Hebden Bridge, 27th May 2020 — Calrec has created a new position to further cement its reputation as a market leader in IP technology. Dave Sampson has taken on the role of Network Specialist to provide in-house expertise that strengthens Calrec’s ability to support customers in the move to IP.
A Calrec team member for seven years, Sampson previously held the role of Product Test Engineer where he was responsible for compliance testing of Calrec’s AoIP products to industry standards including ST2110, AES67, NMOS and more.
“As IP connectivity becomes increasingly widespread and more accessible to all sectors of our industry, it’s vital that Calrec continues to invest in supporting its development. The transition to IP affects pre-sales, integration and post sales projects, and this new role helps us to support our customers move into an IP environment with confidence,” said Dave Letson, VP of Sales.
He added, “Given Dave’s extensive experience both of AoIP and Calrec’s product range he will be a significant addition to the team that will strengthen Calrec’s reputation as a trusted advisor in IP networking.”
Sampson will provide technical support and consultancy for the design, development and delivery of IP-based networking solutions for Calrec customers, as well as create and deliver training and knowledge-based documentation.
Sampson commented, “I’m delighted to be moving into a new role with Calrec where I can help to keep the company ahead of the curve with audio over IP. This industry is changing so quickly and being up to date with front line technology, and sharing that knowledge with customers, is one of the attributes that makes Calrec such a forward-thinking organisation.”
