“Effective June 16, all association members will have direct access to the national team of broadcast, electrical and RF engineers at Summit Technology Group,” the company said in a press release. IBA members can access the services as needed or through a subscription.
Members can view service offerings, sign up for routine service and request emergency support from within an account dashboard. An AR-based video conferencing platform allows members to connect with Summit technicians.
The announcement was made by Summit President Paul Stewart and IBA President/Executive Director Ron Stone.
Stone said the relationship will be helpful to members when “so many independents are located in areas where the days of having an on-site engineer are long gone, and even a contract engineer may be hours away.”
