Data management company DCIMPro360 has named post-production veteran Patrick Howley to be its director of technology. Howley has more than 40 years of experience as an engineer, consultant, sales director, project manager, and owner/operator of a large digital production and post-production center.
Howley got his start working on the Apollo 11, 12, and 13 lunar landing missions. He served as director of engineering and general manager at several post-production houses before founding Post Perfect in New York.
Howley was vice president of sales for Key Code Media, director of worldwide sales for MTI Film, and president of the Americas for Nucoda/Digital Vision. He has been a member of several Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers committees, served as a board member for the International Teleproduction Society, was chairman of the ITS Engineering Committee and served on the Technical Advisory Board of the Institute of Audio Research. He is currently a board member of the Hollywood Professional Association sales and marketing group in Hollywood.
“With the addition of Patrick, we are looking at expanding our reach into post production and other media and entertainment entities. Big data and video and audio over IP are radically changing the business and DCIMPro’s expertise in large data center management scales well for the machine rooms of the future,” said Chris James, founder and CEO of Tenzing and DCIMPro.
