This IPP lecture was a bit different than the others as it was with James Uren, one of our Broadcast Tech course Leaders. This made this session much more interesting and much more relevant to our corse and how the principles, we have been taught in the other IPP sessions, are used in a number of Broadcast Engineering environments.
Presentation and Communication skills both, crucial for this industry, if your not a clear communicator or team worker you wont get much work in this industry. Communication is more important than technical ability in most roles, if you cannot clearly communicate the problem to another team worker, they cannot assist you through the situation.
Presentations skills are also key to getting work, as how you present yourself to a future employer is critical, as they say first impressions last. Presentations skills are also key for Producers and Operations students, when pitching there ideas to networks, and financiers.
This is my first real blog post for IPP / Fluxity and its on Electronics and TV Systems and Signals. This is still right at the start of the course for us, so we are starting right at the beginning with the Electronics and Tv Systems and Signals.
Starting with the basics over the last few lectures, we looked into the fundamentals of Electronics, this included:
- The Atom
Most of this I had covered previously in at A Level, but these lectures stood as a handy recap. Over these lectures we also covered Resistance, Power, and Capacitance, all at a fundamental level, to provide the building blocks for later lectures.
Tv Systems & Signals
Tv Systems and Signals is a completely new unit for most of us on the course. with these first couple of lectures covering the very basics, starting with the Broadcast Chain and The EM Spectrum. Both topics although basic provided me with a huge insight into the broadcast world and how its not as simple as just watching TV makes it seem. This small insight into the industry has spurred me on to find out as much as I can about being a Broadcast Engineer
Welcome to my new blog, this blog will hopefully contain daily reports of what I’m currently doing at Uni and as a Freelancer. This blog is not only a good record of what I have been learning over the next few months, it will also highlight some key projects that I’ve been working on.
Blog posts will be all categorized under news, with them also being categorized by Project / Lecture. This will not only keep the blog organized, it will also help me when I’m referencing back to it later for my IPP (Industry and Professional Practice) Report, which this will forma a huge part of.
IPP is a unit on my Broadcast Technology Degree, that is designed to teach us about how the industry works, as well as some basic transferable skills including Team Working and CV Writing. As part of the unit we have to create a Reflective Blog, this blog should be created on the Maharh Blogging tool, but as this is not currently functional, I have decided to create this one on my website. At a later date, I will transfer the content over to the required software.
