Level II Technical Support
Primary interface between the Digital Media Group(DMG) and Technical Support. On call 24\7 for problems arising with hardware and software issues in the company. Developed interactive support manual using Adobe Acrobat Professional which is media rich for technical support to troubleshoot DMG hardware and software problems. I also provide training on hardware and software related issues to Helpdesk and other interested parties within the company. Works independently of DMG and Helpdesk.

Digital Media Group
Maintain a 8TB video library, ensuring that videos transfer and are available to users in a timely manner. Prepare videos for users who need them in a different format. Additionally I prepare training material for help desk personnel on our server farm so that someone with minimal experience could go and take corrective action if one of our servers or channels had problems.
