Interoperability,  system performance, capacity planning and training are some of his strengths.

 

Mark is also expert in many other technologies. This includes everything from Apples to Windows, Ultra-4K HD Televisions and Dolby Atmos Surround sound systems. If we don't know how to solve your technical problem, we will soon.
