Having led CBC’s IP transformation, which started in 2017, Vaillant ensured consistency of capital investment and the unification and standardization of the company’s technical architecture. He is recognised as a pioneer of IP implementation and has been heavily involved in the development of IP standards. Over the course of his 25+ years in IT leadership roles, Vaillant has become a long-standing member of the SMPTE Board of Governors, NABA (North American Broadcast Association) and EBU (European Broadcast Union).
In his new role, Vaillant will support Dejero’s product management team by collaborating with customers to solve existing challenges, develop strategies that take advantage of evolving technology for the future and help shape the company’s roadmap, including next generation mobile transmitters and cloud solutions.
With recent technology trends including multi-platform content delivery, IP-based contribution and distribution, remote production, virtualization, COTS and cloud-based workflows, broadcasters have a greater reliance on internet connectivity than ever. It’s this resilient, uninterrupted connectivity that Dejero is renowned for, made possible by its unique Smart Blending Technology that provides connection diversity, redundancy, and continuity by intelligently combining multiple networks into a single service, that is becoming even more vital.
