iSquint Podcast: Episode 5 – Zeroing In On the ORB

iSquint PodcastI had a chance to spend the day with Peter Kirkup, the Product Manager for Zero 88 and the ORB lighting desk a few weeks ago. It was the same day as the #DCLighting Tweetup that Peter and I co-sponsored at Murphy’s Grand Irish Pub in Old Town Alexandria. Right before the hoards of fellow tweeters and lighting professionals showed up, I had a lovely pint with Peter and we talked a little about the ORB lighting desk.

Peter explained some of the markets that the ORB is designed for, as well as key aspects of the console. For example, its ability to speak both UK and American English. That one I think is hysterical and awesome at the same time!

I also learn a couple of things about my new friend from across the pond. In this podcast, learn a little about what the ORB console can do, along with some interesting tid bits about Mr. Kirkup himself.  Thanks again Peter for spending the day with me, doing the podcast and, of course, co-sponsoring the #DCLighting tweetup.

If you’re not already, you can follow Peter through Twitter @pkirkup. You can also follow the ORB desk @ORBDesk on Twitter as well. Want to learn more about the ORB desk? Visit Zero 88’s web site at or
