Ozsports Radio is looking for a volunteer sound engineer who is available on Saturday afternoons at various grounds around Adelaide and enjoys Aussie Rules.
Ozsports Radio is possibly covering the SANFL APM Inclusive League matches on Saturday afternoons.
Volunteers who supply an expression of interest must have access or own appropriate audio equipment suited to broadcasting Aussie Rules Matches via online.
Role of the Sound Engineer
- Setting up and operating equipment and transmission links during outside broadcasts
- Interpreting and implementing instructions and requests from producers
- Communicating effectively with members of the team and other colleagues
- Minimising loss of service when equipment fails by quickly identifying and implementing alternative methods of service provision
- Monitor and log outgoing signals and operate transmitters; set up, adjust, service, and repair electronic broadcasting equipment; and regulate fidelity, brightness, contrast, volume, and sound quality of outside Broadcasts (OB’s).
Broadcast and sound engineering technicians and radio operators generally work indoors in pleasant surroundings. However, those who broadcast news and other programs from locations outside the studio may work outdoors in all types of weather and those setting up equipment do heavy lifting.
Other Skills Required (Other qualifications)
Broadcast and sound engineering technicians and radio operators need skills in information technology and electronics since most recording, editing, and broadcasting are done on computers. Prospective technicians must have manual dexterity and an aptitude for working with electrical, electronic, and mechanical systems and equipment.
