Iroquois, Ontario, Canada – July 28th, 2011 – The members of the consulting company “3G Engineering” began full time employment for Ross Video early July 2011. Many people would know the founders of 3G Engineering – Roger Smith, Paul Ernest, and Greg Carlson – as the core switcher design team for Echolab, most recently the Atem switcher line. Echolab has since been shut down and the assets have been sold.
This is in fact the second round of hiring of ex-Echolab employees into Ross. Nigel Spratling, the former President of Echolab, joined Ross in 2010 as Marketing and Business Development Manager.
This new US-based R&D lab joins Ross’ existing R&D operations in Canada, the Netherlands, and Australia.
“I am very impressed with the engineering capabilities of the 3G Engineering team”, says David Ross, CEO, Ross Video, “This is a great way to enhance our R&D presence in the United States, and further elevates Ross as a global company”.
On behalf of 3G Engineering, Roger Smith said, “The team at Ross really appreciated our abilities and made us feel very welcome. We’re going to have a lot of fun developing new products with them.”
