The Broadcast & IT Support Engineer requires a wide range of technical skills necessary to perform maintenance, installation, board and/or some component level repair of broadcast and IT equipment in both studio and outside broadcast facilities in a fast-paced production environment.
In-house production support of live and recorded programming requires a thorough systems knowledge of broadcast IT infrastructure which includes:
