Ithaki-Group has hired Karine Fouque to lead global sales at Transvideo and Aaton Digital.
Fouque will report to Jacques Delacoux, president of Transvideo and Aaton Digital.
Fouque, who has previously worked in a business development role for Canon in the broadcast and cinema industry, has extensive experience of direct and indirect sales and strategic marketing of professional cinema equipment in Europe.
“I am thrilled to represent such group of French brands that have established a proven track record over the years and taken a key position in the cinema industry,” Fouque said.
Jacques said: “Karine will help us to reach the growth that we are expecting for the next years by extending our market and service to different branches of our industries - she will be in charge of developing strategic partnerships with major manufacturers in the world.”
This year also sees Transvideo celebrate its 30 years in business, establishing itself globally with a strong line-up of on-board and field monitors and the expected on-location recorder CantarX3 from Aaton Digital is now being commercialised.
From 1985 onwards Transvideo has been creating products for the film industry and television production.
It designed the first professional flat panel monitor in 1990, and since then it has led the high-end on-board monitoring market, including metadata extraction from intelligent lenses such as Cooke/i and ARRI LDS.
In June 2013, Transvideo’s holding Ithaki acquired Aaton, the French manufacturer of cinematic equipment. Since this time, AATON-Digital developed the Cantar-X3, the most advanced on location sound recorder that received a Cinec Award in 2014.
