Welcome to my World…

Welcome to my World…

My name is Craig. I have been involved with audio, video and computer technologies for Decades.

I was born and raised in Dayton Ohio, home of NCR, Wright Patt AFB, Lexis Nexus, SRL, UDRL and hundreds of other technology based companies. Dayton is Ohio’s Silicon Valley, but Cleveland is the BioMed Behemoth ! My next door neighbors were, to the left, an electrical engineer and to the right, a chemical engineer. Guess which one took my breath away ?

Mr. Joiner had built a television with plexiglass as the cabinet. At 9 years of age, I saw glowing orange TUBES !! Yes…Tubes…. He also had color coded and neatly aligned cable assemblies throughout the set. I took one look at this and I saw the end of the Rainbow (-:<<. I was hooked for life.

I countinued to experiment with taking speaker wires from old floor model tvs and running them into stereo systems. We were doing surround sound in 1972. In 1979 I recieved a 2 year degree in audio and video electronics while STILL in high school. The Montgomery County JVS was the best thing that ever happened to me. Not only did I get a great education in fundamental electronics, but they prepared and started me to work in my senior year as an apprentice.

My first Engineer at P/H Electronics, Duja, was patient and taught me thoroughly well.

Out of 36 students, only 3 of us got jobs after graduation. Thank God I was one. I was commited to technology for this was a GM town and we were told that there was no future in the auto plants. I can’t believe that there is still an issue with employees as to what is happening in the auto industry. They warned us of this in the 1980s. After graduation, I began work in the Commercial and Professional side of AV and that work brought me to Cleveland,Ohio in 1984.

During that period, I was introduced to the love of my life, Cleveland Ohio ! It also propelled me into the realm of High End Video and Data/Graphics projection systems. 2 of my early products were Barco and Electrohome products. These Video,Data and Graphic projectoers were priced at 10-50,000.00 and were the first wave of what is now the High Definition Video Revolution.

I have seen the technologies evolve from the corporate, education, entertainment, government and now, to the consumer markets. We have seen it all and are proud to say ” We Are Battle Hardened ” when it comes to problem solving and solution seeking.

I initially started this site as a Web-Billboard, so to speak, to make our existence known to my client base here in Cleveland Ohio. We have become increasingly aware of the need to distribute our knowledge and experience to the global hits, that we recieve from around the world.

My mission, my passion, and the only thing I want to do at this point, is to help inform YOU !!

Those who have come to www.classtorations.com are my customers, my would be customers and now the global end user looking for information and links for knowledge to utilize and maximize the emerging technologies available to us………..What a Wonderous Time to Embrace and Utilize Technology. I never thought, back in the day of original PCs and Macs, that we would have been empowered to this extent.

I welcome all of your questions, criticisms, additions of tech knowledge and particapation.

I will make it my primary goal to answer questions, link to other support sites and offer great innovative products and support to all who participate.

Once again………Welcome to my World !!!!
