Saj Jamal has returned to SSIMWAVE as Vice President, Marketing as the company is poised to advance the filmmaker-to-fan streaming experience following its acquisition by IMAX.
IMAX is trusted by top filmmakers and studios to deliver innovative and immersive experiences. Jamal will be instrumental in building on IMAX’s brand by communicating the benefits of how SSIMWAVE’s Emmy Award-winning technology will advance studio-to-device delivery of content to drive new, recurring revenue and grow IMAX’s global leadership in entertainment technology.
During an earlier stint as vice president, marketing for Communitech, a startup accelerator, Jamal supported the initial development of SSIMWAVE. He was instrumental in establishing the business value of the proprietary tech to the media and entertainment industry.
“When we needed it most, Saj Jamal made sure that SSIMWAVE was in all of the important streaming conversations,” said Dr. Abdul Rehman, CEO, CTO and Co-Founder of SSIMWAVE. “As we move forward with IMAX, Saj’s vision, expertise, and relationships will help an expanded universe of customers preserve creative intent and efficiently deliver high-quality experiences to devices.”
“IMAX with SSIMWAVE is a game-changer for filmmakers streaming to fans at home and beyond,” said Jamal. “IMAX is an innovator in entertainment technology, and for movie-goers, they have built the gold standard. The acquisition of SSIMWAVE is a testament to IMAX’s commitment to innovation for the benefit of the filmmaker and meeting fans where they are, at the theatre, and now at home.”
