Video Compression Player Pumps Up Stateside Efforts


A London-based provider of video compression solutions is crossing the Atlantic — thanks to a “significant investment” from Novator Partners — and as a result has appointed its first-ever VP of U.S. Sales.

Taking the post at V-Nova is Bill Hendler. He’s now responsible for spearheading V-Nova’s growth in the fast-evolving areas of video compression and live contribution as well as advancing the PERSEUS codec into the U.S market.

Hendler brings more than 30 years of business leadership to V-Nova and was formerly Chief Technology Officer at Chyron. He’s also served as Director of Strategic Development for LiveU and Key Account Sales Director with Imagine Communications.

“Bill is a seasoned professional with substantial experience working with broadcasters, service providers, media companies and sport organisations,” says Matt Hughes, SVP of Global Sales of V-Nova. “He brings an extensive professional network within the media space that will help expand our market share and influence on the industry.”

Hendler will work closely with Hughes and V-Nova’s leadership team to cement the position of V-Nova’s leading products, solutions and services in the U.S market.

“I am thrilled to join V-Nova at a time of tremendous opportunity and growth,” says Bill Hendler.  “V-Nova has a long-standing history of entrepreneurial spirit and innovation in the media space. I look forward to expanding our market presence and influence to effectively improve our value proposition to customers through offering leading products and services.”
