LEADERSHIP TEAM STRENGTHENED
2018 - November
Business development at SDNsquare receives a boost with the arrival of Henry Alexander, who brings 20 years’ experience in broadcast, media and IT. In addition to providing strategic broadcast consulting, he has been Head of Broadcast Operations and Mobile Productions for the Belgian public service media organization RTBF and Senior Vice President Market and Products at EVS. His strategic and operational expertise in international sales, product development and executive management will help to consolidate SDNsquare’s place as an industry leader in IP network orchestration.
SDNsquare co-founder Lieven Vermaele will work alongside Henry Alexander until the end of 2018, after which he will take up a new position as COO of Belgian public service media organization VRT. He will remain close to the leadership team at SDNsquare, where he will stay on the Board and a key shareholder. Henry Alexander will become CEO of SDNsquare as of January 2019, working closely with CTO and co-founder Luc Andries.
SVG - Sport Production Summit 2018
2018 - September
“Changing the Concept of Outside Broadcasting - OBjective 2020”, where SVG Europe’s Fergal Ringrose had a conversation with Ronald Meyvisch, CTO at Euro Media Group (EMG), Peter Shut, CTO at Axon, and Lieven Vermaele, co-founder and MD at SDNsquare, about EMG’s OBjective2020 plan.
Said Meyvisch: “We believe in 2026 we’ll see more generic hardware, more scalable kit, and modular and more distributed systems…. EMG is working to create this.”
In 2017 EMG built its first concept set up for the modular architecture. It is using Axon’s Neuron and Cerebrum platforms, and it is working on how to solve the complex network management system with SDNsquare. Additionally, the group is building two 40 seater OB trucks now that connect to external mobile datacentres. Each truck is set to be tech-light, allowing room for a large number of operators inside as the majority of tech is encased in the attached datacentres.
