Turnover at Arcules

By: John Honovich, Published on Jan 24, 2019

Canon / Milestone are putting tens of millions into Arcules - their bet on the future of the VMS market (see IPVM's Arcules test report).

But over the past half year, Arcules has had a rocky road, with significant turnover including at the executive level. Is this self-proclaimed 'bold' company on the right path or has too much money too fast been a problem for the corporate spin-out?
