About Volt Vision:
Steve French (Frenchy) is the President and Founder of Volt Vision. He is a musician who is currently playing bass with Big Leg Emma. Steve has always wanted to combine his technical engineering side with his creative musician side and Volt Vision is allowing him to do that. Volt Vision started as an electronic design services consulting company, where Frenchy obtained great experience designing aftermarket automotive pump controllers, Industrial Test Equipment, Hydrogen Control Systems in Thailand and RFID sensor systems.

Frenchy is taking all of this practical, hands-on experience and applying it to “Defining the engines of interactive art for tomorrow”. As a touring musician, Frenchy has always wanted a way to “make the lighting become an extension of the musician’s performance”. Frenchy and Volt Vision are now exploring different networked and interactive systems for lighting. Attention is being paid not only to musician applications, but also to the arts in general, interactive museum applications, home landscape and architectural lighting systems. This is an exciting time and there is a lot of opportunity as new technologies emerge everyday!!
Steve French, a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology, is an advocate in working with academic students. Volt Vision has sponsored many Engineering “Senior Design Projects” with Penn State Behrend and Gannon Universities in Erie, PA. ”It is great to inspire tomorrow’s engineers through intriguing and engaging hands-on projects”. Frenchy was also invited to Guatemala in October 2011 to speak to Electrical, Computer and Software Engineers about professional lighting systems, designing with LEDs and emerging interactive lighting systems. Frenchy is now teaching a progressive class at the Infinity Performing Arts Center which explores new forms of art with interacive colour-changing LED systems inside! Engineering meets art!!!
