Cambridge Imaging Systems rebrands, changes name

Cambridge Imaging Systems, developer of the Imagen Enterprise Video Platform, has announced rebrand of the company to align with its award-winning product, becoming Imagen Ltd.

In a further display of the company’s ambitious growth plans it has appointed Jonathan Hebbes as vice president of sales, a role in which he will be responsible for attracting new enterprise customers globally.

The company has undergone significant change since its foundation over twenty years ago. In the last few months alone, Imagen has opened a new, larger headquarters on its campus to the north of Cambridge; appointed John Pearson – formerly Virgin Radio co-founder and Chairman of the highly successful music app technology Shazam – as independent chairman; and appointed Monisha Shah, the former head of sales at BBC Worldwide and a trustee at the Tate, as non-executive director.

Tom Blake, CEO of Imagen Ltd, said: “We are immensely proud of the Cambridge Imaging story to date and are hugely excited by the prospects ahead. We feel that aligning the company name to that of our leading product gives confidence to our customers and the global market that we are committed to further enhancing our core offering and their video could not be in safer hands.

“Online video is the fastest growing medium in history. Businesses of every size are waking up to the imminent crisis that faces them in managing this explosion of content. Imagen Enterprise Video Platform is the solution; it is the Platform for Enterprises to store and access their video.

“Having strengthened our board and executive team, we are perfectly placed to make the most of the growth in the industry, and to keep evolving our products for our global customer base, which includes several household names.”

Imagen has recently had multiple corporate successes, including being named Frost & Sullivan’s Global Digital Asset Management Entrepreneurial Company of the Year for 2015. In April 2015, Imagen (under the Cambridge Imaging name) was selected by the London Stock Exchange to join its ELITE programme, which is designed to support ambitious high growth businesses and facilitate direct contact with Europe’s financial and advisory community through their unique online portal.
