SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- RGB Networks, the leader in network video processing, today announced that it is expanding its engineering team with the addition of Charles Corbalis as the company's new vice president of engineering. Corbalis is charged with overseeing the continued development of RGB's expanding product line, which enable cable television operators and other service providers to deliver increasingly personalized and on-demand video services.

Corbalis' extensive experience includes more than 25 years in senior engineering and business management roles. Most recently Corbalis was co-founder, president and CEO of Calient Networks, where he recruited and led a team of professionals in the development, marketing and sales of the world's largest photonic switch fabric utilizing MEMS technology. Prior to co-founding Calient, he was vice president and general manager of Cisco Systems' Multiservice Switching / WAN Business Unit, which he built to $700 million in annual sales. In this role, he worked closely with the technical and marketing leadership within many service providers such as AT&T, WorldCom, NTT and Telecom Italia, to tailor and adapt the Cisco products. Prior to its acquisition by Cisco, Corbalis was co-founder and vice president of engineering at StrataCom, Inc., which he helped grow to $300 million. Corbalis holds over sixteen patents.

"Charles is joining at the perfect time to help us accelerate our continued growth worldwide and enable our service provider customers to revolutionize television," said Jef Graham, CEO of RGB Networks.
