The eighth edition of the UBS Disruptive Technology CEO Summit demonstrated how the seamless partnership between human and technology innovates for our future. Iyuno’s Founder & CEO David Lee presented his novel insights on the new economy to global investors and business leaders during the Summit.
David Lee is the Founder and CEO of Iyuno, responsible for the strategy and integration of the leading entertainment technology and localization company with the largest global footprint. Lee founded Iyuno in 2002, using free software to create subtitles for Korean DVD companies.
With the rise of cable TV, David pivoted and developed MediaTrans, a platform to deliver automated subtitles files directly into cable broadcaster edit workflows and swiftly secured 90% of the Korean subtitling market. Lee relocated the company to Singapore in 2006 to penetrate the market across Southeast Asia. Responding to market advances, Lee reimagined MediaTrans into a cloud-based subtitling platform to store and manage content, today facilitating the creation and active management of subtitling projects on web browsers anywhere in the world. In 2019, Iyuno merged with Europe localizer BTI Studios and in 2021 acquired rival SDI Media. It is now the largest global provider of dubbing, subtitling, access and media services in over 100 languages for every type of content distribution platform.
Lee has earned many awards for his work, most recently being named the 2019 EY Entrepreneur of the Year (EOY) Singapore by professional services organization Ernst & Young.
