IP audiovisual media network specialist Audinate has elected David Krall as Chairman of its board of directors.

David KrallThe appointment comes at a time of rapid growth for Audinate, with the company reporting its most recent fiscal year delivering almost double its revenue from the prior year.

Having joined the board earlier in 2011, Krall brings more than 20 years of experience in building successful technology businesses, most recently serving as President and COO of Roku, a market leader in streaming entertainment devices for the TV. He has extensive A/V industry experience as the former CEO of Avid Technology. Under his leadership, Avid doubled its revenues to just under US$1bn annually, introduced new products in its core businesses, and expanded into new markets through organic growth and strategic acquisitions. In addition to his board roles, he currently serves as a strategic advisor to a number of startups, including Roku, Universal Audio, and GrapeGenie.

‘Audinate’s board of directors is integral to our ability to execute our growth strategy, and having someone with David’s industry background as our chair will be a tremendous asset,’ says Lee Ellison, President and CEO of Audinate. ‘David Krall’s diverse background in developing companies who are in the start-up’s high-growth phase, as well as large publically traded companies, will be a major benefit for Audinate moving forward.’

‘What first attracted me to Audinate was its advanced technology offering, allowing customers to send audio and video signals synchronously across standard IT networks,’ Krall says. ‘But what has impressed me most since joining the board has been the strength of the team behind this offering. Audinate definitely can compete at any weight class, and I think the company has a tremendous opportunity to make a big contribution to this industry.’

Krall also currently serves as Executive Chair of QSecure in addition to serving on the board of directors of Progress Software.
