Beaverton, OR - Jan 8, 2014 - Biamp Systems, a provider of networked media systems, has hired Lab X Technologies founder and President Lee Minich. In addition to Minich, five engineers from the Rochester, NY-based company have joined Biamp as Lab X ceases operations.
Lab X has been a respected contract engineering design firm that provided professional A/V services. Minich, who founded Lab X in 1996, is an active member of the AVnu Alliance, a consortium that advocates adoption of the IEEE 802.1 Audio Video Bridging (AVB) standards designed to make Ethernet suitable for audio and video transport. Lab X and Biamp have partnered on several development projects in the past.
Reporting to Matt Czyzewski, executive vice president of operations, Minich will serve as engineering manager in charge of the Biamp Rochester office. This creates Biamp's third engineering facility in addition to those at the Beaverton, OR, headquarters and in Brisbane, Australia.
