CP Stamps Sr. AE Stripes On An AV, Broadcast Services Pro


Broadcasters, sports leagues and teams, and event and production companies are among the clients serviced by CP Communications.

Now, they’ll be dealing with a new Senior Account Executive for CP’s AV and Broadcast Services.

Ian McKelvy is now in the role and will focus on business development around CP Communications’ products and services, including equipment sales and rentals.

His initial efforts will focus on broadcast and AV business growth in the greater New York City region.

He most recently managed technical sales for Jetwave Wireless’ RF audio business, where he spearheaded product sales, packaged wireless rentals and frequency coordination for distributed antenna systems in the New York City region.

McKelvy also spent close to 10 years as Bexel Broadcast Services, rising to Operations Manager — a role that oversaw key business functions and financial performance.

As CP Communications increasingly leverages IP and bonded cellular technologies for these same purposes, McKelvy sees an opportunity to position the company for a much broader array of business opportunities.

“The availability of RF spectrum continues to shrink across the country, which is affecting how companies like CP Communications approach live production,” McKelvy said. “My experience in RF frequency coordination and design will bring value to their more traditional services, as the industry learns how to more efficiently manage our shrinking RF spectrum. However, the growth of their Red House Streaming (RHS) solutions for IP, cloud and bonded cellular networking provides an innovative response to the challenges our customers face in live production, while providing a more efficient price point that will attract a much broader customer base.”

CP Communications is the exclusive distributor of Mobile Viewpoint products in the United States.
