Bill Etra (Born March 27, 1947) is a live video pioneer and the co-inventor (with Steve Rutt) of the Rutt/Etra Video Synthesizer. Bill is a founding member of The Kitchen. He is currently developing (with Anton Marini) a video synthesizer plug-in that emulates the Rutt/Etra Video Synthesizer.
Mr. Etra holds several patents, including developments for 3D television and text-based (versus time-code based) editing of video.
His video art work is in the permanent collections of the Museums of Modern Art in Mexico City, Tokyo and Cologne and the Musée National d'Art Moderne at the Beauborg in Paris.
Famous quotes containing the word bill:
“We have our difficulties, true; but we are a wiser and a tougher nation than we were in 1932. Never have there been six years of such far flung internal preparedness in all of history. And this has been done without any dictators power to command, without conscription of labor or confiscation of capital, without concentration camps and without a scratch on freedom of speech, freedom of the press or the rest of the Bill of Rights.”
—Franklin D. Roosevelt (18821945)
