Thanks all. It really was (is) a labor of love. Not too many people get to create their own working environment. I consider myself one of the lucky ones to be sure.

That's right- Talkies! - Installing IP remote controlled HD PTZ cameras in fixed and flexible stations (also roadable!) so that we can work up the vids with a minimal resource requirement. I even built fully functional tally lights that integrated into my video switching prog to reduce the oh-so-common "where the hell are they looking?" that sometimes occurs with the "talent" as they speak to a camera that cares nothing about them at that moment.

@James.
How did you obtain the finish on the small monitors..? Material and applying method...
Having several cabs that are in desperate need of a protective coat of top coat. Unfortunately I do not have access to a spraying facility, so Dutatex is kind of out of the question... Being situated in EU, it is also not available. Anyone having a alternative to Duratex, which can be sourced in EU?

Tuff Cab from Blue Aran in the UK. Similar to Duratex, which can be rolled on.

Aaand, boom- After about a year and a half, it proved too difficult for the firm to sell this studio and its obvious value to their digital marketing clients (looooong story). When the owner asked me to go back on contract back in Feb 2018, I knew I was a dead man walking, so I simply bid farewell. I just couldn't stand to watch it die.

Having most of the remote equipment, I have been trying to promote and sell (sales is NOT my forte) remote live-switched recording and livestreaming for new clients but I've found myself, once again, in the position of educating on benefits (just like I did in the late 90's about the web) and it's a tough road.

Depression delayed this update. Having lost it sucks, and as an over-half-a-century dude, finding work is not easy.

Wish me luck.
