Videotapes are inherently limited by the physical nature of the format. Their magnetic signal and physical integrity deteriorates over time and multiple viewings, and they support a lower resolution than what is currently standard. Not to mention that the vast majority of VHS players have been either thrown out or repurposed into panini toasters. Network Sound and Video overcomes the limits of video limits by transferring tapes onto DVDs, which enjoy a much longer shelf life. This service is just a facet of their expansive media knowledge, which also includes video production, disc duplication, and film restoration. As editors, the shop's staffers also specialize in the creation of stylish videos for slide shows, family histories, and sports highlights.
Most people don't get business calls from Walt Disney World. But, two decades ago, Glass Addicts owner Denise Hurley received just that—along with a request to design and build Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa's carousel horse. In the years since, orders have continued to pour in from Kohl's, The Mirage hotel, and other businesses and collectors seeking Hurley's Tiffany-style stained-glass and art-glass designs. Hurley also builds masterpieces on a smaller scale, restoring and repairing customers’ already existing pieces and building custom panes for homes and offices. Intent on sharing her talent with others, Hurley teaches classes on formats ranging from mosaic picture frames to stepping stones to dentists' mirrors overlaid with your favorite Metallica album covers. No previous experience is necessary, as classes accommodate beginners and master artists alike. Sessions take place in spacious, well-lit rooms filled with materials, and students and customers can study from books inspired by Hurley's designs or observe the installment skills of her professional staff.
