Cache-A Corporation, a supplier of network-attached archive appliances for the digital film, broadcast and professional video industries, announced today that it has acquired the intellectual property and assets of JDV Solutions, LLC, which specializes in high-performance data storage systems. This agreement will enable Cache-A to develop new tiers of managed storage and provide even broader archive solutions for the professional media & entertainment industry. The first of these innovations is scheduled to make its debut at this year’s National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Convention in Las Vegas, NV, in April.
Cache-A also announced that Ken Fuhrman has joined the company as Vice President of Engineering and Operations. Fuhrman was formerly President and CEO of JDV Solutions, which had assisted Cache-A in the development of its archive appliances. A software engineer, business executive and entrepreneur, Fuhrman has a deep background in the professional media & entertainment, data storage and consumer electronics industries.
“The acquisition of JDV’s assets adds strategic depth to the company’s technical portfolio and will allow for greater breadth in our products and services over time,” said Phil Ritti, President and CEO of Cache-A Corporation. “We are also very excited that Ken Fuhrman has joined Cache-A as our Vice President of Engineering and Operations. We have enjoyed an extensive relationship with Ken and JDV Solutions as we developed our archive products, and we now look forward to Ken’s direct technical leadership.”
Prior to JDV Solutions, Fuhrman founded Evolving Video Technologies, Inc. (EVT, Inc.), which he later sold to VizRT, and has held senior engineering positions with Hughes Aircraft Corporation and Ampex Corporation. Furman also founded Interact-TV Inc., which developed Home Entertainment Servers, one of the first large-capacity/low-cost storage solutions for the consumer electronics industry.
Fuhrman graduated from the University of Denver, summa cum laude, with a B. S. in Computer Science and Mathematics.
