Mindpix Corporation Announces New CEO, Victor Siegel

LAS VEGAS, April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindpix Corporation (OTC Pink: MPIX)

MPIX today announced that Mr. Victor Siegel has joined the Company as President and Chief Executive Officer.  Rick Garson will continue as Chairman of the Board. The Company thanks Mr. Garson for his additional service during the transition time and for his continued leadership in moving MPIX to the next level of development.

Mr. Siegel is a growth-oriented international CEO who has led digital media, mobile, and technology companies in US, EU, Latin America and the Asia/Pacific region.  He brings 25 years as a successful global business development leader, strategist, team-builder and turn-around executive to his role at Mindpix.

Mr. Siegel's accomplishments include launching some of the first mobile video and music applications in the United States, creating and successfully deploying Impulse, the industry's first Adobe and Flash-based overlay application that seamlessly integrates with broadcast and cable channels worldwide.

Mr. Siegel led the team that successfully launched American Idol's first PSMS text program with Fox. As CEO of VerveLife, he created major branded music programs for Fortune 500 companies such as MillerCoors and PepsiCo and consummated an acquisition of a leading music technology company. Mr. Siegel managed the multi-office post acquisition and integration and closed catalogue-wide licensing deals with Universal Music Group, EMI, Sony, Warner Music Group and publishers, SonyATV and Warner Chappel.

Earlier, in his career, Mr. Siegel held senior business development, operating and M&A roles at Universal Television Latin America, Wunderman Latin America and Lagardere Active North America. Mr. Siegel's expertise in advertising, strategic planning, music licensing and electronic media distribution in web, broadband, wireless, cable TV, broadcast TV and iTV platforms will bring a breadth of opportunities to the Company.  

"My focus will be the development and monetization of MPIX's three core intellectual property and content hubs," said Siegel. "They are: 1) proprietary intellectual property like our music catalogue; 2) developing content, specifically global television and streaming events and 3) licensing and helping others monetize their content using our proprietary resources and distribution platforms.  I am truly excited to work with our management team and Board to leverage our excellent existing assets and to create immediate revenue, plus long term growth for our shareholders."

"Victor brings to Mindpix a proven track record in developing strategic plans and a laser-like focus on creating revenue," said Rick Garson, Chairman of the Board of Mindpix. "Victor's experience in television, music and digital technology is a perfect match for Mindpix.  I could not be happier for Mindpix and our shareholders to welcome this major addition to our growing team.  It will accelerate our efforts to build MPIX into a significant global media company."

While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
