I have a background working with video, audio, and lighting systems mostly in high school and some college. Anybody other A/V techies on a.net?
Though I was never the "official" AV
guy in school, delivering and setting up stuff, I ended up as the AV
geek way back in my school years. I ran the film projectors (yes, we those when I was in school) in every class I had, the teacher always knew I could "make it go". And moved into the video and electronic era without a hitch.
And later in my work places I am now the guy they turn to to "make things work", from getting screens to come down out of the ceiling, to getting the right presentation to load onto the right screen and stop the Outlook reminders from popping up in the corner of the presentation.... yeah, I am still stuck with it. Sigh....
Odd tidbit to relate with the recent anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. We had no normal TV
at work to see what the heck was going on during the day. So I dragged out one of our video presentation setups and stripped a wire, ran into the ceiling, and then stuffed it into the "cable" port to get a signal. It wasn't a great picture but it kept people able to be informed and see what was going on on that very sad day. My boss (and others) later personally thanked me for setting it up.
