THX Names Scott Francis CTO

THX, which was recently acquired by gaming manufacturer Razer, announced it has hired Scott Francis as its chief technology officer.

Francis will be tasked with all technology-related resources, workflow and staff in areas of engineering, said THX, and will find ways to feed the technological information into the certification and optimization programs. This is a new position.

He previously served as chief technology officer of entertainment services and senior VP of Technicolor Licensing, and went on to found AgencyIP, a patent technology broker agency.

“I could not be more excited to join THX during this exciting period of growth and development, when new technologies such as VR are rapidly becoming a part of our cultural norm,” said Francis. “VR is where film was in 1915 — it’s the early days, and I’m thrilled to be a part of an innovative, risk-taking team at the cutting edge of exploring this new frontier.”
