Interview with Bruce Devlin – Chief Technical Officer at AmberFin
This week we go across the pond to England to speak with Bruce Devlin, Chief Technical Officer at AmberFin. Bruce has been working in the media industry for 25 years. In his career he has designed RF antennas, circuit boards, FPGAs, ASICs, hardware systems, video algorithms, compression algorithms, software applications, software systems and media workflows. He has worked for the BBC, Thomson, Snell & Wilcox and is currently the Chief Technical Officer of AmberFin where he leads their technology strategy and helps media organizations around the world improve their businesses by migrating to file-based working. Although a technologist at heart Bruce never forgets that profitable, successful media companies, that show great content, pay for all the technological toys he invents. Bruce is an alumni of Queens’ College Cambridge England, a member of the IABM, a fellow of SMPTE, has won many technology awards, author of many patents, co-designer of the MXF specification and has written books and standards that help to drive the professional media industry forwards.
Bruce has some interesting insights for us on why there will never be a universal consumer file format, standards and their importance and why his wife loves Bruce’s Shorts (www.amberfin.com/shorts).
