Masterpiece Multimedia was founded by Mike Baskin in 2001. Mike has a degree in television and radio production from Ithaca College, with a concentration in video. Mike’s passion for video and TV production began in high school, where he produced, directed and edited numerous sporting events broadcasted on the TETV public access station.
Starting out in the basement of his family home, Mike quickly grew his business through his expertise in digital photography, video production and video editing. He soon established a retail store in Malvern in 2002.
In 2011, Masterpiece Multimedia began to adapt to changes in the video field. As high-definition cameras, HDTV and Blu-ray began to be more common in the home, equipment was upgraded to handle customers’ needs in HD.
In July 2013, our retail store opened in Bala Cynwyd.

After graduating from Ithaca College, Michael produced national traffic reports for Navtec and XM radio. While producing, he began freelancing as a videographer.

The idea turned into Masterpiece Multimedia.
