Quantel, based in Newbury, U.K., has named Ray Cross as its new Chief Executive Officer, replacing Richard Taylor. Both Taylor and Paul Kellar, the company’s director of R&D, have stepped down voluntarily. Brian Paisley and Martin Mulligan will continue to lead Quantel’s Broadcast and Post/DI divisions, respectively
The company said the management shift was designed as part of a broad strategic initiative to accelerate the deployment of Quantel’s generationQ technology across the broadcast, post and DI industries.
Originally introduced in 2002, the company’s generationQ concept is now leveraged in a full range of products that offer expandability in both hardware and software. The generationQ product range includes Quantel’s sQ server, eQ for HD/multi-resolution post- production workflows; iQ, for DI projects, and the enhanced Paintbox for graphics production.
