Television

Summary:

I have spent my professional career principally working for equipment manufacturers in Broadcast, Production, and Post Production for Video and Film, now broadly described ‘media and entertainment.’ I’ve been associated with some very signficant products in the technology evolution of the industry, many of which are shown below. During this tenure, I have become a subject matter expert on video servers and archiving, with a broad background in broadcast and post production processes as well as the newer broadband enabled television technologies.
