Tightrope Media Systems announced today that it has launched an international sales division to be headed by Steve Israelsky. He is transitioning from VP of Domestic Sales and Chief Marketing Officer to Executive Director - International Sales. Tightrope Media Systems is a leading broadcast equipment company that provides web-centric digital signage, broadcast automation systems, broadcast video servers, and Zeplay - a four in/four out instant replay machine for arenas, stadiums and mobile production trucks. Tightrope’s international division will primarily focus on Zeplay instant replays, and Carousel digital signage. Zeplay is a lightning fast, rock solid 4 in/4 out instant replay machine that constantly records four 100Mbps HD-SDI streams while simultaneously playing out any or all of the streams. It is designed so that a single operator can effectively manage all 4 angles and all eight streams and features a super smooth jog/shuttle controller, a built-in, multi-viewer for all eight streams, and GPI interfaces for integration into production systems. Carousel is Tightrope’s easy to use, browser based, digital signage system. It is deployed at over a thousand organizations throughout the United States, with many customers in the K-12, higher education, municipal, hospital, and corporate markets. Users can use existing flash, video and graphics or enter messages directly with Carousel’s template driven system. Carousel also pulls in weather reports, RSS feeds, traffic cams, video feeds and more. According to Tightrope CEO Eric Henry, “At NAB this year it became very apparent that with the launch of Zeplay and the interest that Zeplay and Carousel received from the International attendees, the time was right to take our International sales efforts beyond the exploratory stage and into a full scale sales effort. Steve did such an outstanding job building our U.S. sales and marketing organization that we felt he was a perfect fit to take Zeplay and Carousel into the international arena.” “I am very excited about taking Zeplay and Carousel internationally”, stated Mr. Israelsky. “Based on the level of interest in our product line from international attendees at NAB, I am extremely optimistic about our international prospects”.
