Aaron Evans.
Founder & Principal Consultant
Digital Revolution

Aaron’s 15 years of experience at the leading edge of new and emerging media and entertainment technologies has developed his ability to evaluate marketplace trends and create strategic business solutions that leverage creative architectures. He has been integral in architecting, building, and refining the technology backbone that many video over IP providers, CDNs, streaming services, and retailers are using today.

Today Aaron is helping define new technology architecture and business strategies surrounding UltraVioletTM, the “buy-once, play anywhere” cloud-based digital rights locker for video, after contributing to the specifications during his time at Neustar.

Aaron’s passion for business models, strategies, and experiences where the consumer is the priority has enabled him to keep clearly focused on providing the best technology solutions while pushing the boundaries of new business models.
