In recent years, Namer has become recognized as one of the world's leading experts on new technology and how it is fundamentally altering the business of international media and entertainment. Among the companies that have enlisted his expertise are Microsoft, Paul Allen's Digeo, World Digital Media Group (a joint venture of Radio Shack), EchoStar and Sirius Radio network. Additionally, he serves as Senior Advisor, Strategic Development to eurocinema On Demand, the only 24/7 on demand foreign film channel now available in 36 million homes via cable and satellite in North America.
An accomplished entrepreneur, Namer is a founding partner of Metan Development Group (Metan), a venture created to develop entertainment and media specifically for the Chinese marketplace.
Metan's most notable project to date is Hello! Hollywood, a weekly entertainment news series tailored to Mandarin-speaking audiences, offering up the latest in celebrity and lifestyle news, and covering the most glamorous red carpet events and award shows. Launched in summer 2009, the series now reaches half a billion viewers over 40 TV stations in China and nine channels in the US, as well as over one million online users weekly.
In February, 2011 Metan teamed up with Tencent, owner of China's largest Internet service portal QQ.com, to create special entertainment news coverage direct from Hollywood surrounding The 83rd Annual Academy Awards.
