Gasteck Technical Services
I have been an engineer in the television and media industry for over forty years!
 
Installing, troubleshooting and repairing a vast range of equipment from consumer to broadcast level, systems design, installation project management, bench and field repairs.
 
 
Until being made redundant in October 2020 I spent the previous 15 years as a Senior tech support engineer for a manufacturer of high-availability distributed shared storage, media asset management, and video play-out solutions for the video production industry. With worldwide customers both large & small, including film & broadcast media, academic institutions at all levels, government & military, professional sports teams, scientific researchers, and more.
  
 
User support has involved everything from assistance and training with workflow techniques among groups of video editors, to diagnosing & correcting issues with the client & server operating systems (Windows, Mac, Linux), to network troubleshooting and hardware diagnosis & repair with RAIDs, high-speed Ethernet (copper & fibre) networking, LTO tape libraries and more. Also provide assistance for customers using the company's Flow (multi-stream, multi-format real time video ingest) and Ark (flexible tape or disk base archival) systems.
  
 
Documented customer repair case notes, identified & filed bug reports seen in the field, and assisted with improving documentation & procedures.
 
I have worked on improving channels of customer communication via Zendesk CRM system, as well as Slack, Twitter, Facebook, email, and phone.
