Graham Day joins ATG Broadcast Limited as Managing Director
Born in 1957, Graham Day studied mathematics, electrical and electronic engineering at Sheffield Hallam University before joining Granada Television, Manchester, in 1983 where he specialised in a variety of technical roles including VT editing, telecine, studio operations and maintenance. He left Granada TV to join Avid Europe, providing pre-sales and post-sales support for the EMEA region (1994-1997) before joining Emirates Media Inc (formerly Abu Dhabi TV) as Head of Technical Operations for its News Centre. Following 12 months working in Paris for Radio France International as Director of New Technologies & Information Systems, he rejoined Emirates Media Inc Group as Head of Operations.
Graham left EMI to become General Manager of Avid Middle East (Dubai) and then went on to form his own company, TriMedia Middle East, with two partners in 2004. Since then he has worked on several projects in both consulting and technical roles at Al Jazeera Network (Doha) and MBC (Dubai), and partnered vendors such as Miranda, Quantel and Omneon. His most recent consulting role has been with the Al Dafrah Group where he was responsible for developing and implementing the group's strategy and for a major HD studio project. Over the years, he has worked closely with a variety of production companies, system integrators and manufacturers in Britain and mainland Europe.
"Graham's Day's experience as an engineer and senior manager with major broadcasters, as well as with key equipment manufacturers, gives him a wide perspective of our rapidly-evolving industry," comments Danmon Systems Group Managing Director Henning Brønnum. "His detailed knowledge of the Middle East market will also be particularly useful."
"I look forward to working with the ATG Broadcast team and our DSG colleagues," Graham adds. "We will be building on ATG's solid and proven track record as a highly successful system integrator both in Britain and in global sectors, and I look forward to developing further the brand name of ATG Broadcast with my team."
