and tech experts to develop a solution. The result of their R&D led to the development of a patent-pending technology within a year. Dan’s vision of a full studio in the cloud has positioned the company at the vanguard of media technology, including advocacy for the Interoperable Master Format (IMF). Dan has now set his sights on market expansion, beginning with Europe and the introduction of several content technology-related initiatives.
A digital trailblazer, Dan has helped media companies such as Microsoft, Lucent Technologies and AT&T Wireless advance their technology. He is a graduate of the University of Maryland and put his technology career on the fast track with software companies in California and Texas before he landed at Lucent Technologies. His valuable experience at Lucent led him to Microsoft as a Software Developer/Network Management Specialist, where he managed Microsoft’s entire network worldwide on all their devices.
