TechSpa Treatment [cached]

Joe Kurta, TechSpa founder, Peavey's former lead MediaMatrix instructor and systems integration specialist, is considered to be one of the industry's leading authorities on digital signal processing applications and routing systems design, programming and integration.

At only 30 years old, Kurta has a "head full of smarts," a love of his career and great sense of humor.He is also a seasoned systems integration veteran who has been involved in the design and installation of almost 200 MediaMatrix, Soundweb, LCS, AMX and Crestron systems during the course of his still-blossoming career.
"Due to TechSpa's extensive knowledge of these cutting-edge-although still very new-technologies, TechSpa has been on projects where on the first day we saved the contractor $6,000," Kurta said."TechSpa's goal is to offer tools and services that will enable and empower systems integrators to help them do their jobs more efficiently and cost-effectively."Kurta began working for Walt Disney World in Florida immediately after graduating from the University of Massachusetts in 1996 with degrees in both music performance and sound recording technology.It wasn't long after joining Disney that, Kurta said, "One day, my boss sat me down in front of a computer, gave me the MediaMatrix manual and said, ‘You need to become the expert on this.'"
Several months later, Kurta was integral in installing and programming numerous MediaMatrix systems aboard the two Disney cruise ships and numerous Disney theme parks.He continued, "I lived and breathed MediaMatrix for about a year straight, and worked on more than 50 international MediaMatrix projects for Disney.When the offer came to join Peavey as its MediaMatrix systems integration specialist, it just made sense to my career evolution."
After joining Peavey with such extensive experience, within days Kurta was also quickly involved in new product development, and in one year he gravitated into the additional role of MediaMatrix educator.During his almost 4-year tenure with Peavey Electronics, which began in 2000, Kurta was the lead instructor for both the Peavey MediaMatrix Fundamentals and Advanced classes, conducting approximately 50 courses in the U.S. and abroad, educating between 600 to 800 consultants and contractors.
After incorporating TechSpa in June 2003, Kurta continued to teach additional Peavey MediaMatrix Fundamentals and Advanced classes for almost a year utilizing the skills of outside contractors to complete TechSpa projects, including the Bellagio and Mandalay Bay Casinos, EMC Corp., and the Boston and Orange County (Florida) Convention Centers.
By June 2004, TechSpa's business had grown to the point that Kurta needed to dedicate all of his time to his burgeoning client base.He resigned his Peavey teaching consultancy, "moved into legitimate office space" and added two full-time employees.
"Systems integrators are installing many different types of overpriced control systems simply because they don't know of any other product that will work for them," observed company founder Joe Kurta.

A Taste of Florida [cached]

Joe Kurta, systems integration specialist, joined the Peavey MediaMatrix Design Services division in early 2000, after spending several years as an audio design specialist at Walt Disney World in Florida.A seasoned systems integration veteran at only 27 years old, Kurta has been a part of installing more than 100 MediaMatrix systems over the course of his career.Joining Disney directly out of college, Kurta was reluctant to learn the MediaMatrix at first."One day my boss sat me down in front of a computer, gave me the manual and said, ‘You need to become the expert on this,'" Kurta said."Several months later we installed two cruise ships and a theme park jam-packed with MediaMatrix systems.In retrospect, learning Mware was relatively intuitive, but it would have been a lot easier to enroll in the class.I lived and breathed MediaMatrix for about a year straight, so making the jump to Peavey made sense."Kurta is Peavey's primary instructor of both MediaMatrix Fundamentals and Advanced MediaMatrix classes.
