Team Detroit Ad Agency Calls on Vintage King Post for Major UpgradeVK Tech Shop Preps Install for Minimal Downtime (August 27, 2013)
With a roster of elite clients and work regularly reaching the global market, they wanted a newer, more powerful post-production setup, equipped to help them serve their clients even more efficiently and effectively.
After bringing in a number of vendors, Team Detroit elected to partner with Vintage King Audio's VK Post team, a seasoned group of audio professionals specializing in serving the post and broadcast market.

"My passion is gear and it was obvious when we talked to Vintage King that that's where their passion is," says Dan Verlinde, Team Detroit Senior Audio Engineer. "It's not really about the sale and making the commission, it's about the gear, and how you're going to use it and integrate it," notes Verlinde.
After a series of consultations and a careful gear-selection process, Team Detroit scheduled an installation date and set aside a week for the install, just in case. The VK Post team was able to exceed expectations, getting the entire system up and running in just under three days. Much of the time savings came from extensive preparation in the VK Tech Shop, Vintage King's on-site service center. To facilitate the installation, custom patchbays were prepared in advance and gear was pre-configured as much as possible, then meticulously packaged for shipping.
"Going into the installation, we recognized that Team Detroit has a roster of high-profile clients and we wanted to make sure they could get right back into their workflow, right away," adds Schneider. "We had done so much planning and thinking through on the back end that the install was seamless, allowing the Team Detroit crew to fire up a session and get working on billable projects right after we left."
Team Detroit appreciates the attention to detail the VK Post team paid throughout each step of their consultation and custom installation. In part, it was that above-and-beyond approach that brought Team Detroit to VK Post in the first place. "We needed support from a company that would give us minimal down time and be there when we had issues," adds Dean Dolce, Team Detroit Broadcast Systems Engineer.
Vintage King's VK Post division regularly serves the specialized needs of broadcast and post-production clients across the United States and the world. Capable of handling turnkey installations, such as the work performed for Team Detroit, VK Post, in conjunction with Vintage King's robust service center and distribution network, also handles the day-to-day equipment needs of large and small commercial facilities.
