‘I am pleased with the trust and confidence that the Riedel team has in my abilities to assume this new role, which is dedicated to our efforts to shape future workflows for the broadcast, entertainment, and A/V industries,’ Lavoie says. ‘I look forward to keep exploring untapped possibilities in the realm of IP technology with the talented Riedel R&D team – the best and the brightest in the field.’

‘With our media and entertainment customers undergoing major disruptive change as they embark on the transition to IP, it’s more important than ever to strengthen our engineering teams doing cutting-edge research and development. Renaud is the ideal leader to focus some of the most creative minds of our industry on this effort,’ adds Riedel.
