The Broadcast engineering team will be looking after host broadcast (HB) facility, and rights holder broadcasters' (RHBs) unilateral requests for the 2019 World Athletics Championships in Doha, Qatar.
Once an RHB has acquired rights from the IAAF, they need unilateral services to broadcast the World Championships (WCH) and also to personalize their programs.
The Broadcast Engineering Manager is responsible for the coordination, planning, and successful operation of the technical equipment and services that are required, both at the main stadium, and outside race venue.
The Broadcast Engineering Manager is responsible for the overall planning and coordination of all broadcast technical infrastructure at the IAAF World Championships and, during the Championship itself, for all technical installations and operations.
This is a demanding senior leadership role providing engineering and technical direction across the implementation of host broadcasting services for IAAF Productions, a joint venture between ITN Productions and IAAF. IAAF Productions is the host broadcaster for the 2019 World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
