Advertiser Shout-Out: Mike Zinman and ZinmanCo

When I have advertisers, I like to give them a shout-out once a month.  This month’s advertiser is Mike Zinman of ZinmanCo – the guy who has brought a lot of great software to the market, starting way, way back with AutoBlock for AutoCAD.

ZinmanCo has produced several very good pieces of iPhone software lately – iSwitch and iSwitch DMX are very fantastic dipswitch calculators, and when you’re sitting in a scissor lift trying to calculate dipswitch addresses on the back of a Cyberlight, are well worth five bucks.  Portfolio, one of Mike’s newest creations, is an iPhone based portfolio that helps you carry your design life on your iPhone.  TCP/IP Remote is a good remote connectivity program.  GelCalc helps you calculate sheet, cut, and size calculations for a ton of fixtures, and PocketLD is a beam calculator, intensity calculator, and desk reference rolled into one.  Mike Zinman’s work is great.  Go check out his line at iTunes!
