Engr. Ramos started in TV broadcast engineering almost a year after he passed the board exam of November 1998. He joined ABS-CBN in Quezon City as a Trainee in Studio / OB Van CCU Operations and after 6 months, he was hired as Talent Employee for the same department. He worked as CCU Man / Video Engineer for live and recorded programs of ABS-CBN in both studio and remote locations. After 2 years, he moved to the TOC – MCR department of the company as a Trainee to further enhance his knowledge in broadcast system.
In 2002, he went abroad and had his first stretch of being an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) in the city of Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia where he worked for Sony Projects Division, Al Faisaliah Group for 6 years as a Broadcast Engineer and eventually being promoted to Project Engineer. He was one of the key players in the multi-million, multi-national project of upgrading Riyadh TV Center, OB Vans and alike.
In October 2008, he decided to accept the offer of Arab Media Group, a Media Company based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Then in April of 2009, he was hired by Al Dafrah TV Station and worked there for more than a year before he moved to MBC Group in September 2010.
Engr. Ramos started as a Broadcast Engineer in MBC, supporting the live programs of 24/7 Al Arabiya News Channel. In February 2013, he was promoted as a Senior Broadcast Engineer proving his in-depth experience and invaluable contribution to the company. With this, he received the “Top Achiever” Award from their Directorate of Technical Operations for his professionalism and dedication in handling various in-house projects of MBZ Group FZ, LLC. Two of their completed projects have been selected back-to-back “Studio of the Year” from amongst the high-end broadcast projects in the region. It was a proud moment for him when one of the projects – Al Hadath Studio, was launched on-air since majority of the key players on the said project were Filipinos from different trades of cabling, lighting, design and system engineering.
The latest project that Engr. Ramos handled was the business continuity facility in Dubai Studio City. It is made up of three huge studios, two production control rooms, two audio control rooms, ten non-linear editing rooms and a Master Control Room. This continuity facility, 10 km apart, is connected to their Head Office in Dubai Media City via fiber links. The deployment of massive LED video walls was the first of its kind in the region which was the challenge presented to him. They have successfully launched the facility last year and from then on, it was the talk-of-the-town in the broadcast community.
IECEP-UAE is proud and thankful for Engr. Ramos’ selfless act of sharing his time and technical knowledge in supporting the continuous professional development to his fellow engineers especially to the members.
