As a Broadcast Engineer with 15 years of Broadcast & IT Industrial Experience, I apply with keenness for this Career Opportunity.
I recently worked as a Freelance IT & Broadcasting Consultant for a Large Scaled Media Network which is operating Multiple TV Channels and Press Based in Sri Lanka. The channels are delivered to the viewers using cable networks. I lead the Channel Distribution Upgrading Project of converting Analog to Digital Platform by planning, designing, installing and testing the system and setting up a team of Engineers and technicians for consistent operation.
I have a long work history with IBC Tamil Media, where I held Project Engineer position while Rebranding and Building a Media Centre Facility with Latest Technologies in South Ruislip. I was working along with multiple System Integrators, vendors, Engineers and business partners on constructing VR TV Studios, 2 Radio Studios, Edit Suites, MCR, CAR, News Studios and many facilities. This opportunity brushed my inner talents and knowledge of bringing a Multifunctional Media Production House to meet up the vision of the investors. Here I had a learning curve by sharing the knowledge of various IT and Broadcasting Installation Engineers and Technicians.
Once the channels were officially launched after the building project, I was promoted as Head of Engineering and Technology in the same Facility. I was directing and coordinating my teammates and support engineers. I was ensuring the consistency of the Channel flow by handling diagnostics, troubleshooting and maintenance. Initially, Main TV Channel was broadcasted FTA via Satellite and 2 Radio Channels were Broadcasted FTA via Satellite, DAB and Online. I am proud to mention that I was a part of the gradual growth of the Media Company by adding 5 more play-out facilities for Sub TV channels and delivered through IP TV platforms and via online. I was doing many Multi Camera Live OB events during my career.
In brief, I have previous experiences with various organisations and channels which are mentioned well in my resume. Some of them are PBX, CCTV, IP NETWORKS, SERVERs, Studio Devices, Audio Devices Etc..
I am a London Middlesex University Alumni with a BSc. (Hons) Information Technology with Business Information System. I am a good team player and have a good relationship with my previous employers as I was loyal and dedicated to my Profession with the passion to prove myself with newer things.
I believe that by joining your company and workforce, I will have good career growth and experience in the mainstream Media / Broadcast Industry.
