Microsoft has hired Jen Topping to be the business manager of its UK studio Soho Productions, looking to create on-demand video content for the upcoming Xbox One console. Jen Topping formerly worked as a broadcaster on the UK-based Channel 4.
So why did Microsoft pick her? Topping has video on demand experience from her work at Channel 4 and she worked closely in developing the 4oD platform. Microsoft will utilize her expertise for the Xbox platform.
“I’ve had a great time at Channel 4 working across lots of different projects, and have learned a huge amount about how technology is changing the way audiences watch and engage with TV programmes. This is such an exciting time to be joining Microsoft with the launch of Xbox One as the new generation all-in-one home entertainment system. I’m looking forward to being part of the team building amazing TV content experiences for Xbox’s millions of users,” Topping stated.
So there you have it, lets see what kind of content Topping will come up with for the new Xbox One console. The new console is due in November of this year.Further reading: Microsoft, Xbox
