Brad Schiller has returned to High End Systems Inc. in Austin, TX in a new role as director of control systems development. Schiller left the company a year and a half ago to pursue freelance lighting programming.

Says Schiller, "This new opportunity will allow me to share my knowledge and experience directly with developers. By guiding the development process for all control products, including the Wholehog line, I hope to bring a more user-led approach to systems development. High End's focus on digital lighting, and the return of Richard Belliveau, demonstrates the company’s commitment to advancing the technology of automated lighting control. A great new team of control product developers has been created and I look forward to working with the team."

As a lighting programmer, Schiller understands the needs and goals of lighting productions. He will continue to program lighting for industry productions. As director of control systems development, he plans to call on many resources to ensure an industry fueled development process. Schiller believes that "a lighting controller must suit the needs of the industry, and therefore interaction with programmers and designers is paramount to the success of any control product." He continues, "I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to interact with both the industry and the developers."

"Brad will be a great complement to our new team. He has a wealth of knowledge that will help drive the Wholehog III and our future control products to a new level." says Robbie Bruce, director of software development. "I expect great things from Brad."
