Recently every AHECTA member received a short Member Talent survey. Thirty Seven members responded. The objective of the survey was to learn more about the professional responsibilities of our members, how long they have worked in the field, technical expertise, etc. Here’s what we found:
- Two thirds of AHECTA members have worked in the video field for more than 15 years. Only 11% less than 5 years.
- Three fourths of the members listed Cable TV as one of their chief area of responsibility. The next highest areas were IPTV (30%), programming (27%) and local origination (27%).
- Twenty two percent of the members have expertise in web development and 19% are involved in social media development. When asked what members want to see changed in our industry / profession the rate of change was prominently mentioned. Other recurring themes include: more standardization, increased programming help/sharing and more training on HD content.
