Sony Professional Solutions Europe has appointed Richard Scott as its head of media solutions.

“As the European broadcast and media market continues to evolve quickly, Sony is well positioned to take a clear leadership role, with a strong focus on innovative and transformational solutions for its broad range of customers.
