Chris Goss
Founder and CTO ionoco, UK

Chris Goss is the founder and CTO of ionoco, a UK based company specialising in the provision of the technology behind many of today’s game shows. Over the last 25 years, Chris has built up a huge wealth of experience in the production of game shows both in England and around the world. In more recent years he was responsible for the creation of and rollout of the computer systems for Who Wants to be a Millionaire in to 40 or 50 countries, as well as shows such as The Weakest Link, Test The Nation, Deal or No Deal and 1 Versus 100. He designs both the hardware systems and the game play applications that enable the shows to work – the generation of graphics, the control of studio effects such as lighting and audio, the scoring, the question databases and so on. Every game show has different requirements and he and his company have experience second to none in finding the solutions to these requirements. As well as producing shows in England, the company specialises in packaging these formats in to a system that can be easily rolled out to a foreign country and be up and running in a week or less. This allows a format owner to distribute their format knowing that the system to make it work in studio is already in place, and it enables them to keep a better control of the look and feel of these shows.
