Like most fathers, founder and CEO, Rajeev Mishra, was looking for a way to connect with his tech savvy kids and create a memorable occasion for his son’s birthday. In 2012, he set out to create the ultimate karaoke experience set to an American Idol backdrop. Although Rajeev had spent most of his career in technology, it wasn’t easy to figure out how to turn his son’s friends into singing Idols. After lots of research, he discovered the magic of green screens and rented one from a Hollywood supply company. While the output was impressive, the hardware, software, and setup was not easy.
