Recently, the Red Lion team paid a visit to ITPro.tv studios in Gainesville, FL using a “party bus” set up by the company’s leaders Tim Broom and Don Pezet. Once there, the entire staff greeted us.
ITPro’s journey didn’t start out as flashy as they are today. To get to their current setup, they transitioned from a closet, then a warehouse, finally to their current 10,000 sqft facility. The first thing they did after moving in was to tear up the ground and re-lay the subfloor. They also laid pipes from the control center to each of the 5 “pods”/studios. This allows for the running of extra needed cabling to and from the control center. Then, they equipped each pod with soundproofing foam squares, overhead scaffolding, lighting, and cameras. The best part is that the control center can control all pods at the same time. And, all sets are built for maximum flexibility to fit the needs of their presenters.
Why this is important?
This configuration is “typical” for most production studios. However, keeping the offices on the production floor allows for massive flexibility and a “Wow this is cool!” factor that is off the charts.
What does ITPro.tv do?
ITPro services the needs of the information security community in many forms. From being the Sherpas of solid technical content to enabling the career changing transformation of all people that want to better themselves, ITPro is the place to start. Their price as of the time of writing is $570 for the year or $57 per month with no annual commitment! This pales in comparison to the SANS Training at ~$5000/course. That being said, this is not a replacement for the boot camp style of training that most look forward to (and other dread). This can be an economical option for tight budget constraints, or someone with an individual desire to learn.
ITPro’s offerings can be found in their course catalog. They have a free trial that will allow you to sign up and start viewing content. Sign up today and start changing your career.
