This may come as a suprise, but my name ain't Moe. I
do however respond to that name. Much to my dismay, I
also do not run a BBQ shop.

Only those unlucky enough to sit through my long diatribes
at CEDIA expo dinners and IP party's know the reason it
replaced my handle here and elsewhere 3 or 4 years ago
from a previous and undisclosed screen name.


I own a CI company in a well known Ski area location in
the Colorado Rockies.


I know it's not much of an introduction, but you know,
baby steps. :-)


Sitting threw you long diatribes aren't so bad when you are buying the beer... lol
Can't be any worse than me.

Rick... but not the first.
(inside joke based on another famous Rick from my hometown)

Anyway, I am many things to very few people.

1) Occasional arch-nemesis to Mr. Stanley...

2) Administrator at IntegrationPros

3) Holder of CI titles... (Cedia Professional Designer, AMX ACE, RTI Level I-III, Vantage InFusion, Lutron Ra and HWI, Draper Roller Shades certified, former IASCA Judge, :) etc., etc....)

4) Speaker guy

5) Part-time a*hole (although I turned in my resignation to that title)

So I can say something mean to you here and I'm okay, but if I did it over at IP you'd wipe me out?

Poor Stanley..he has an arch-nemesis..

Don't you think he has enough to think about like not hitting pipes inside the walls when he's doing a retro than what his arch-nemesis is planning to do to him?

The first name is Joe. Im originally from a little lake
in Michigan. Our South Bay beach community is one of
a kind; I hope that I never have to leave. I cannot stand
the cold, but I have a season pass for Mammoth Mountain.
(snowboarder) I have been partially living there during
my lack of free time Nov-Mar for the last few years.

I started my company 5 years ago, I've always been intrigued
by anything that uses power. I left an electro-optical
systems engineering job where I was aiding to the destruction/protection
of the world. Now I make people happy rather than blowing
them up, I like that; a lot.


I'm extremely honest and I love most of the necessary
tasks to keep my company running and clients happy. I
wouldn't even bill people if I didn't have to eat. I've
only encountered one pair of rotten eggs, it's too bad
that I know there will be more.


Learning is more fun than doing, that's probably why I
enjoy hanging out here so much. I'm an information junkie
that is probably addicted to the internet; I check this
site and many others each day attempting to stay on top
of the latest gadget news. I have enough energy for 36
hour days, but I force myself to be in bed by 1am. It's
bed time!

Hey neighbor, I have had a season pass to Mammoth for some 10 years now. There is no other place like it. We gotta get a drink at Whiskey Creek sometime next season...
I already have next years pass :)

Joe, I'm from San Antonio. Never know who to recommend
down there when friends/family request integration. Are
you good?

I work for one of the only games in town, big store on 281. I like to think I'm good. We deal more with A/V and don't really dab is the total integration like security, HVAC, etc. but we have done some before.

Hi,
My name is Mark and I am a CI from the Washington, DC area. Got in this business as an offshoot from a residental construction business about 4 years ago.

We use alot of different brands in our projects. All of the major display companies except Sony (no margin) along with Marantz, Denon, HK, Parasound, Niles, and alittle B&K.

For Speakers we use Polk Audio, Energy, Mirage, Totem Accoustic, KEF, Velodyne, some Atlantic Technology, Niles, etc

For projectors we use Infocus, JVC Pro, Mitsubishi, Optoma, and Panasonic

For screens we use, Dalite and Draper

Our jobs consist of mainly theaters with a couple of zones of audio, but we do the occasional whole house both new construction and retro fit.

I have been programming remotes for a short time (maybe about 6 months) before that our programmer handled all of the programing. RTI and Phillips are our usual suspects with RTI in the lead by quite a bit.

Thanks for having me.

Hello all! I'm new to the forum. My name's Chris & I'm in Greensboro, NC.
I have an American Studies degree (think history explained through interpretation of literature)...yawn...from UNC. Go Heels! Fresh out of college, I knew had no interest in going into a field that would relate to my degree, so I got a job unloading trucks at the local Circuit City. I definitely started at the bottom. ("No ma'am, this 36" Trinitron will not fit in your CR-X") Then I delivered TVs for NOW! AudioVideo, a small chain here in NC. NOW! was bought by Tweeter, and I became a CI apprentice. I learned a lot, but was hard-headed about being "Tweeterized", and a little over 2 years ago joined a small CI company where my official title might include installation manager, lead installer, project designer/manager, inventory control supervisor, etc. We mainly use Niles, Polk, Velodyne, Yamaha, Sony (TVs), Samsung, & C-4. As for remotes, we (I) do lots of Universal Remotes, mainly MX-850's, but I'm the proud new owner of an MX-980! Thanks for having me!
