disguise New York opens collaborative work space

2016 has seen rapid growth for disguise in America, with it becoming the media server of choice for many of its high profile events.

Credits include the GRAMMYs, Seattle Opera, Beyonce’s Formation World Tour and the MTV Video Music Awards. Growth is set to continue for disguise in the USA; the New York team at disguise NY is expanding with a wealth of talent and experience, our training sessions have increased, and we’re now awaiting the anticipated opening of disguise LA, which will take place in early 2017.

The New York team have recently opened their collaborative work space, located on 343 Grand Street in Williamsburg – Brooklyn, NY. In embracing the innovative culture of disguise, the space is not being used as a ‘traditional’ office environment; instead, it aims to be a social hub to bring the East Coast’s community of disguise users together.

The team have created a relaxed, open environment, where users can come together to work on their projects with experts nearby, demo to their clients, build out racks for shows, attend training, evaluate new software releases, and socialise with other users.

Most recently, Ulla Winkler and team, visited disguise NY to work on a project for iconic fashion brand, Rag and Bone, as part of NYC Fashion week; Matthew Houstle and Robert Figueira came in to preprogram Katy Tucker’s design for the world premiere of the Ouroboros Opera Trilogy; during the VMAs, users Ben Keightley and Zach Peletz participated in an r14 evaluation session with UK-based developer Andy Briggs.

Due to a huge increase in demand, New York’s training now takes place the first week of every month. Chet Miller has come on board to head the region’s Training and Support. Chet comes from an extensive background of sound design, projections engineering and programming. Originally from New Mexico, he holds a BS in Technical Theatre from Doane College and an MFA in Production Design from Ohio University. As a technician, Chet has worked regionally and throughout NYC, in venues such as Long Wharf, The Public Theatre and New World Stages. Due to his extensive practise in using disguise, Chet brings a wealth of experience to this new role.

As we continue to grow, disguise is looking for an East Coast Technical Sales Manager. The role, is a highly technical, yet social sales role, with a primary mission of generating sales of existing disguise hardware products either directly or through channel partners as well as helping launch a number of exciting new products during 2017. Based in New York, time will be spent travelling, so the role will require a dynamic, resourceful, flexible approach.

In anticipation of opening in LA next year, we’re also looking for a West Coast Regional Sales Manager. This is a straight up sales expert role working towards NORAM sales targets for disguise hardware. Again, whilst based in the greater Los Angeles area, there is opportunity to travel to projects, industry events, and meetings with the disguise customer base.
