We have been talking with Barry Salzman, CEO of YCD based in New York, in prep for a technical chit-chat at Screen Expo with Guy Shavitt their Head of R&D.
We like YCD’s music offering as you know but have always wanted to see them more aggressively expand outside of their comfort zone in Israel.
The deal with Imagesound was a start and a step in the right direction, although we understand that only 10% of Imagesound’s business is currently powered by YCD equipment. Getting Barry on board and having a head office in New York was obviously an even bigger step.
Barry tells us that he is planning to have a team of 5 in the UK and 19 in the US in Q1 2008.
