Cabot Communications has hired Richard Carlton as head of testing services. Joining from Virgin Media, where he was systems integration manager, Carlton will assist the middleware solutions firm with the development of a suite of automated testing products and services.
Prior to joining Virgin, Carlton held various positions including test manager, product manager and service engineer supervisor at cablecos Telewest and NTL prior to their merger as Virgin Media.
Bob Lamb, managing director at Cabot Communications said, “Testing is becoming increasingly important in the age of the connected TV. As the role of the internet expands in digital TV, so too does the time it takes for devices to be tested for market, creating a need for automated and more timely solutions. With over 28 years of experience in electronics, systems integration and testing, Richard provides us with a unique and practical skillset which is instrumental in making this happen.”
Cabot works directly with a number of industry organisations that include the Digital TV Group, Digitag and Freeview.
