Performance, capacity and bandwidth increase exponentially: nearly
every year the power of information technologies doubles. To keep up
with this rapid growth, the innovation rate of new products and services
requires a new speed to market.
digicast specializes in overcoming technical obstacles
to develop simple, attractive products for the mass market.
We know the aesthetics of technology.
When are technologies disruptive? Should the user really be at the center of design? How do new technologies change peoples’ lives? What makes for good hardware? Where do we go from here?
We’d love to help you expand your thoughts with our expert know how. Book us for workshops or lectures:
Broadband media continues to revolutionize the businesses of content owners; service, and technology providers; as well as the way that consumers interact with telecommunications and entertainment products. “Simply put, it’s a game changer.”
Participating in this new media revolution requires an understanding of business, technology, and user experience. Jerome believes “all business decisions, right down to product features, need to be looked at from each of these three angles. For example, the interface and performance of embedded hardware are key for customer satisfaction. And all apps and associated revenue models are meaningless if the Internet connection is too difficult for the customer to set up or maintain.”
As an innovator, inventor, ideator, Jerome knows that the rapid pace of technology changes the way the industry works: „the market is moving too fast to take a screen shot of what customers want. Technological advancements move a lot faster than the expected product lifetime. A piece of hardware will be replaced because of its nonexistent functions, not because it’s broken.”
Jerome’s work draws on his broad understanding of current technological possibilities and his close connections to international industry players. His projects take him beyond the marketing hype into the real and the realizable. With digicast Jerome finds the solutions that bring business leaders and innovative technologies together.
Jerome earned his bachelor’s of science in Computer Systems Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, N.Y.. After working in various management positions in Boston, New York, and Berlin, he co-founded digicast in 2005.
Kirsten believes: “technologies have consequences for communications: media impacts the message. In turn, communications have consequences for society: the message impacts people. Recognizing the impact of technology on society is fundamental in developing state of the art communications for the mass market.”
With her company digicast Kirsten focuses on the emotional connection between people and technology—not just on the functional benefits. She believes in the transformative power of simple, practical technologies in consumer’s everyday lives.
Kirsten’s experience in the telecommunications industry has given her a keen understanding of engineers,’ designers,’ and business managers’ needs. She tackles communication problems: “for projects to go smoothly, tech-speak, aesthetic-speak and business-speak need to be mutually understandable. Some translation is required– third party mediation keeps teams on track.”
Kirsten’s success draws upon her strong education and broad practical experiences. Her understanding of good design and functionality matured during her time at the Darmstadt University of Applied Science, where she earned her degree as a Diplom-Designer with a concentration in visual communications in 1996. Her NLP-Master Practitioner Certification further developed her understanding of effective communication. In 2002 she earned her MBA with a concentration in media management through the Steinbeis School of Management’s international program.
Kirsten entered the multimedia and telecommunications industry in 1994. In 2005 she co-founded digicast. With digicast she develops effective communications solutions for leading players in the broadband market.
digicast is a growth-oriented company. We are always looking for new colleagues who can bring creativity, technical know-how, and a keen understanding of the meaning of technology in everyday life, to our company. We are looking for ambitious, innovative and resourceful thinkers to join our team.
If you are interested in getting to know digicast, in addition to forwarding us your CV, please tell us about your perspective on the broadband entertainment industry.
We look forward to hearing from you!
