News Image
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has announced the election of Scott Barella and Andy Warman to the organisation's board of directors.

Barella, Chief Technology Officer of Utah Scientific, has served as deputy chairman of the AIMS Technical Working Group since January 2016. He has been involved in the broadcast industry since 1977 and has held several high-level technical management positions throughout his career. In addition to his role on the AIMS board, Barella continues to serve as deputy chairman of the AIMS Technical Working Group.

Warman is Director of Production and Playout Strategy and Market Development at Harmonic, where he provides business development and strategic direction for Harmonic's line of playout-enabled solutions. Prior to Harmonic, Warman spent 11 years at Harris Broadcast (now Imagine Communications) in various product management roles. Besides serving on the AIMS board, Warman will continue his role as the AIMS Marketing Working Group chair, a position he has held since January 2016. He will also lead the newly formed AIMS Policy and Procedures Working Group.

Michael Cronk, AIMS Board Chair, said: "Several existing standards bodies and other groups are working hard to create technical recommendations, standards, and architectures around IP signal transport. At AIMS, our role is to support those organizations by encouraging adoption of their work and cultivating IP interoperability. Like all of our members, Scott and Andy are passionate about this effort because they believe that the only way to make progress is by working together. Clearly our members are confident that these two will bring that passion to their roles on the board."

Both Barella and Warman begin their board terms with immediate effect. Existing board members Cronk, Deputy Board Chair Steve Reynolds, and Chief Financial Officer Andreas Hilmer all were re-elected to their positions.
