As a Kid, Peter Weiss. had the best time, making stick animation using a pad paper and then flipping through the stack of papers with his thumb. You could always catch him as well, with butter knife and screw driver in his hands taking apart alarm clocks to telephones. He just wanted to know what was inside that made these devices work.

One day, little Peter at the age of 7 years old, wanted to play with the Atari 2600 Video Game Console in the family room, and found out that he could not get a signal from the Atari 2600 to the TV. He looked behind the TV, and to his surprise found a spaghetti of wires and cables, that connected to more then the 2600 console. He went out to the kitchen and a grabbed a handful of rubber bands that his mother collected from the newspaper. Peter then, took a deep breath went behind the TV and had a mission to clean up all the cables. From one cable to the next cable he started, to unplug and wrapped the cable up and bundled it together with a rubber band, and then plugging the cable into the jack he pulled it out of. From that day forward, Mr. Weiss kept moving forward to seek out and learn about new challenges.

Mr. Peter Weiss has been a native of theSan Francisco Bay Area and for the past 15 years has specialized in traditional video production, working as a producer, director, cameraman and editor for independent documentaries, corporate production and Television Shows, from producing original content to mass video encoding and internet video delivery in multiple formats and bit rates.

Mr. Weiss has consulted for Fortune 500 with a proven track record focusing on cutting edge internet video deployment and delivery methods across wireless, http, and secured internet, intranet, and satellite I.P Delivery with an emphasis on user interface design and seamless interactivity.

Mr. Peter Weiss credits his success to making lots of mistakes back in the pre-2000 DOT-com days. By 2003, Mr. Weiss has been known as a leader in video compression technology as he has spoken at Streaming Media on a topic called, “Anatomy of a Live Web cast” and also at DV Expo, as well as instructing the first Video Internet class at the Expression Center for New Media and BAVC.

Mr. Weiss has consulted with top companies and organizations, including NASA, Coca-Cola, SINCITY Films and including former executives from CNN, helping their vision of creating an one million dollar architect infrastructure a Broadcast/Broadband hybrid production faculty for a early dot com called MYPRIMETIME.com.

He just recently finished a mass deployment of more than 400 Sony CCD high quality dome cameras and 16-channel secured video recorders and server build with a installed at over 35 McDonalds Restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area and archiving over 8 terabytes of archived video, which is equilivalent to about 1 year or about 8760 hours of video.

All of the archived video is not only time/date stamped, but can be accessed within 3 second of finding a the exact date and time down to the second of an event.

So, basically Mr. Peter Weiss, is always looking to find bigger video projects to execute and conquer.
