Kristen Tetherton, President
Kristen began her career in the broadcast and production industry in 1991 after graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Mathematics. Her first roles were entry-level customer service positions with Ikegami Electronics and then Shoreline Video, an equipment dealer located in Hollywood, CA. Her ability to absorb complex information and her desire to learn about the industry’s equipment, technology, operations and workflows rapidly pushed her forward.
For five years she worked in the manufacturing and dealer sides of the business, before being promoted to Sales Engineer at Shoreline. In 1997 Shoreline closed, but Kristen quickly convinced Burst Communications, headquartered in Denver, to open an office in Newport Beach where it still operates to this day. During her time at both Shoreline and Burst, Kristen sold integration services and managed projects, including hiring freelance engineers to design, install and commission her systems. At Burst in particular, Kristen managed projects through the entire process, including closing the sale; coordinating the design between client and engineer; facilitating the ordering, purchasing, receiving and delivery of equipment to the project site; managing the technical team through installation, system testing and system training; and concluding with project close-out.
In 2002 Kristen joined the management team as the VP of Sales at TV Magic, a systems integrator in San Diego, where she managed sales staff, sold system integration, and excelled in business development. In 2008, after having her second daughter the year before, Kristen took a step back from management responsibilities at TV Magic and became an independent contractor. Over the next two years her entrepreneurial drive took hold, and soon Kristen decided to launch her own System Integration business and Triton Technology was formed. Within a year, Kristen’s future partners joined her in the new venture.
Since forming Triton Technology, some of Kristen’s favorite projects include:
- Provide design and build services for California Baptist University’s Event Center, including audio/visual systems and a sports production system
- A/V, broadcast and production system design projects for the City of Irvine, City of Costa Mesa, City of Orange, City of Escondido, and City of Palm Springs
- Design services for 4K production system for KLCS
- Television production studio and control room design-and-build for Orange Coast College and Santa Margarita Catholic High School
- Television and radio production studios and control room design for Saddleback College
Kristen lives in Southern California with her husband and two daughters. She enjoys playing golf, running and going to the beach.
Gus Allmann, Chief Technology Officer
He’s held many technical, operational and management positions within the industry, from technician to Executive VP of Engineering to Chief Technical Officer. His operational experience as a camera operator, recording engineer, producer, director, and operations VP gives him extensive and unique insight into all aspects of the television and media industry.
Gus’s background includes 19 years with the federal government, providing technical support and management of media services for eight sites around the world. He has also worked in technical, general and sales management at several southern California video integrators and dealerships. He has the business, management and engineering expertise to provide a comprehensive understanding of any and all system requirements to meet a wide range of customer needs.
In 1999, Gus co-founded systems integrator TV Magic. As Executive VP of Engineering, Gus headed the engineering efforts to create standards for design documentation, installation procedures and project processes. Within a few short years, the company grew to be an industry leader in broadcast systems design, opening offices in Burbank and New York and winning numerous industry awards along the way. He has led the Engineering team at Triton Technology since 2010.
Brian Rose, VP of Engineering
Shortly after moving to Las Vegas, Brian was hired as MIS Manager for the Talk America Radio Networks, and was later promoted to Director of Engineering. After Talk America was purchased by the IDT Corporation, Brian supervised moving the nationally syndicated network to Newark, NJ, including the transfer of programming and operations. As part of the move, he also designed and managed the construction of a new digital studio complex, which was featured in two industry-leading trade publications (Radio World and BE Radio).
Brian relocated back to his home-state of California in the early 2000s, where he began working at TV Magic as a Project Engineer. At TV Magic, Brian managed a wide range of projects, including worship center A/V and TV production, city council chamber A/V and TV production, and community center A/V projects. Some projects took him out of state, where he served as Project Engineer for the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center in New York City, designing and supervising the installation of the broadcast center, in-house IPTV system and Media Asset Management systems.
Over the past 11 years at Triton Technology, Brian has engineered a wide range of public and private projects, including houses of worship and numerous municipal systems, such as A/V, broadcast production, and master control facilities for city council spaces in Irvine, Costa Mesa, Escondido and Palm Springs.
Dan Allmann, Project Engineer
As broadcast technician at a daily news show, Dan was responsible for maintaining all equipment, including Satellite, Microwave and Fiber transmissions.
After ten years on the road working for various organizations, Dan returned to San Diego and spent three years with Fox Sports San Diego working as the engineer in charge of studio operations. Realizing broadcast systems integration as a true passion, Dan joined the same TV Magic team that brought Kristen, Gus and Brian together, and travelled the country installing and commissioning systems for Trinity Broadcast, Fox and numerous other regional networks.
Dan is currently Project Engineer for Triton Technology, where he performs a variety of duties, including CAD designs for project documentation. Dan also commissions all major components in the integrated systems and provides complete and comprehensive training services to client operators.
