Summary
Over the air and cable television broadcasting industry. The field involves switchers, playback-record machines, non-linear editing, graphics creation and live keying, satellite receivers, Harris and Louth equipment (platform and panels). I have acted as Master Control Operator and Videotape Editor for commercials, promotions, and news and have had various titles but the work is the same. I have enjoyed being part of digital convergence so compression codecs and server machines are part of my experience as well. I am seeking a position as a Master Control Operator in live or taped format capacity or Digital Editor for corporate setting or broadcasting facility.
