Ideal Systems today announces the great success of its participation in ITE internship program for broadcast engineers. Ideal Systems took a number of this year’s interns who are studying for their Higher Nitec in Broadcast & Media Technology at ITE (Institute of Technical Education in Singapore) for a six-month work placement program.

The students obtained a wide variety of real world experience working with Ideal Systems team on a number of projects from the building of new multi-channel broadcast facilities for Sony Pictures Entertainment in Singapore to building new Broadcast News facilities for Metro TV in Jakarta and also managing to get a deep dive into the new IP broadcast technologies at the Broadcast IP Inter-OP Lab at Broadcast Asia exhibition in Singapore, where they were involved right from the booth and systems build up to manning the various edit and operator stations during the live broadcast interviews all through the show.

“We were delighted to be part of the program and it was great working with the ITE students. The broadcast technology landscape is changing very quickly so being involved in real world new system builds and deliveries really gives the students a good feel for what is happening in their career space whilst giving them invaluable real world experience with real broadcasters and future employers.” Fintan Mc Kiernan, CEO Ideal Systems Singapore
