Coblat Digital has announced Dr Ciro Noronha has been appointed the company’s new chief technology officer.
He moves into the newly created role of CTO from his position as executive vice president of engineering.
Noronha, a founder of ImmediaTV Corporation which was acquired by Cobalt Digital in 2016, has worked in the compressed video over IP space since 1995.
He previously held engineering management positions at Optivision, SkyStream, Tandberg Television, and Ericsson, having led the development of several compression and networking products, including encoders, decoders, transcoders, gateways, and multiplexers.
Noronha is a founder of the RIST Forum, and currently serves as its president.
“This is an exciting time for Cobalt as the company progresses both geographically and technically,” said Chris Shaw, Cobalt COO. “We’ve experienced record-breaking sales month after month for the past few years and much of that success can be linked to Ciro’s ability to identify an industry need and bring new technologies to market. Now it’s time to acknowledge Ciro’s skill and talent with a promotion to CTO and watch his leadership drive the engineering department to the next level.”
