GARLAND, TX – AmpThink is excited to announce that Robare Pruyn has joined AmpThink as a Technology Architect focusing on packetized voice and video solutions. Robare will lead AmpThink’s growing IPTV practice as well as formalize AmpThink’s IP Telephony capabilities within the scope of larger venue projects where AmpThink has been hired as the Master Technology Integrator (MTI). Robare will work closely with AmpThink’s in-house creative agency to deliver signage and mixed media solutions that allow clients to monetize their investments in technology.
“With deep knowledge of digital signage and broadcast technology, Robare will enable our team to execute more complex media strategies using the IPTV platforms we are deploying in venues throughout North America” said Dan Grimsely, AmpThink’s Creative Director. “In particular, Robare’s experience with delivering HTML 5 based content on the IPTV platforms we’re installing will be uniquely valuable to our clients as we grow our library of HTML 5 software tools for applications such as digital menu boards”.
Prior to joining AmpThink, Robare ran his own media consulting business for 5 years after working for the NY Yankees and Cisco Systems. Since beginning his career at Cisco, Robare has worked at some of the most famous sports and entertainment venues in North America including project work at MetLife Stadium, TD Garden, and recently Levi’s Stadium where he assisted AmpThink with the roll-out of a Cisco Vision solution featuring over 2,500 digital media players (DMPs). More than just a Cisco Vision expert, Robare has a broad skillset covering satellite and cable delivery, IPTV head ends, encoding, production IP video distribution, and integration with other venue systems such as scoreboards.
