As we are now positioned for growth, Robert's experience will provide us leadership in finding new ways to use our technology for the benefit of the media and entertainment industry."
Ekstrom said: "Digital Vision has a world-class portfolio of image processing algorithms and products. We are very well positioned to grow in our core video postproduction market as well as in adjacent markets like broadcasting and transmission. I am very excited to be working with such a talented group of people; it's an amazing team. Certainly, market conditions have been difficult over the past few years, but we are making real progress in addressing the changing needs of our customers and I'm looking forward to working with them and all our partners in creating a strong 2005."
Bengt Broman is stepping down as CEO of Digital Vision in order to take on the role of CEO at Teracom.
