Baron to top TeraNex

New CEO replaces Montelione

Taking advantage of the required high-definition broadcast conversions mandated by the Federal Communications Commission on networks, former Sony senior veep Michael Baron has taken over the reigns of the Lockheed Martin spinoff TeraNex to manufacture devices that will turn conventional analog television signals into digital displays.

To develop the converters, Orlando, Fla.-based TeraNex will use Video Computer image parallel processing technology from Lockheed Martin and ThermoElectron.

The device is specifically designed to perform video processing, pattern recognition and image analysis in real time, and will enable broadcasters and post-production houses to convert any video format to the 24-frame-per second HDTV video format.

TeraNex will also develop other products that convert analog to digital.

Baron will head the operation as CEO. He replaces John Montelione.

Video Computer targets

TeraNex will target the Video Computer to television broadcast stations, cable operators, video production studios and inhouse corporate production facilities.

Most recently, Baron served as senior veep of the Sony business systems group.

Linc Brookes, TeraNex’s director of engineering, has previously served as VP of engineering for Dynatech-owned Editing Machines and as software development VP for Media Cybernetics.

TeraNex DTV product manager Jed Deame worked as a key engineer in the image and signal processing section of Lockheed Martin’s electronics and missiles group.

Lockheed Martin engineer Woody Meeker has joined TeraNex as chief architect, and Michele Lewis will join TeraNex’s algorithm development division.
