 ATLANTA, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Robert McIntyre has been named president of the Transmission Systems Division in the Broadband Communications Group of Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. (NYSE: SFA).
 McIntyre had been president of the Headend Systems Division. He succeeds David Fellows who begins this week at Continental Cablevision Inc., based in Boston, as senior vice president--engineering and technology. (See announcement from Continental issued today.)
 McIntyre will be responsible for the following product lines: digital video compression; B-MAC satellite encyption; cable television headend, distribution and fiber optic equipment. He will also be in charge of completing the acquisition of Nexus Engineering Corp. which was announced earlier this month.

 McIntyre joined Scientific-Atlanta in 1991. Previously he was with Augat, Inc. where he served as vice president and general manager of their Interconnection Products Division, a computer components business. He also served as president and CEO of Licom, Inc., a venture capital funded company which produced fiber optics telecommunications systems for the regional Bell operating companies, public utilities and private network users. In addition, McIntyre was president and CEO of Siemens Transmission Systems, a joint venture between Siemens and GTE. He has also served in management positions with GTE and the General Electric Company.
 "We regret to see Dave leave, but realize his decision was made more than six weeks ago to accept this excellent opportunity which also allows him and his wife to return to Boston and their families. We admire his selection by Continental, an already outstanding MSO that will benefit from Dave's expertise in a wide variety of communications technologies," said Jay Levergood, president of the Broadband Communications Group. "We are fortunate to have Bob, with his leadership and experience, assume Dave's responsibilities and continue the work that has made Scientific-Atlanta a market leader in fiber, distribution, headend and BMAC equipment and a leading supplier of digital video compression systems."
