With nearly twenty years‘ of sales and technical experience, with some of the biggest and best known names in the professional broadcast industry, including Grass Valley & Sony, Kevin has a vast experience from both a manufacturing and a production perspective. Kevin’s most recent role is re-establishing LEADER, the Japanese Test and Measurement equipment manufacturer back in the European marketplace. Next year LEADER will be celebrating 65 years and Kevin has been instrumental in re-establishing LEADER as the 1st choice, when it comes to testing UHDTV/4K and HDR signals. LEADER’s innovative graphical interfaces and real-time display tools are allowing production & operational staff to monitor the health of the video signal, without having to have an in-depth knowledge of waveform and vector displays, that would traditional be the responsibility of the engineer. The tradition waveform and vector displays are still present, but now production & operational staff can keep a cursory eye on the LEADER products, instead of having to devote a 100% of their attention to them.
