Broadcast products solutions provider Oxygen DCT has named Phil Wilton Director of Technical Solutions. The appointment comes a few months after Chris Whittock joined Oxygen DCT as Director of Business Development.

Oxygen DCT is one of the fastest growing companies in the broadcast industry, with a portfolio that now stands at more than 3,000 carefully designed broadcast and production products. It operates internationally, and is increasing its market share year on year.

Whittock began his career in broadcast television as a maintenance engineer for the Inner London Education Authority educational television service. He then moved to Sony as a broadcast engineer, and spent 30 years with the company moving from engineering to sales, product engineering and finally its UK Projects department. He then moved to BSkyB as Project Engineering Manager, responsible for all engineering projects across all of the Sky sites.

Wilton’s experience encompasses more than 25 years in the broadcast industry. He began his career with the Independent Broadcast Authority in the UK, on operations and maintenance of TV and radio transmitters. In the early 1980s he moved to Sony Broadcast where his first role was in the professional audio service group looking after studio recording equipment. With the advent of digital recording technology he moved across to product management, looking after digital audio recording products covering CD mastering, DAT and studio digital multitrack recorders.

In the late 1990s, Wilton extended his remit to broadcast video and was responsible for running one of the Product Management groups covering the Sony EMEA region, with a product portfolio that included all mainstream video production and recording equipment such as Digital Betacam, Betacam SX, DVCAM, HDCAM, switchers, routers, processors and pro-audio.

He joins Oxygen DCT from the Snell group, where he held the position of Product Manager for playout automation and media asset management products. He has contributed to two professional audio standards, authored numerous magazine articles and event presentations as well as authoring and delivering two professional papers.

‘Both of these appointments have enabled us to significantly grow our management team,’ says company MD, Steve Hathaway. ‘We now have a team with more than 75 years combined experience of the broadcast and postproduction industries. The expertise that Phil and Chris bring to the company will better enable us to manage Oxygen DCT’s ongoing expansion and meet the increasing client-led demands attributed to the expansion of our products and services.’
