(Newbury, United Kingdom--June 14, 2013) Quantel announced today the appointment of Chris Steele to the Position of Senior Product Manager, Broadcast. Steele will be responsible for bringing Quantel's revolutionQ software production system through the final stages of development, and introducing it to the broadcast market around the world.
Steele joins Quantel following a varied and distinguished career in the post and broadcast marketplace. He began his career operating one of the industry's first animated graphics systems at ITN. Chris then joined the supplier side of the industry and was instrumental in the development and marketing of advanced computer graphics, special effects and workflow systems with several companies. More recently Chris has acted as a consultant to a number of companies, including The Foundry, Pixel Power and Marquis Broadcast.
"Joining Quantel at this exciting time in the company's on-going development was an opportunity I had to grasp with both hands," said Steele. "What Quantel is doing with revolutionQ is forward-looking and daring. Most companies that are established in a particular market shy away from disruptive technologies. Not so Quantel - revolutionQ has the potential to completely change how broadcasters go about production, and I'm looking forward to helping its development and showing the industry its enormous potential. I have a huge amount of respect for Quantel gained over many years watching its ideas change the industry time and again. Quantel is a major player in our industry and with the new technologies it is developing, is set to become an even more dominant force."
"We're delighted that Chris Steele has joined us at this key time for Quantel. His wide range of skills and experience will be a great benefit to us in focusing on real customer needs as we move into the next phase of Quantel's - and our industry's - revolution," said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director.
