NEP Connect Boosts Services With New Appointments

News Image
NEP Connect has appointed Chris Ainger as Head of Technical Sales, and Jeff Hallman as Global Network Solutions Architect.

Chris Ainger joined NEP from BT Media and Broadcast, bringing 17 years of experience in creating and delivering solutions for the media industry globally. An alumni of the University of Kent, Chris started his career in 2000 at Marconi designing SDH and ATM telecoms networks before joining BT's broadcast services business as a design engineer in 2002. Over the next few years Chris was part of wider team leading the transition of broadcast transmission into the MPLS-IP world, helping to deliver the first MPLS-based Global Network for live broadcast. Since 2010 Chris led the Technical Solutions team designing platforms and bespoke media networking solutions for major global broadcasters.
 
Jeff Hallman spent 12 years working as the Broadcast Systems Integrations Manager for the Summer and Winter Olympic Host Broadcaster from Atlanta 96 to Torino 06, before joining Genesis Networks in 2007. He helped the innovative start-up usher in the era of IP-based live content and media file delivery to the international broadcast community. In the years since, he has been involved in the design and deployment of global content transport and delivery solutions onsite at some of the biggest events in the sports and entertainment business. Jeff also helped develop full-time, permanent network infrastructures used by linear broadcast playout centres, content streaming and delivery networks, and media production facilities in every region of the world.

"We are delighted that Chris and Jeff are part of the effort spearheading the growth of NEP Connect worldwide as the industry increasingly pivots towards centralised production workflows with our Anylive® media network as a critical part," commented NEP Connect's Managing Director, David Meynell. "Chris' remit is far reaching and he will not only lead the Technical Sales Team but work on new solutions to grow our Gateway services and support me in launching new services, with a focus on broadcasters' internal networks. Jeff will work alongside Chris in supporting the NEP Connect team's aspirations to achieve global growth across the Anylive® media network, helping us in our ambition to become the connectivity provider of choice for critical media content, and supporting NEP with growth in centralised production solutions."
 
Both appointments are effective immediately.
