According to a statement, Gary Sutton, a member of the company’s board of directors has been named interim CEO. DeAngelis will remain on the company’s board.

"Pete has been here from the very beginning," said IQinVision CFO Charles Chestnutt. "He was the driving force taking us from nothing to positioning us as a leader in the megapixel IP camera space.
