Event Details

Tim Jenison , NewTek

From NewTek's Site: Tim Jenison is considered the visionary force behind the desktop video revolution. Jenison founded NewTek in 1985, and led the way in the development of a series of highly successful products, including DigiView (the first video digitizer for a computer), DigiPaint, and the Amiga Video Toaster®.

Jenison learned about technology and electrical equipment from his father, who ran an electrical engineering firm. At an early age, he learned to play the piano, and his keyboard talents propelled him to leave college to join a rock band—where, of course, he continually worked on ways to improve the sound equipment.

Tim Jenison was one of the early enthusiasts for personal computers. By the late 1970s, he saw the computer as the integrating medium for his various passions: electronics, music, film and video. He decided that forming a company was the best way to fuel his endeavors to create sophisticated, yet affordable video software tools that everyone could use and enjoy.

Lately, Jenison has been working on a side project: Tim's Vermeer. It's a documentary film, directed by the performer Teller, produced by his stage partner Penn Jillette. The film focuses on Jenison's quest to duplicate the painting techniques of Johannes Vermeer. It has received rave reviews.

The Sony Pictures Classics film premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and is currently being released in theaters around the country.
