Keith DesRosiers Joins Actus Digital As VP Of Solutions Engineering

Actus Digital, the premiere quality monitoring/alerting, compliance logging, content repurposing, and AI-based workflow solution company, enters 2022 with new product features and the monitoring and compliance-logging industry’s top solutions engineer.

Keith DesRosiers’ expertise with Actus Digital’s core competencies, integrated AI, cloud/hybrid architectures, and linear broadcast MAM workflows will help customers appreciate the affordable options Actus offers for solving complex media-related technical challenges and improving efficiency with greater consistency and quality.

“We are pleased to welcome Keith to Actus. He rounds out our team of seasoned industry professionals and has unmatched credentials in our space,” said Sima Levy, CEO of Actus Digital.

“Having Keith join Actus is akin to building a championship team with all-stars in every position,” said Ken Rubin, senior vice president at Actus. “Not only does he have specific technical expertise and industry experience, but both customers and coworkers love working with him.”

DesRosiers shares the company’s vision for expanding the utilization of the Actus solution beyond television and broadcast. He commented, “Although most companies rely on the Actus solution for its quality assurance alerting and compliance logging benefits, I am eager to demonstrate how the latest Actus software also enables media monitoring and MAM-like workflows to leverage the Actus solution far beyond engineering use cases.”

DesRosiers was instrumental in the rise and success of Volicon (later purchased by Verizon) over the nearly 10 years he spent there, before joining Digital Nirvana about three years ago. He is a 30-year industry veteran who started his career in engineering operations for MVPDs, including Comcast and Cablevision, before moving to technology manufacturing where he worked at PhyFlex Networks and Soapstone Networks.

Many of the nearly 600 customers that have deployed an Actus solution over the last 16 years did so for the reliability and core engineering features. Today, Actus is the best Volicon replacement solution on the market and one of the only companies still providing Volicon technical support. Additionally, the Actus Digital solution’s expanded feature set has led to a drastic increase in the adoption of Actus for media monitoring and quick republishing of content to social and digital media destinations. Along with the aggressive new pricing rolled out this year, Actus has firmly established itself as the industry’s reliability, capability, and value leader.
