Meet the Team:
Fred Lochner – Founder and President of Imperial Multimedia
Inspiration for the founding of Imperial Multimedia came from an experience shortly after graduation from the University of Wisconsin. While listening to a principal of Nippon Electronics (Sony) talk about the future of newly emerging digital technologies, Fred imagined what impact some day these technologies could have in communications. During the early to mid 1990’s, while working for a fortune 500 Food Service distributor (Sysco) as a Senior Marketing Associate, Fred identified a need and the potential solution. In April 1998 he founded Imperial Multimedia, LLC to develop the emerging digital technologies for use in interpretive and promotional presentation. Since its beginning Imperial Multimedia has developed interactive multimedia programs utilizing 3d animation, full frame video and audio which is the fastest, most robust and reliable in the industry today.
The resulting organization has since focused its work on developing integrated wayfinding, communications and interpretive solutions in a wide array of environments that respond to diverse audience expectations while consistently enhancing the guest experience.
