Founder History:

Gaylen Nebeker learned video engineering at Skaggs Telecommunications Service in Salt Lake City and and later worked for several companies as a tape operator, editor and location engineer coloring cameras, adjusting levels and insuring the integrity of the video signals.

In 1986 he became a freelance video assist operator working for Director Peter Smillie among many others, splitting his time between Salt Lake City in Los Angeles while working on thousands of commercials. He was among the first VA ops to use color video taps on film cameras and a pioneer of digital video assist systems.

In 2000 he founded NEBTEK and began manufacturing and selling products for the video assist community. He has:

  • Led the industry in providing HD video assist systems as digital cinematography became common place and later was offered the US dealership for Qtake HD (the most Advanced Video Assist for Mac)
  • Designed complete turnkey video assist systems in use around the globe as well as the other NEBETK products found on this site
  • His expertise in HD RF technology allowed us to bring the NEBTEK Microlite HD with HD wireless video transmissions up to 1.4 miles, to the industry.
  • Provided RF tech services to many commercial projects as well as Iron Man 3, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk and the Bridge TV series
