MRMC said Kelly will bring all of this vast experience to bear at MRMC working alongside Paddy Taylor, head of broadcast at MRMC and the broadcast team.
“This industry is constantly changing because of technology advances and the clever application of that technology by engineering and design teams collaborating on research, development and approach to market,” said Kelly. “I am very excited to be joining a company at the forefront of extending technology into live broadcast and to helping my colleagues at MRMC continue to inspire and innovate new products and services.”
