Network Electronics/VPG Opens Design Center

Network Electronics and its subsidiary, Video Products Group, have announced the opening of a new design center in Chicago. The new office will initially focus on developing enhancements to the VPG Ventura product line, as well as provide engineering resources to integrate compatibility among Network Electronics and VPG technologies.

Network Electronics acquired VPG of Oxnard, Calif. in early 2008, to enhance its portfolio of video transport, routing and signal processing product lines. The Ventura line targets telco and broadcast markets with advanced products to facilitate the compression, transmission and economical transport of HD signals.

The new center will be directed by Engineering Manager Raphael Rousseau, who will report to Andrew Osmond, Network/VPG chief technology officer.
