The Content Delivery & Storage Association (CDSA) announced that it has named the Media & Entertainment Services Alliance (MESA) as its association management company of record.
According to the statement, MESA’s first responsibility will be to manage the continued rollout of CDSA’s newly updated and expanded international Content Protection Certification Program next year.
Martin Porter, MESA Executive Director, will also serve as Executive Director of CDSA as the successor to Charles Van Horn, CDSA President, who is retiring after 26 years with the organization. Under this new structure, MESA will provide organizational management for CDSA, while CDSA will continue to maintain its independent activities under the direction of its own Board of Directors.
Linda Dyson will remain in the position of worldwide director of CDSA’s global standards and certification processes for the Content Protection and Security Standards, and the Copyright and Licensing Verification Standards and Procedures.
