This coupled with a talented team of producers and engineers ensures the purity of content throughout the digital pipeline. Our mission is simple - creative content solutions delivered securely and efficiently to any screen.

Key Responsibilities

  • In general, keep the Studio operating at a high level of reliability and efficiency to ensure client deadlines are met

  • Front line technical support for Technicolor Editorial Operations which requires knowledge of video and audio systems (hardware and software) and videotape machine operation.
