Ottawa, Otario – Chris Barrett, formerly the VP of Engineering for the Ottawa-based Stratford Managers, has joined International Datacasting as its Vice President of Research & Development. IDC is a global leader in video, audio and data contribution and distribution solutions serving the world’s premier broadcasters.
Barrett has a proven track record in driving innovation and new technologies, increasing throughput and growing teams. “I like to take things to the next level,” he said. “And I’m pleased to join a dynamic company that is making great strides in new product design and development. I’m particularly impressed with the complexity of the successful factory testing of the LASER targeted ad insertion platform with an international broadcaster.
