Quantel has appointed John Cerquone as vice president major accounts in the U.S. Based in Manhattan, Cerquone is responsible for Quantel’s sales to the four major television networks and other large accounts. In this new role, Cerquone will ensure continued growth by creating and executing focused account strategies.

“I’m very happy to be joining Quantel at this exciting time in the company’s development,” Cerquone said. “Quantel has some of the most innovative and productive technology for broadcasters and postproduction houses, but is perhaps not as well-known in the U.S. as it deserves to be.”

Cerquone joins Quantel from Harris Corporation, where he held the position of regional sales manager covering accounts in New York and New England. Prior to this, Cerquone held senior positions with Miranda Technologies, Sony Electronics and Avid Technology.

“We’re very pleased to have John Cerquone on board,” said Martin Mulligan, Quantel sales director. “His track record in sales speaks for itself, and the wealth of experience and contacts John brings with him at senior levels in major accounts provides a tremendous platform for him to dynamically build our presence in this market.”

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
