UNITIA (the United Theatre Integrators Association) announced the nomination of a new president and welcomed two new members during their annual seminar held in Paris last month.

According to the bylaws of UNITIA, the president is nominated for a period of two years. Former president Jean-Noel Fagot, president of Cine Digital Service (France), handed over the presidency to Franz Kober of Cine Project (Germany).
