Eric Rosenthal


Mr. Rosenthal is President of Creative Technology, LLC (CTech), a company specializing in new and advanced imaging technology consulting and development. CTech is currently working in collaboration with UPENN on a DARPA funded project to prototype a full-spectrum imaging sensor and display.   R & D on imaging technology leading to this current project has been sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), NSA, Naval Research Lab (NRL) and NASA. The full-spectrum imaging system is based on a novel Wave Theory of Human Vision Mr. Rosenthal co-developed with Richard Solomon of CTech. Three patents have been awarded on the sensor, spectrometer and display technology.  Several additional patents are pending.

Mr. Rosenthal was Vice President Research and Development at Walt Disney Imagineering where he developed new technologies and business strategies for Disney's theme parks, television, motion pictures, Internet and consumer products businesses.

In 1999, Mr. Rosenthal successfully completed the construction of Disney/ABC's Times Square Studios at 1500 Broadway. His innovative design of the glass and camera systems is in daily use on ABC's Good Morning America and other Disney/ABC Television programs.

Prior to joining WDI in 1992, Mr. Rosenthal worked as a technical consultant and project manager for WDI, Associates and Ferren, NIKE, and SONY. He performed the facilities design, engineering and project management for television audio-video serial digital D2 production systems at Imevision in Mexico City; and the design and fabrication of audio-video and computer systems for the Bill of Rights 200th Anniversary USA Tour.

Mr. Rosenthal became known for his audio and video systems engineering accomplishments during his 26-year tenure with ABC Television in New York. As general manager of A/V systems engineering at the ABC TV network, he revamped and updated many of the ABC broadcast centers and studios across the United States. He supervised the design, engineering and installation of new facilities, providing them with state-of-the-art, computerized lighting, rigging, audio-video, routing switchers and distribution systems. He was also the project manager for the design and construction of KGO-TV in San Francisco from 1981 to 1985.

Mr. Rosenthal received an Emmy award for his work as technical project manager for the audio-video systems engineering of ABC's coverage of the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York.

Mr. Rosenthal was Scientist in Residence and adjunct professor at New York University (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts Interactive Telecommunications Program.

Mr. Rosenthal has been awarded 11 patents:
