You will be broadcasting various live sports events, fault free, to the OTT and linear platforms.  Managing communications between all our global production facilities as well as direct communications with the platforms.  
 
It is a challenging, dynamic environment but also rewarding, within a mix of traditional broadcast and new media workflows.  The ability to work as a team in a busy, ‘live’ department and to adapt to changing business needs, cultures, conditions and work responsibilities is important, and in return you will get an insight into a growing area of Broadcast Technology!

  • Monitoring and quality control of all signals in and out of Transmission
  • Loading, preparation and transmission of daily playout schedules
  • Ensuring all scheduled media is available for playout each day and communication with the relevant channels if anything is missing/incorrect (eg graphics or production)
  • Provide first line support of all Transmission services and equipment
  • Ability to pre-empt all possible faults and have a plan ready if any of these faults occur

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Understanding of broadcast automation systems 
  • A good understanding of IP protocols and familiar with the technologies and processes of moving around in IP
  • Excellent communication skills
