The digital media distribution house says the appointment is "crucial" in
gearing up for its online music strategy
Mike Skeet, a founding partner of the Royalty Compliance Organisation
has been appointed as CFO and Copyright Director at Pixago, the digital
media management and distribution company. A world-leading expert in
management, licensing and accountancy for the music and entertainment
industry, Mike will be responsible for directing the company's digital
rights management strategy.
"Online distribution of audio and video content will not happen until
owners interests are protected", says Richard Bennett, CEO. "Our strategy
is to take best current practice and apply it to the online world".
Mike's specialist practice, RCO, has grown to become one of the most
respected worldwide. Clients range from major entertainment companies
as Time Warner, Universal, Paramount and Channel Four to some of the
best-known artists including the Spice Girls, Queen and Bruce Springsteen.
Fascinated with the complexities of royalty and copyright management, Mike
set up a practice tending to his specialist areas with accountants Moores
Rowland in early 1999.
Mike Skeet said: "Solving the problem of online digital rights management
will redefine this industry. It will be thrilling to achieve this."
Pixago is a digital archive and media distribution house aiming to help
companies realise the potential for using digital media and making the
of media assets they already possess. Simply put, Pixago creates digital
media archives from companies existing audio and video assets. The
of these archives can be streamed from Pixago's industrial-strength
across any current or future platform, such as broadband Internet, third
generation (3G) mobile networks and interactive television.
Pixago has structured its service to be as inclusive as possible, enabling
companies and organisations of every size to take advantage of the medium.
The nature of its service also makes it very easy for companies to control
the distribution and the tracking of their digital media, whether as an
internal resource available over the Internet or a new revenue stream.
For many companies, the cost and complexity involved in digitising,
and managing media assets are major barriers to streaming digital media on
their websites and extranet systems. Pixago's service side-steps these
infrastructure issues by hosting the digital content on its media servers,
allowing media clips to be streamed directly to the end-user's system.
