Gareth and I spent a couple of days at the University of Maryland this week, and the highlight was a demonstration of our gear for the theatres, universities and commercial shops in the area. The fine staff at UMD set up their Pushstick, Revolver and FX, complete with a demonstration deck track and turntable. We hosted 29 local professionals from 18 organizations. Gareth covered the history of Creative Conners, principles of automation, an overview of our products and the Spikemark interface. After a pleasant lunch where we all got a chance to mingle, Gareth wrapped up the formal presentation before letting the attendees get into the gear, write their own cues and talk about the products. It was a great time, and it’s always a treat to get out into the world and meet our current and (hopefully) future customers.
On Tuesday, Gareth did a shorter presentation for the Graduate students at UMD, before settling down with the UMD technical staff and some students and digging deep into the technical aspects of the system; software design and development, circuit board design and motion control topography.
A big thanks to Jon Shimon and Mark Rapach from UMD, who hosted the event and took time out of their busy schedule to setup their gear for the demo. Thanks guys!
