Former OpenTV chairman and CEO Jim Chiddix has emerged as the vice chairman of broadband access equipment supplier Vyyo. Chiddix, whose career also includes a 15-year tenure as CTO of Time Warner Cable, is joined by fellow cable veteran Wayne Davis as CEO of the company. Davis takes over from Davidi Gilo who will remain as chairman of Vyyo.
Key to Vyyo’s basket of spectrum overlay solutions is its ability to expand the available bandwidth at costs significantly less than that of fibre.
Chiddix will remain on the board of directors at OpenTV.
