Declan Goulding is noted as one of Ireland’s leading video and audio solutions engineers. After graduating he started his long career in video/audio with RTE, Ireland’s National broadcaster. A ten year spell followed at the leading video post production facility Windmill Lane Pictures, during the start-up years of Ireland’s professional audio visual industry. It proved an invaluable experience.
Working at the top of the industry brought with it a discipline and understanding that would be used in future projects. Since the mid 80′s there has been an ever growing list of completed projects added to the portfolio. Early work included time in London, working on Molinare’s audio facilities, and the creation of the ﬁrst all digital facility The Mill.
After some interesting projects in Ireland, including the introduction of Broadcasting facilities to the Irish parliament, work moved farther a ﬁeld, to the Far East. In Hong Kong, work was carried out for Star TV. ABN. and Video Post Manila, among others. After this the international as well as the domestic dimension blossomed and completed works were carried out in Eastern Europe, Northern Africa and England.
The experience gained in overseeing the completion of many major contracts is now available and offered to current clients.
