Wohler Announced Four New Hires in Sales and Engineering

Wohler Technologies has expanded it staff in key sales and engineering positions as Shawn Sennett will now serve as director of Western U.S. sales for Wohler signal management and monitoring products and Jerry Williamson will serve as director of eastern U.S. sales. In addition, Brian Massie has been hired as sales engineer and Tom McFarland as QA engineer for the Wohler RadiantGrid business line.

“The unique forward-looking functionality of new product releases across our business has opened up significant growth opportunities for Wohler,” says Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler president and CEO. “These new additions — Shawn, Jerry, Brian, and Tom — to the Wohler sales and engineering teams will ensure that we can keep pace with the growing momentum created by innovations such as our MPEG monitoring line and the new WohlerDPP, powered by RadiantGrid.”

Wohler’s MPEG Series of broadcast-quality MPEG video monitors are the first universal digital broadcast confidence monitor line in the broadcast industry, according to the company. By consolidating MPEG-2 and MPEG-4/H.264 streams into the mainstream workflow, the Wohler monitors enable a single operator to monitor all video streams, even those destined for delivery via Web portals and mobile services, from a single system and interface. In doing so, the system further reduces the cost and complexity of handling the various streams processed and distributed by today’s broadcast and production facilities. Handling the MPEG Series and other signal management and monitoring solution sales, Sennett will be based in Los Angeles, and Williamson will be based in Philadelphia.

The RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform and RadiantGrid-powered file-based processing solutions are likewise transforming critical workflows within the media enterprise. The expansion of RadiantGrid engineering personnel comes as demand for these solutions continues to rise. Massie will be based in the U.K., and McFarland will be based in San Francisco.
