Adam Lesh, Testronic Labs
Presentation delivered at the 2nd Blu-ray Disc Academy 3D conference, Hamburg, 3-4 May 2011.
Adam Lesh is Chief Technical Officer of Testronic Labs. Adam began his professional career as a consultant for Andersen Consulting and continued in that field after obtaining his MBA from the Anderson Graduate School of Management at UCLA. He soon joined the Technical Operations Division of Warner Bros, where he was tapped to work with the Home Video division to pioneer content preparation for the new DVD format.
He successfully steered the fledgling facility (GDMX) through hardware and software alpha and beta testing, hiring of personnel for the new jobs of MPEG-2 compression, DVD authoring and QC, and establishing processes and procedures for asset management and preparation for DVD production.
In 1997, Adam opened one of the first independent DVD authoring facilities in the world, Advanced Media Post. With clients such as Lionsgate Entertainment, he expanded AMP to become a full service boutique post-production facility. In 2008, Adam sold AMP and joined Testronic Laboratories in the newly established position of Chief Technical Officer, North America.
Since joining the TL team, Adam has been involved with process improvement for both DVD and Blu-ray QC, developing comprehensive test plans and procedures for BD-Live, Digital Copy, and, most recently, 3D, for a variety of studio clients.
