Our head technician, Simon Woodcock has several years of experience in this industry and a sound knowledge of both screens and events. When Simon founded Big TV UK Ltd in 2003 his mission statement was to provide the highest quality equipment with full technical support and expert consultancy within the event field.
As he helped design and select the equipment used by Big TV today, he has been directly involved in building some of the world’s most complex, unique and innovative screens, which we hire within our mobile fleet. He has an excellent understanding and capability as a screen technician and ensures his knowledge and understanding of screens and the industry is passed on to everyone within Big TV so that we can apply this knowledge to the day to day processes of Project Management and in communication with our clients to ensure we’re providing the best service possible.
Joanne has been working with Big TV for 10 years and has an excellent understanding of our LED screens, on-board edit suites and AV equipment. During her time with us she has acted as lead technician and vision mixer on a number of high-profile events, mixing live multi-camera feeds to broadcast to audiences of tens of thousands on our LED screens. Joanne is responsible for managing our in-house technicians and for organising the upkeep and maintenance of our screens and vehicles. She takes pride in this position and is an invaluable member of the team.
Zach joined Big TV in 2017 and is very quickly proving himself to be a hard-working and dedicated member of the team. With a firm grasp of our AV equipment he is gaining a good knowledge of the outdoor event industry and what our clients expect from Big TV and the services we provide. Moving forward, Zach is keen to learn more about Big TV as a whole and develop his skills as a screen technician, focussing on live vision mixing and the functionality of our on-board production suites.
As Joanne helped to start Big TV, she was responsible for implementing many of the office procedures still used in our event planning process today. As the company has grown through the years, she has passed her knowledge on to the Production Team but is still regularly involved in key decision-making processes and is always on hand to offer advice when needed.
Her position as Health and Safety Officer in previous employment has been very beneficial as the H&S requirements of the Outdoor Event industry has changed. As Big TV’s Health and Safety Officer she ensures all of our H&S documentation and maintenance checks are up to date and she liaises with our external H&S advisors to make sure the company is up to date on all relevant legislation.
Joanne’s knowledge of the LED screen industry has been gained during her time working at Big TV during which she has developed a strong understanding of the capabilities of mobile LED screens and the varying quality of LEDs, she knows a good screen when she sees one! She has been a driving force in ensuring the high standards of both quality and professionalism in all aspects of Big TV.
