Throne into the hot seat

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

A GROUP of stu­dents took turns on the Iron Throne on a re­cent trip to Sky’s UK head­quar­ters.

The group from the BTEC Level 5 HND Diploma in Elec­tri­cal and Elec­tronic Engi­neer­ing learned about the tech­nol­ogy and pro­cesses used in de­liv­er­ing view­ing to the com­pany’s 12 mil­lion cus­tomers in the UK and Ire­land, when they vis­ited the studios in West Lon­don.

They also tried out the king’s seat in Wes­teros where civil war rages in the cult se­ries Game of Thrones.

Af­ter the visit, the stu­dents said: “The visit was mo­ti­va­tional and in­spir­ing and we learned a great deal, es­pe­cially about the live broad­cast­ing side of Sky which was very in­ter­est­ing.

“The ex­pe­ri­ence was use­ful and fun and we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the op­por­tu­nity.”

Dr Nagham Saeed, elec­tron­ics lec­turer, said: “The learn­ers re­ally en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence and learned a lot about the com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy im­ple­mented in Sky studios.”
