Fri 02, 10 2020

Shotoku USA, Shotoku Broadcast Systems’ North American operation, has expanded the U.S. team with the appointment of Jim Travers as Robotics Support Engineer effective October 1. Travers will provide remote and on-site robotics support and will perform installation and commissioning services for Shotoku’s North American customer base. Shotoku is a leading international manufacturer of high-quality, easy-to-use, robust and reliable robotic and manual camera support systems found in broadcast studios, financial institutions and legislative bodies around the globe.

With a successful career spanning more than 30 years, Travers has earned an excellent reputation in the industry as a skilled, experienced broadcast engineer, proficient in both the technology and operations that support an efficiently run studio. He has held key operations and engineering roles at several U.S. news networks and large market affiliates where he has won multiple awards. His wide experience includes design and management of multi-million-dollar studio renovations and responsibility for engineering and IT teams within busy newsrooms.

James Eddershaw, CEO Shotoku USA says, “As we continue to grow our U.S. customer base, we’re bringing Jim on-board to work with Matt Servis, expanding the outstanding service and support our customers have enjoyed for many years. Jim will hit the ground running with two large projects that begin this fall.”

Travers adds, “I’m delighted to join Matt and the rest of the Shotoku team at this pivotal time as the company continues to expand in North America. My experience over the years has prepared me to support the team and to continue to provide the highest quality service customers deserve and have come to expect.”
