Adam Kunzman, President
Adam Kunzman started Keynote Photonics in 2009. Previous posts include General Manager of Texas Instruments DLP HDTV business and General Manager of DLP Japan. Holds 18 patents and author of several papers.
Adam received his B.S. in Electronic and Computer Engineering from Iowa State University and received a M.S. in Computer Science Engineering at UT Arlington. He joined Texas Instruments as a summer intern and returned to TI upon completion of his B.S. After five years in various roles at TI’s defense unit, he joined the Corporate Ventures project, which housed the emerging technology that was to become DLP.
He joined the group of engineers and scientists who developed the core methods and approaches to use DLP as a display solution for projectors and televisions. He became the point man to work with consumer electronics companies in Japan to adopt DLP, which led to the initial introduction of DLP based televisions in 2000. During this time he was awarded 13 patents. Expanding beyond his technical role, he initiated a business thrust for home theater products, leading to the introduction of high-definition DLP home theater projectors. Adam was promoted to general manager of DLP business in Japan where he led efforts to expand DLP business with Japan’s projector and television manufacturers and grew the business by 50% during his three years there. Adam returned to the US to lead the DLP television business where it became the dominant technology for large screen sizes and was the first technology to become 3D ready.
After leaving Texas Instruments in 2009, Adam started Keynote with the idea that DLP technology could be utilized in many new fields beyond display. He is the proud father of four children and has an amazing partner in his wife Amanda. When the time allows, you can find him sneaking in a round of golf or skiing in the moutains.
