Michael Descoteau, Masque Sound Director of Broadcast Services
An industry veteran with twenty years experience in pro audio and communications technology sales, Descoteau has assembled complex equipment packages for such leading broadcasters as: NBC, CBS, ABC, ESPN and FOX Sports. His recommendations have supported coverage of countless Olympic, NFL, Major League Baseball, NHL and other broadcasts. During his 8 year tenure with Dale Pro Audio, 3 ½ years as head of East Coast broadcast sales for SSL and in his role as director of sales for National Mobile Televisions Venue Services Group, he consulted on systems integration for an extensive list of national TV broadcast facilities and mobile trucks.
?Masque Sound has a 67-year track record as a prolific and dependable sound reinforcement company, Geoff Shearing said. ?Bringing Michael Descoteau on board to coordinate the expansion of our Broadcast Services Division sends a signal to the industry that we are committed to providing networks, cable companies and independent stations with a comprehensive equipment consultancy and support service. Michael knows the executives, the technical directors and the line people. He speaks their language and understands their budgetary concerns. His background is already making him an invaluable asset to Masque Sound and our clients.
?Masque Sounds growth plans for the broadcast arena are closely aligned with my own sense of what a business like this needs to do to increase their value to their clients, Descoteau adds. ?Technology is changing rapidly, there is a growing demand for Pro Tools, wireless mics and intercom systems and the full gamut of digital gear. We can be of great help in educating clients and in recommending highly qualified technicians, and sound designers for special events. Equipment sales and service today has grown far beyond the need to simply move a box off a shelf. We are positioned to provide in-depth consultation. Assisting clients at that level is extremely gratifying.
