Our co-founders Alex Urquhart and Maredudd ap Gwyndaf met at the BBC during the early days of the iPlayer project. They decided to put together an agency, Lounge Logic Ltd which has since created a whole bunch of apps and video players for the OTT and broadcasting industries.
The seed of the idea for Fettle was planted in 2015 whilst trying to puzzle out what sort of apps would work well on TV. The first answer was Yoga and the founders set to work alongside some of their yogi friends to build a straight up yoga app. However the idea started to grow arms and legs, Fettle morphed into the multi-discipline, white label platform it is today.
Alex started his career in Dundee as a developer for manufacturing software. He moved to London and changed to the OTT industry believing, somehow, the lifestyle would be more glamorous. He was wrong on both counts, however after stints with the BBC, ITV, SKY and DAZN, he did learn how to build video players. His favourite being the iPlayer on the Nintendo Wii. Which is still stubbornly working after 15 years.
Maredudd has been deploying his encyclopedic knowledge of streaming technology at Lounge Logic for more than a decade now. Based in Varna Bulgaria he has been leading and organising software teams, defining infrastructure and keeping us ahead of the curve. Maredudd has been tinkering a lot with AI in recent years and has now brought that experience to bear with Fettle’s AI strategy.
