Eric Siegel

Eric Siegel had built his own TV set by the age of fourteen. Siegel went on to become an important technical pioneer in video; he designed and built the Siegel Colorizer in 1968, and a synthesizer in 1970. His first videotapes fused image-processing, synthesis and colorizing with music. In 1972 Siegel travelled to India, where he produced The Hindustan Tapes, a series on Indian culture.

Siegel was born in 1944. He currently designs and manufactures imaging hardware in San Diego, California.
