"Omneon's media server systems offer flexible, forward-looking solutions for broadcast and other audio/video applications, and I'm very pleased to be joining the company as a local representative in France serving new and existing customers in this exciting market."
Cavalade began his career in broadcast as a regional manager for Getris Images, a French company supplying videographic systems worldwide.

Prior to joining Omneon, he was regional sales manager for SintecMedia in Europe's French- and German-speaking countries, building relationships with key television groups.
"François makes an excellent addition to Omneon, bringing to his new role an understanding not only of the French market, but also of the European and worldwide markets," said Alan Hoggarth, vice president of Omneon's operations in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. "As interest in Omneon media server systems continues to grow across the globe, we're confident that François will play an important part in maintaining the high standard of service and support for which our company is known."
