Joe Roizen (1923-1989)

Viele dieser Artikel hier stammen von dem Amerikaner Joe (Joseph) Roizen. Er konnte technische Sachverhalte wirklich gut erklären und auch seine Vorträge waren mit guten Witzen und Lachern wirkungsvoll geschmückt, sodaß es eine Freude war, ihm immer wieder zuzuhören (so erzählen es die Zeitzeugen, die ihn kennen gelernt hatten).

Er kannte "sie" alle und sie kannten ihn

Durch seine Arbeit im Ampex Marketing kannte er alsbald die ganze Welt des Fernsehens mit den wichtigsten Köpfen. Dazu kamen die Macher von Montreux und der NAB und die Köpfe der großen Vereine und Foundations. Und durch seine kurzweiligen und dennoch fachlich exzellenten Vorträge kannte man ihn dann auch.

Some parts of his biography

Here are some parts of his biography written from his son Ron (Ronald) Roizen, March 25, 1989, at Dolby Theater in San Francisco.

 

In 1956, Joe Roizen moved to Palo Alto; he began work at Ampex. Joe made many contributions at Ampex, and Ampex was the place that allowed his technical creativity to blossom and also provided a worldwide set of colleagues that he later relied upon in his own company.

 

In 1959, he participated in the videotaping of the historic Nixon/Kruschev kitchen debate in Moscow. For almost a year in 1960-1961 the family moved to Europe, and lived in a rented apartment in Bern. Joe also began his professional love affair with the summer and winter Olympic games in 1960, attending them at both Rome and Seoul.

 

Roizen founded his own company Telegen in 1968. He married his second wife in Geneva in 1971. And together, his lives took on the form that would endure for the rest of his - with the world travel and internationalization of his work, the prolific authorship of journal articles, conference talks, the building of his immense mental archive of jokes, and the pleasant flow of professional awards and honors.

 

Best of all was the autonomy afforded by running his own company. Joe worked hard in the '70s, but this period found him at a professional plateau he had constructed for himself.

 

In 1975 he moved in his house at Porta Vally. New friendships grew up too - including with the Faroujas, the Orrs, and the every-bubbly Nahum Guzic.

 

Supplement of 2008 - the pictures of Joe ?

The author Gert Redlich initiated some contacts to the daughter and the son of Joe Roizen (he died in1989), but all the papers and books and pictures have been lost during the last movement. This is a great pitty but we cannot change it.
