Private: RAVP’s History

How It Started – Where We’re Headed

RAVP has been in business since 1976. I started purchasing equipment with paychecks from my job as an electrician, a job I held for 15 years. I videotaped pageants, festivals, theater productions, weddings, fashion shows, and radio and television promotions.

I soon realized I needed to find an outlet to show all these videos, so I contacted TV stations without any luck. But I didn’t give up. When cable came to Phoenix in 1980, I negotiated with Store Cable/Camelback Cable to lease channel 150 in Glendale and 32 in Phoenix. For the next four years, my videos appeared on these channels along with programming that I contracted from Black Entertainment Television (BET). I produced four hours of content to start then, when BET went to eight hours, RAVP went to six hours.

RAVP began this venture into cable TV on June 1, 1981 airing programs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our programming consisted of local and national prerecorded live shows: Community Calendars, News, Sports, Movies, Cartoons, Music Videos, Gospel programs, Soap Operas, Family hours, Cooking, Exercise shows, Beauty and Health tips, Soul Tran and Music Specials till 1985.

RAVP step into working on films like: Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Just one of the Guy’s, Midnight Run, Raising Arizona and Waiting to Exhale.

In 2007 I started working at Thunderbird School of Global Management. Over my time there I was Media Manager, Producer and Technical Engineer over production and technical direction for distant learning, responsible for maintenance and control of satellite up-link equipment for live broadcast to fourteen Latin American. Edited multiple projects for course facilitators, students, and staff using Final Cut Pro, converting to all formats (.wmv, .mov, .rm, .flv).

In 2012 I was called to help Audio Video Resources rental department as the business sales. I developed and managed the Events and Rental Services by AVR department and increased sales for events and rentals by 40% in 5 years, managed a team of five A/V Technicians.

In 2017 I joined adScope Media, developing more on there events and rental and learning how to program LED video walls (Linsn, NovaStar). Managed in-house and freelance crews, responsible for troubleshooting equipment issues on job sites and managed warehouse inventory.

Today Rideau Audio & Video Productions, LLC., has come full circle back to a stronger talented company.

RAVP has expanded it’s Events and Rental management to organize productions by providing a wide range talent and equipment for live broadcast streaming, expertise in AV stage operations and managing freelance crews,

We are excited to help our clients stage events that will be enjoyed and remembered. It’s just another way RAVP is contributing to our community.
