Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC), a Nikon company, is delighted to announce that highly experienced design engineer Graeme Kelly is the latest recruit to its Broadcast division. Kelly, who joins from senior engineering and management roles at Grass Valley, is MRMC’s new Head of Broadcast Products.
In over a decade at Grass Valley, Graeme has been at the cutting edge of the industry-wide transition from SDI to IP. He joined in 2011 as Principal Engineer in the Routing Group, contributing architecture, hardware, and FPGA designs to GV’s highly successful Sirius Routing range. He led the team within GV working on both SDI and IP interfaced multiviewers helping the MV-8 Series become a cornerstone of GV’s Live Production Business and as Senior Manager he also assumed responsibility for the software-defined Kaleido IP multi-viewing platform.
Armed with a Masters Degree in Electronics and Physics from the University of Glasgow, Graeme started his career at Snell & Wilcox as a Design Engineer and held various design and technical positions with a number of broadcast companies including Gennum, Sigma Designs, and Vutrix before arriving at Grass Valley.
He will bring all of this vast experience to bear at MRMC working alongside Paddy Taylor, Head of Broadcast at MRMC, and the Broadcast team.
“This industry is constantly changing because of technology advances and the clever application of that technology by engineering and design teams collaborating on research, development, and approach to market,” says Graeme Kelly. “I am very excited to be joining a company at the forefront of extending technology into live broadcast and to helping my colleagues at MRMC continue to inspire and innovate new products and services.”
“I am thrilled to welcome Graeme to the MRMC team and our expanding broadcast division,” comments Paddy Taylor, Head of Broadcast at MRMC. “His passion for product and his technical expertise is clear for all to see and I know that with Graeme onboard our drive for excellence can only attain new heights.”
