Derritek provided project engineering services to Engage Works who were commissioned by Sky TV to provide a fun, interactive and educational environment for schoolchildren so they can experience first-hand what it is like to work in a news-broadcasting studio.
The facility provides children the chance to play the roles of camera operator, scriptwriter, editor, presenter, director and producer, while working collaboratively in a state-of-the-art green screen studio and professional editing suite.
Our role was to refine and construct the system design and present the progress status to the client during pre-scheduled milestone tests. We supervised the technical installation and continued to support the system during the handover process.
We produced the operational and service manuals to Sky's broadcasting operations department, and also expedited the training programme for the front-of-house team responsible for running the facility.
