Broadbus Technologies, maker of DRAM-based video servers, has brought Vin Bisceglia on board as the company's new chairman and CEO.

Jeffrey Binder, Broadbus' founding CEO, is staying on as president and heading up the company's sales, marketing and business development activities.

Bisceglia most recently was chairman and CEO of NEON Communications, a provider of high-capacity optical bandwidth in New England, New York and Mid-Atlantic U.S. region. Before that, he was president and CEO of Technology Service Group Inc., a telecom equipment vendor based in Atlanta. He currently sits on the board of Ellacoya Networks, a provider of bandwidth-control equipment and software.

Broadbus, which hopes to play a prominent role as cable operators offer more and more content on-demand, has yet to announce a cable deployment. The company claims its B-1 server is capable of scaling up to 80 Gbps and of delivering 19,200 MPEG-2 streams per server.

"Broadbus has a game-changing technology in a market that is still in its early stages, and I look forward to moving rapidly to establish Broadbus as the clear market leader in the VOD sector and beyond," Bisceglia said, in a release.

But it will have to make up plenty of ground to get there, as the U.S. cable VOD server market already is dominated by three players: SeaChange International, Concurrent Computer Corp. and nCUBE Corp.
