AIMS Entire Board Of Directors Elected For Another Term

News Image
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) has announced that its entire board of directors has been re-elected for another term.

The existing board members, all of whom served in 2016, will continue leading the AIMS effort to foster adoption of one set of common, ubiquitous, standards-based protocols for interoperability over IP in the media and entertainment industry.

The company also confirmed that, after nearly two years in existence, it has not only galvanized the industry around a standards-based approach to IP but has demonstrated significant cross-vendor interoperability, proving that the standards it recommends are usable and supported by a large portion of the vendor community.

AIMS is looking towards continued collaboration with its industry partners including AMWA to forge a common, interoperable path to higher-level functionality beyond SMPTE ST 2110 transport, including automated registration and discovery, connection management, and dematerialized facilities.
The 2017-2018 board members are:
• Chair — Michael Cronk, Vice President of Core Technology, Grass Valley
• Deputy Chair — Steve Reynolds, Chief Technology Officer, Imagine Communications
• Chief Financial Officer — Andreas Hilmer, Marketing and Communications Director, Lawo
• Board Member — Andy Warman, Director of Playout Solutions, Harmonic
• Board Member — Scott Barella, Chief Technology Officer, Utah Scientific

"In a little less than two years, we have moved from an uncertain future for IP to widespread vendor adoption and a massive response from the industry. There's no way we could have accomplished this enormous undertaking without people who are absolutely dedicated to it — including our own members and those in the standards organizations with whom we work so closely," said Michael Cronk, AIMS board chair. "I'm honored not only to have earned AIMS members' confidence but to continue working alongside my fellow board members, who have led the AIMS organization through two years of incredible progress toward a common, standards-based IP workflow. There is still much to do, though, including orchestrating successful deployments based on the recently approved SMPTE ST 2110 standards, providing education to the industry, and fostering the adoption of open standards and specifications for IP interoperability beyond just the transport layer. We look forward to the challenge."
