Video to mobile specialist Yospace today announced that it has appointed digital visionary Peter Cowley to its board as a non-executive director. The appointment follows a year of unprecedented growth in customer adoption of yospaceCDS – the company’s unique video delivery platform, further underpinning Yospace’s domain expertise in the fast moving video to mobile space.
“Peter’s understanding of the digital market place and enthusiasm for Yospace’s offering makes this appointment a real driver for us all.

Yospace eliminates the video to mobile barrier.” commented Tim Sewell, CEO, Yospace.
Peter Cowley added, “Yospace is uniquely positioned to solve a fundamental problem which is at the intersection where video meets mobile. As powerful mobile connected devices proliferate and consumer demand for video content accelerates, managing the delivery of this content will become a key success factor in who are the winners and losers in the space.”
