February 8, 2024: Blackmagic Design https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/ makes a wide variety of video production toys, from storage to streaming, cameras to converters...you get the idea. We specifically took a deep-dive into their switcher collection, and lunch was provided, too. The meeting was at Hubbard Broadcasting, 3415 University Avenue, in Saint Paul.
January 26, 2024: We regret to inform you about the passing of Gregory "Greg" Schmitke. He was one of our SBE Chapter 17 members from Moorhead, Minnesota. Greg died of a heart attack.
Despite joining us virtually, he always carried the aura of one of those people you just plain had to meet, and were better off for doing so. Robert Taylor Barker
Greg was an amateur radio operator with the call sign KE0LEE.
