Control Systems Expert | Audio Visual Industry Insider

Every week, I am highlighting on some of the incredible people who are in the Audio Video Industry. As this blog is mostly about AV insiders, today we are profiling Kim Burgess .




















Here is a brief intro about Kim.
Part developer, part designer Kim Burgess is a technology integration specialist based out of Melbourne, Australia. Working with the team at Ci, he spends most of his time in the R&D lab experimenting with better ways to design and create integrated systems for modern, connected environments.

1.Describe your journey in the AV industry? How did it start?

I started off in live production as a teenager. Mixing bands (badly), rigging lights, messing with underpowered projection, and everyone’s right of passage – loading trucks. I was also introduced to software dev from a pretty early age and was always messing around with building digital things.
When I was at university I got into computational art and started realising I could combine those areas — sound, light and software. It was about the same time I realised I also needed money for food and rent and applied for a job at an integrator as a ‘control systems programmer’. I had no idea what that was, but it sounded interesting.

Please drop your questions in the comments below and i will make sure that he sees them.
