The Control Room Group (CRG) celebrated its 10th birthday in June of 2011. Yes, though it’s hard to believe, the CRG is 10 years old.
From an idea sold to the “Boss” over a fruit salad to a thriving multi-million dollar business, the CRG has come a very long way in a short 10 years. From three employees to almost 50, from a single project (actually
a project and a half) the first year to over 65 projects in the year that just ended, the CRG has shown tremendous growth over the years!
The success of the CRG is directly attributable to the each and every one of people who works for the group. Without their effort and dedication, it is safe to say that there probably wouldn’t be a 10-year celebration.
A Look Back
While the CRG has changed over the last decade, so has the business environment that we work in. In fact, many of the changes we’ve seen in the CRG have been dictated by the changes in the market.
- We’ve seen display technology evolve from cubes with a giant footprint, to cubes that take up as little as 14” of floor space.
- We’ve seen video cubes lighted by incandescent bulbs with 10,000 hours (maybe) of useable life expectancy to video cubes lighted by an LED-based illumination source with 50,000+ hours!
- We’ve seen digital devices replace most analog ones, fiber replace copper, flat panel LCD displays of all sizes replace CRT based displays of all sizes and network based processors working in conjunction with an amazing variety of software suites replace simple UNIX or Windows-based slow and (much worse than slow) volatile “black boxes.”
A Special Word of ‘Thanks’
