I have been working in my current position with Verizon Digital Media Services for almost a year now. It surprises me when I realize that it’s been almost a year since I was still going out on video shoots and editing video.
This past year has been a whirlwind of learning entirely new industry standard enterprise media technologies. I’ve touched on everything from high-speed transfer software like Aspera, Workflow Managers, performing CDN monitoring using industry leading log parsers and analytic software to troubleshooting server based virtualized media encoders.
There have been many other applications, techniques, technologies and experiences gained. It’s been a fun, fast and exciting time working on the Digital Media Operations team within Verizon Digital Media Services. I have very much enjoyed this work, but I have also missed being closer to the media, setting up and managing workflows and getting my hands dirty directly in the media.
I’m happy to say that soon I will be starting a job where I’ll be much closer to the hands on work again. The best part is that I’ll be staying right within Verizon. I’ll be moving a stones throw away to Reston. The position is with Verizon Content Management Services which is still under the VDMS umbrella.
More to come soon.
