Broadcast Pix Strengthens Management to Exploit New Leadership Products

Former President Ken Swanton Named CEO, Rob Flory Becomes Board Chairman, Ron Gruner Added as Board Member

Billerica, Massachusetts – Following several new innovations that enhance its leadership product line of integrated video production systems, Broadcast Pix™ today announced a series of personnel changes to strengthen the management of the company. Broadcast Pix President Ken Swanton has been promoted to CEO, financier Robert H. Flory, Jr. is now Chairman of the Board of Directors, and entrepreneur Ron Gruner is now a member of the Board of Directors.

Broadcast Pix recently introduced and began shipping: Mica systems – powerful integrated HD production system from $16,900; Granite 6000 systems – the largest integrated production systems; and VOX – innovative voice-automated production systems. These products are now being used by leading customers in broadcast, internet, radio and projection applications.

“Rob Flory and Ron Gruner bring tremendous expertise in managing rapidly growing businesses,” said Swanton. “Broadcast Pix has grown every year, and now with our new HD product family that’s used by leading customers worldwide, Rob and Ron will help raise Broadcast Pix to the next level.”

Swanton’s career in the video and computer industries has helped him combine the two in today’s Broadcast Pix live production systems. He has led Broadcast Pix since co-founding it in 2002, and previously served as president of Echolab for five years. For the sixteen years before that he was at Digital Equipment Corporation, which was the world’s second largest computer company, where he served as vice president.

Flory has been president of Flory Investments, Inc., a privately owned investment company, since 1995. Since 2004, he has also been chairman of portfolio company, Chemogen, Inc., which created a patented antigen-specific test for the diagnosis of tuberculosis in HIV patients. In addition to playing an active role at Chemogen and now Broadcast Pix, he also oversees some of the sales and marketing activities of Eberle Winery, a portfolio company since 1996.

Gruner is chairman and co-founder of Sky Analytics. Previously he founded Shareholder.com (originally Direct Report Corporation) in 1991 and served as its president until 2006, when it was purchased by NASDAQ. Before that, he co-founded and was president of Alliant Computer Systems which became a public company. Gruner holds 24 patents from his extensive work in the computer industry.
