From showbiz to video software: introducing Milestone’s new CTO

March 01, 2023

Artificial intelligence represents rare and exciting opportunities for an industry-wide revolution in video technology. This is the vision of the new Chief Technology Officer in Milestone Systems, Rahul Yadav, who sees endless opportunities for video technology in and beyond security.

Today, Rahul Yadav joins the leading video software company Milestone from TV 2, the Danish commercial public service broadcaster, where he served as Chief Technology and Digital Officer. Bringing along an extensive experience in leading multi-site, global organizations and the transformation of digital platforms – such as the TV 2 PLAY streaming service. Rahul predicts that AI will play a critical role in Milestone’s future:

“I strongly believe that artificial intelligence is one of the key technologies that will accelerate the fourth industrial revolution,” says Rahul. “With the advancement in AI in recent years, video technology will get a big boost. For companies like Milestone, AI will enhance the capabilities of video management software solutions and offer innovative, intelligent, and efficient solutions to customers in and beyond security.”

The technology has been deployed in more than 500,000 installations and is used by a broad range of end users, from airports to hospitals to tourist attractions.

“I see an opportunity to further enhance our technology architecture, modernize our platform software and bring more customer-centricity when developing digital products and solutions. This will help everyone in our ecosystem: technology partners, distributors, integrators, and resellers. It will also empower our customers to get more from our products.”

In addition to his work at TV 2, Rahul has held senior positions at several well-known Danish brands, including consumer electronics firm Bang & Olufsen.

As he moves from the entertainment world to video software, his experience has taught him a lot about delivering good products:

“Good design and a delightful, personalized user experience are no longer nice-to-haves, they are must-haves,” says Rahul. “I see myself drawing on my previous experience to guide the Milestone Tech organization.”

When not working on transforming digital solutions, Rahul spends his time with wife Seema and their friends and family. Having lived close to nature by the West Coast of Denmark for 17 years, Rahul has developed a passion for ultra-running – up to 100 km races – as well as trail runs on beaches and in nature.
