The UK Royal Television Society (RTS) has named BT graduate software engineer Bobby Moss as the winner of its Young Technologist Award 2014.
Moss has worked on a number of web-based applications used to administrate the server infrastructure within BT’s TV unit, and he is currently working on a project to support the diagnostic work of BT TV engineers.
“I’m honoured to have won this award and feel very fortunate to be working with amazing people every day who are passionate about what they do and determined to make flagship products like BT Sport and YouView a success,” said Moss.
“The pace of innovation is truly breathtaking and it’s a thrilling time to be working in the TV industry. I intend to use my experience at IBC to work with fellow colleagues to generate exciting new ideas, build on our existing successes and share our passion for TV with the next generation of young technologists.”
The runner up prize, the Coffey Award for Excellence in Technology, was presented to Christopher Butler, graduate trainee broadcast engineer at the BBC.
