Jigsaw24 were extremely helpful in designing our new studio layout and making sure the Resolve would ‘play nicely’ with all of the other technology that was being incorporated. At one point, we had four different engineering companies connecting things together, and my fear was that there could be a lot of finger pointing if something didn’t work properly. But Jigsaw24 were happy to play their part in the bigger picture and in fact designed some of our other cable runs and monitoring solutions.
