You may not have heard of Sir Hossein Yassaie, but you have used his technology.
Ever listened to a DAB radio? That tech’s his. Digital TV? His too. iPhone, iPad, a massive chunk of the world’s other smartphones or Intel Atom-powered computers? Yep, all his.
Imagination Technologies’ graphics, digital broadcast and communications tech is in tens of billions of products worldwide. Its consumer brand, Pure, made digital radio a big deal. And Sir Hossmeister isn’t stopping there.
Imagination’s Caskeid tech is the first platform to offer a viable alternative to Sonos’ multiroom streaming – indeed, it even supports the nascent super-hi-res MQA music compression mechanism – and its just introduced its first branded product in over a decade, the Creator Board CI-20 (a Raspberry Pi on steroids).
Stuff’s Will Dunn (@willydunn) chatted to Sir Hossein Yassaie about all of the above and much more at CES 2015. Check out the video below.
