Harris Appoints Industry Veteran to Videotek Team

Rudolph (Rudy) Niznansky has joined Harris Corp. as manager of file-based test and measurement products for its Videotek product line. Niznansky will be responsible for current and future development of quality measurement systems designed for the growing number of server-based environments.

Niznansky brings to Harris nearly 30 years of broadcast industry experience, with more than 15 years specifically focused in the area of test and measurement. His previous experience includes directing North American sales for U.K.-based Vqual (later bought by Tektronix). Prior to joining Vqual, Niznansky worked with Rohde & Schwarz, where he directed plans for digital television test and measurement products. He also spent more than 10 years with Tektronix, where he provided technical support and product development guidance.

"We're fortunate to be able to add someone with Rudy's level of expertise to our team," said Tim Thorsteinson, president-elect of the Harris Broadcast Communications Division. "His many years in operations, engineering and sales for major manufacturers and service providers in our industry are invaluable."
