Pablo Calamera Appointed CTO and Executive VP, IMAX Corporation

IMAX Corporation announced Pablo Calamera as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Executive Vice President, IMAX Corporation. Calamera joins IMAX from video platform JW Player, where he served as CTO. He will report directly to Rich Gelfond, CEO of IMAX Corporation, and be based in New York. Calamera succeeds IMAX CTO Brian Bonnick, who will retire after a transformative twenty-year tenure in which he built and championed technologies that powered the Company’s rise in global entertainment.

“Over the course of his 30-year career, Pablo has cultivated deep expertise in helping global brands leverage technology to develop innovative products and platforms, expand their reach, and connect with consumers in powerful ways,” said Gelfond. “Building on our record-breaking year, Pablo will spearhead the development of solutions that further evolve and strengthen our global theatre network and extend our leadership in delivering the most immersive entertainment experiences in the world.”

“Brian Bonnick has been a driving force behind the technology that lifted IMAX beyond museums and into multiplexes around the world, establishing the Company as a global entertainment powerhouse,” continued Gelfond. “His efforts were responsible for the digital transformation of the Company in the early 2000s that changed IMAX’s entire business proposition and, most recently, the Company’s ground-breaking expansion into laser technology. I want to thank him for his years of friendship and service, as we build on his work and grow our legacy of pioneering innovation in entertainment technology.”

In his role, Calamera will drive the Company’s technology strategy, overseeing the development and implementation of products that further evolve its theatre network and extend The IMAX Experience to new platforms. Prior to his role at JW Player, Calamera served as CTO at Vonage where he oversaw technology strategy, product development and R&D. Earlier, Calamera was CTO of ClearChannel, where he was responsible for iHeartRadio’s technology initiatives. He took on the role after serving as CTO of Thumbplay, a cloud-based music company that was acquired by Clear Channel in 2011. Calamera has also held senior positions at Apple, Microsoft, WebTV, Danger and AT&T Labs.
