News Image
SmartLabs has appointed Rick Sailor as Vice President for Business Development North America & Canada.

Gary Hamer, SmartLabs Global SVP for Sales and Business Development, said: "Service providers are facing some difficult challenges now about the best way to provide video; how to package channels and maintain costly equipment. At SmartLabs, we can help local providers address some of those challenges in a profitable way that gives them a competitive edge, thanks to our global experience. We're delighted that Rick has joined us to lead our US and Canadian expansion at this pivotal time. He has a strong heritage in the video market, having worked in the industry for many years. I am sure he will do an excellent job in supporting our customers in the US and Canada."

Unique in the US market, SmartLabs offers a complete video streaming system from transcoding to middleware and STBs. Well-established worldwide, SmartLabs has over seven million subscribers and has developed an impressive global presence over the past thirteen years.

Rick Sailor said: "The opportunity to lead the roll-out of SmartLabs to the US and Canadian markets was too good to miss. The company has been in the business since it was in its infancy and has such a good track record in multiple countries, operating on multiple devices, deploying solutions in managed and unmanaged IP, Hybrid DVB+ IP and mobile networks. To be able to bring this experience to the US and the Canadian market is really exciting."
