Murrieta, CA - October 18, 2021 - DigitalGlue, trusted systems integrator and enterprise-level storage provider, has completed a 3,600 sq. ft. studio build-out for Stack’s Bowers Galleries Video Production division operating as Griffin Studios. Stack’s Bowers Galleries, established in 1933, is a world renowned, leading rare coin auction house and merchant dealer. They conduct live, internet, and specialized auctions of rare U.S. and world coins, currency, and ancient coins. Their new World Headquarters, in Costa Mesa, CA, includes a production studio, an 8-seat control room, and a large event space that can double as a secondary production studio. The new studio facility, which Stack’s Bowers Galleries entrusted to DigitalGlue to build out, not only showcases their live and online auction events, but also provides a studio rental space for multi-media productions and events in Southern California.
As the Swiss Army Knife of the industry, the DigitalGlue team carries decades of experience in studio build-outs, post-production, broadcast, and distribution services. When working closely with Stack’s Bowers Galleries and their team to finalize the design of this project, DigitalGlue was able to bring knowledge from numerous areas of expertise and decades of experience. Brian Kendrella, President of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, believes that “DigitalGlue was an invaluable partner in the creation of our broadcast studio, from design to implementation to post completion support. An important factor in choosing DigitalGlue was not only their systems integration expertise, but the support they could provide as we grew and expanded our studio offerings.”
When finalizing the design of Griffin Studios, DigitalGlue took a commonsense approach; utilizing cutting-edge technology that met Stack’s Bowers Galleries production requirements today while anticipating future needs in a way that is easy to adopt and understand. One of the most notable future-aware installations is the use of a hybrid HD and 4K baseband system rather than an IP solution. Bobby White, Engineer-in-Charge on the project, explains that “when Stack’s Bowers Galleries is ready to move from HD into 4K, this innovative hybrid system will allow them to continue to rely on their existing infrastructure instead of needing to go out, buy, and learn new technologies.” The cherry on top of DigitalGlue’s multifaceted offering is its ability to identify production studio-specific staffing needs. Not only are they designing, implementing, and overseeing the studio-build out, DigitalGlue is able to give the Stack’s Bowers Galleries team experience-backed advice on the type of employees they will need to bring on board to support the success of the in-house and rental facilities long term.
