MCV, which is backed by 12 broadcast station groups and Fox, ION Television and NBC, recently launched the Dyle consumer service that makes live broadcast TV available on mobile devices capable of receiving the signals.
In addition to his CTO role with Dyle, Mehta will remain in his current position of executive director of advanced technology at NBCUniversal. As part of his work at NBCU, he drives technology-related policy initiatives for the company and is an active participant in a number of industry standards and trade associations.
At Dyle, Mehta will oversee Dyle mobile TV's efforts for content distribution, network operations and in-market signal coverage. He will also lead product design, application development, conditional access, digital rights management and consumer device deployment of Dyle, the MCV reported in its announcement.
Mehta is already extremely familiar with the effort, having led the technical operations for Dyle since the joint venture was created in 2010. Prior to that, he was involved in the development of the ATSC-Mobile technical standard between 2006 and 2009.
"With the consumer launch of Dyle mobile TV, we are excited to name Rajan as CTO, as he has already established a track record of success in the initial development and execution of the Dyle technology," said Dalvi and Moreno in a joint statement. "Rajan's extensive experience in digital media and the broadcast space makes him an ideal member of the Dyle team to drive our current and future technology roadmap. We look forward to the leadership and continued insight he will bring to the team."
