Summit Technology Group said it has a new partnership with the Independent Broadcasters Association in which it can provide virtual or on-site broadcast engineering services to members of IBA.
“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.”
