DirectOut Sets Course for the Future
As co-founder of the company, Becker-Foss has worked as product manager and software developer since its beginnings in 2008. Over recent years, he has become a networked audio specialist as DirectOut has progressively adopted network-based transmission technologies such as RAVENNA, Dante and SoundGrid to its portfolio.
With DirectOut being a technology driven company, it is natural to keep the CTO function and position of CEO combined. Together with Jan Ehrlich, who has been CEO and Sales Director of DirectOut since 2014, Claudio Becker-Foss will be responsible for technical strategy, and preserving the strong reputation the company has built within the industry.
