AIMS takes shape with board and chairs

Published: WORLD

WORLD: Three directors have been appointed to the board of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), a recently-founded not-for-profit organisation intending to promote open standards and interoperability in the transition to IP. Chairs and deputy chairs for the newly formed marketing and technical working groups have also been announced.

Now taking their seats on the AIMS board are chairman Michael Cronk (senior vice president of strategic marketing for Grass Valley), vice chairman Steve Reynolds (chief technology officer of Imagine Communications), and financial officer Andreas Hilmer (director of marketing and communications for Lawo).

In turn, the board has appointed Kerry Wheeles of Imagine Communications as chair of the AIMS technical working group, and Scott Barella from 5280 Broadcast as deputy chair.

‘Kerry brings rich experience in technical standards development,’ commented Michael Cronk. ‘I want to thank Kerry for his willingness to serve in this capacity. I am also pleased to welcome the appointment of Scott Barella as Deputy Chair. Scott brings a wealth of industry knowledge, both from a vendor and user perspective, of broadcast technologies. Under Kerry and Scott’s leadership, the technical working group will guide AIMS members and the industry, on successful implementation of and compliance with, the standards that will shape the transition to IP.

‘As we move to implement interoperable solutions over IP, there is a need to swiftly identify interoperability issues, clarify operating points, demonstrate interoperability, and develop positions on yet to be standardised aspects of IP. By doing so, we can serve to greatly accelerate the deployment of multi-vendor interoperable IP solutions which support the great work of SMPTE/EBU/VSF.’

Meanwhile the organisation’s Marketing Working Group now has a chair and deputy chair in Andy Warman (Harmonic) and Roger Sherwood (Cisco) respectively.

‘As we move forward, Andy and Roger will work to establish additional roles within the marketing working group,’ continued Mr Cronk. ‘There is much to accomplish in these formative times in our industry, and critical milestones such as NAB loom very near on the horizon. Please join me in congratulating Andy and Roger on their appointments and offering your full support as we work together towards one common set of protocols for IP interoperability.’
