Cable Industry Veteran Guides Alticast to Greater Success in the Growing North American Cable Market
Alticast, a global partner for the delivery of media entertainment, has promoted its CTO John Carlucci to the newly created role of President of Alticast North America. With more than two decades worth of experience in the cable industry and over 20 patents to his name, Carlucci is widely recognized as an expert in the digital television field and will continue to serve as Alticast’s CTO in addition to taking on the duties of President.
For three years Carlucci has been Alticast’s CTO, playing a key role in the development of the company’s products and solutions. A pioneer of next-generation user experiences, Carlucci’s work includes Emmy Award-winning, industry-leading designs for both Start Over/Network DVR and switched-digital video (SDV) applications.
“John was the obvious choice when we decided to create the position of President” says Alticast CEO Won Cheol Kang. “His experience, track record of success and outstanding technical expertise make him ideal to serve both as President and CTO and to drive Alticast to even greater achievements.”
Carlucci previously worked for Time Warner Cable (TWC) as the Vice President of Engineering for Polycipher, where he led the cable industry joint venture’s engineering department. Through this he developed security standards and infrastructure for next-generation video networks as well as architected “everything-on-demand video systems” for cable.
