Argosy, a leading international supplier of HD broadcast cables and studio infrastructure products, has announced the appointment of Daniel Hinton to the position of Regional Sales Manager, Europe.  Hinton will be responsible for supporting Argosy’s broadcast and pro-AV customers in Europe and driving the company’s plans to grow its business across this region.  Hinton started his role at Argosy on 11 July 2016.

Hinton comes to Argosy with a wealth of experience in broadcast equipment sales and business development, most recently with ATEN, the Taiwanese-based management solution and connectivity specialist.  At ATEN, Hinton was responsible for working with distributors, resellers and end users to specify solutions in KVM, power management and audio visual marketplaces as well as growing their customer base. ATEN has previously supplied products to Argosy giving Hinton the advantage of understanding the business.

“We are delighted to have Daniel on board as he brings an abundance of technical understanding and expertise from his tenure at ATEN,” said Chris Smeeton, Business Unit Director at Argosy.  “He is ideally-suited to further build the Argosy business into adjacent markets and support our future growth into key European territories.”

Hinton will add specialist knowledge of KVM extender technology and intelligent mains distribution units (MDU’s), which Argosy will be showcasing at IBC 2016 in Amsterdam as the company moves to focus on its ‘intelligent’ technology.

Argosy has recently stepped beyond the provision of fixed installation video distribution products after a successful integration into IEWC’s Broadcast & Communications Division. Argosy has transformed its business from a ‘passive technology’ infrastructure vendor to an active player in both the broadcast market and adjacent vertical markets such as pro-AV.
