As Director for Advanced Technology at the Time Inc. Magazine Company, Paul Schnitzler led the development of a video-based bindery line monitoring system. He organized the team, arranged for manufacture, wrote the training manuals, and directed the installation of the complete systems. All for one-third the cost of any commercial system.

As VP Engineering at Coastcom, Paul took a stagnant multiplexer development project, focused the team and brought the product to delivery. By deferring all non-essential features to version 2, the company was able to quickly complete the design and move it to production.

As Head, Broadcast System Research for RCA Laboratories, he built a multidiscipline team to solve the problem of using CCDs in a broadcast television camera. The project saved the company two months in a one year project and earned RCA an Emmy for technical excellence.
