Suitcase TV, a leader in software engineering for the broadcast industry has announced the promotion of Ed Calverley to VP products as part of the company’s continued expansion. Ed’s new areas of responsibility come into effect immediately.
Ed joined Suitcase TV as product manager just one day before BVE 2015. In his short tenure with the company, he has made an impact on the existing range of products and has already implemented an ambitious programme of alterations and enhancements as well as the scoping of new product lines and solutions. The promotion to VP products will enable Ed to steer product development at boardroom level.
The new role will benefit greatly from Ed’s considerable experience. Having initially joined the BBC as a project manager in 1999, he was privileged to be put through their broadcast engineering training, a programme he was later involved in delivering as a lecturer at the corporation’s training centre in Worcestershire. Whilst working at OmniBus, he transitioned from project management into product management and oversaw the evolution of their iTX playout solution that led to the company being acquired by Miranda in 2010. More recently, he has worked at OASYS Automated Playout Ltd where he was instrumental in establishing the company as a major supplier of IT-based playout technologies and in its transition into BroadStream Solutions in 2014.
“I’m delighted with this promotion as it puts me in a position where I can have a much greater say in the direction of the company,” Ed explains. “Our customers tell us that they rely on us for innovation, robust products, and our continued ability to deliver bespoke solutions, so I look forward to building on that reputation and bringing more of what customers want.”
Fraser Jardine, commercial director at Suitcase TV adds: “Ed will leverage the considerable skills and technologies built here at Suitcase TV over the last 15 years to create sensational shifts in broadcast technologies and workflows. With his dynamic style of product development, I’m confident those changes will be coming thick and fast.”
Ed and other members of the Suitcase team will be at IBC 2015 where they are keen to demonstrate the company’s groundbreaking products on their stand at 2.C10.
