FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OPENS COLLAGE GRAPHICS, INC. TO PROVIDE SALES AND SUPPORT TO THE
Industry Veteran David Brack Appointed President of U.S. Subsidiary
(Boca Raton, FL, September 1, 1999) Pixel Power Ltd., the Cambridge, England provider of powerful graphics and character generator products, today announced the formation of Collage Graphics, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary created to support the company's growing U.S. customer base. David Brack, who has 25 years of experience in the computer graphics area of the broadcast television industry, has been appointed President of the new company.
Brack is charged with capitalizing on the growing interest and demand for Pixel Power's two main products, Collage and Clarity. Collage is a dedicated character generator, still store and paint system and is the flagship product for the company. Earlier this year, it was joined by Clarity, an award-winning HD character generator designed specifically for the U.S. market.
One of the main reasons Brack was selected as President of Collage Graphics is his track record in setting up U.S. organizations for non-U.S. companies. He will use his own considerable industry experience to build on the positive reputation Pixel Power has already established worldwide.
According to Brack, "working with Pixel Power provides the opportunity to bring leading edge technology to the entire U.S. market." Even with limited efforts to this point, the products have generated a great deal of interest. "The establishment of Collage Graphics," adds Brack, "will bring the enormous benefits associated with a hands-on effort and will increase the U.S. presence for both the products and the companies."
Brack is joined by Michael Graves, who has spent the past five years representing Pixel Power products for the company's U.S. distributor. "Bringing Michael into Collage Graphics provides continuity for our existing customers and insures that we can offer high quality product training and support immediately," comments Brack.
James Gilbert, one of the founders of Pixel Power, believes "it is imperative that we have a U.S. company to meet the support requirements created by the demand for our systems. I am sure that all our present and future customers will appreciate the depth of experience that these appointments bring. Together, we will continue to develop and provide the innovative technology that this fast-moving industry needs."
