Hangin' with The Zelin

The incomparable Bob Zelin arrived at our new facility tonight. I figured we must be doing good if the first thing he said was "Wow!" when he entered the lobby. I just LOVE hanging with The Z because he's a great combination old school engineer and computer geek who is really into all the emerging technologies. That's such a rare combination because most old school engineers just want to talk about VTRs, routers and monitors and don't want to hear about all this computer driven "crap."

Bob loves the old school stuff but knows the new "crap" is what's driving our market today. He knows so much about the convergence old and new technologies and how best to take advantage of both to economically achieve the goals we've set out for our next chapter.

So now after a filling dinner and some great conversation, it's time to rest up for a VERY long weekend of wiring and installation of our entire new nerve center. Based on dinner, I can tell you we're gonna work hard and laugh even harder. I guess I'm going to have to do a revised article on Engineering the Bob Zelin Way. This is a whole step up from the last time we got together.

I can't say it enough, whether you're setting up a single suite, a couple of edit systems or an entire facility, you need to find someone like a Bob Zelin to help you along the way. I've been at this 20 years now and while I could plan out the engineering myself, why would I when someone with Bob's knowledge is so readily available. So find a good VAR, a good engineer who can help you get set up with a good stable system from the get go. And if it doesn't work, well then they have to come fix it.

They might not have the classic rock star looks as Bob, but at least they'll get you going. Man it's gonna be a fun weekend! Thank you Ron, Kathlyn and the entire Creative Cow Team for introducing me to the one and only Bob Zelin!

Registration now open: Biscardi Creative Media Open House, March 5

Well I've been blogging about the new facility for the past six months. Now I am very pleased to announce our Open House Event!

Saturday March 5th. More details to be announced as we finalize everything, but one of the exciting things I CAN tell you is that we will be featuring a showcase with many of the companies I love. You hear me talk about the Panasonic cameras, Canon 5D and lenses, the Flanders Scientific monitors, AJA Kona and converters, Maxx Digital Final Share SAN, Small Tree servers, TapeOnline’s incredible service and the folks who supply us with all our gear and more, the WH Platts company.

Well, you will be able to meet some of the folks behind these companies, see and learn about their gear and have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you want. We are setting up a product showcase, a mini tradeshow if you will, and so far, all these fine companies I’ve mentioned are scheduled to participate.

I’m so excited all of these folks are going to be there to join us in the celebration and I can't thank them enough. So you will have an opportunity to not only tour our fun new facility, you’ll get a chance to check out some new gear and services too!

Registration is now open on the Open House page of our website. Check out the details, then scroll down to the bottom of the page to register.

Thanks so much and as always we thank you very much for your support of our dreams!
