SSIMWAVE has hired Dr. Kalyan Goswami and Waqas Malik to help continue development of the company's SSIMPLUS video quality of experience (QoE) system.

Goswami, who joins SSIMWAVE as solutions architect, will work across SSIMWAVE's research, product and sales teams, spearheading design of video quality assessment algorithms and ensuring alignment between product direction and customer needs. Malik joins as product strategy architect and will work to optimize the ability of SSIMWAVE's SSIMPLUS system to address customer pain points across live, VOD and cDVR delivery chains.

"Akamai's recent 'What Does Good Look Like?' white paper clearly spells out the importance SSIMWAVE plays in driving video quality, viewer satisfaction and subscriber retention," said Dr. Abdul Rehman, CEO of SSIMWAVE. "Our ongoing investment in new talent fortifies the ability of SSIMPLUS and our Subscriber Score to deliver metrics and insights that can make video better and improve our customers' bottom lines."

In his previous position with MulticoreWare, Goswami headed an engineering team whose mission was to improve the performance and quality of the company's x265 codec product. Prior to MulticoreWare, he conducted post-doctoral research in the areas of video quality assessment and video quality enhancement for the Broadcasting and Media Research Laboratory of the Electronics and Telecommunication Research Institute in South Korea. He also has served as a research consultant for the Indian Institute of Technology's (IIT Kgp) Advanced VLSI Design Laboratory.

Malik most recently was with Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.A), where he served as an OSS technical expert and as an architect of network diagnostic tools for IPTV and legacy platforms.
