AIMS Announces 2020-2021 Board, Welcoming New Members Terry Holton and Andrew Starks

The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) today announced a newly elected 2020-2021 board of directors that will lead the organization's effort toward a standards-based IP infrastructure for professional media. AIMS Chairman of the Board Michael Cronk (Grass Valley), Vice Chair Steve Reynolds (Imagine Communications), and Chief Financial Officer Andreas Hilmer (Lawo) were re-elected to their positions and are joined by newly elected board members Terry Holton (Yamaha) and Andrew Starks (Macnica).

"With the pace of IP adoption and innovation accelerating, our work to educate the broadcast and Pro AV markets is as — or more — important than ever," said Cronk. "Terry and Andrew both have contributed enormously to the success of AIMS in promoting a common set of standards for IP media transport across the media and entertainment industry. We are pleased to welcome them to the AIMS board, where they will be invaluable in helping us to carry on this critical work."

Terry Holton has served as AIMS audio chair, leading a number of initiatives and AIMS participation in several audio events. Holton was previously general manager of the Yamaha R&D Centre in London. He is now a consultant specializing in professional media networking solutions and represents Yamaha in AIMS.

Andrew Starks is the director of product management for Macnica, where he leads the company's standards efforts and has been a significant contributor to the AIMS Pro AV initiative, including the development of the IPMX roadmap, and its marketing plan. His prior experience includes co-founding Tightrope Media Systems, where he collaborated to design and market multiple award-winning products in Pro AV and broadcast as the company's CMO.

AIMS board members are selected annually. Their terms start immediately.

CJP Broadcast Reports a Turbulent but Successful 2020 Posted: 02/12/2020
CJP Broadcast Reports a Turbulent but Successful 2020

Multimedia systems integrator, equipment specialist and service provider CJP Broadcast reports a challenging but successful 2020.

“2020 was expected to be the year when 8K became a practical resolution for future-focused TV and digital cine content producers,” comments CJP Broadcast MD Chris Phillips. “Instead the media world, like everyone else, had to face the upheaval of a pandemic. The consequent restrictions on social gathering had one positive effect in encouraging organisations with a strong membership base to explore the potential of television. We’ve been working with several football clubs by making their matches accessible to fans who would otherwise have attended in person. We also successfully completed a video production and live streaming project for the highest-profile semi-finals and final in the UK football calendar. This solution centred on our Live Sports Production System which was deployed to augment the traditional broadcast coverage with behind-the-scenes content. The resultant video content was then made available online for easy access by supporters during and after each match.”

Black News Channel Mobilizes Flawlessly with the Flexibility of their IP-Based Communications System

Clear-Com’s user-friendly, reliable systems and outstanding customer service contribute to new network’s success.

Debuting in February 2020 during Black History Month, Black News Channel (BNC) operates out of its brand new headquarters facility based in Tallahassee, Florida. BNC is an independent network that is minority-owned and operated, whose mission is to provide intelligent programming dedicated to the unique perspective of African American communities.

Almost immediately after bringing their new purpose-built facility online, the network had to shift to a remote production workflow as COVID restrictions sent people home. The flexible, IP-based comms system from Clear-Com, which had been installed in the facility by BeckTV, was able to flex to meet the comms challenges of today and tomorrow.
