Systems Manager-Project Management
Good systems integration is like conducting a symphony. We begin with an understanding of the composer's vision - a designer's or engineer's picture of a permanently installed entertainment technology system. Our job is to make that vision come to life, pulling the various tools together and integrating them into a fully unified system. Since 1947, Barbizon has worked to simplify the complex for our customers. Whether it's basic applications, or the latest state-of-the-art tools, nobody knows more about control systems, automated and fixed rigging, architectural lighting, and, of course, theatrical, television, and entertainment lighting.
