Aza Group Management specializes in broadcast engineering, IT, and productions serving Sports, Media, Politics, Education, Entertainment, Corporate and the Faith-based Industries.
Aza Group Management LLC announces its official launch. Aza Group Management LLC is a multi-faceted company focused on Broadcast Engineering services, Broadcast Information Technology (BIT) training and education, and preparing minority students for careers in broadcast engineering.
The name "Aza" is a Swahili word, that means to reflect, to think, to be strong. The Aza logo incorporates a play button for content with the "arcs" representing linear and digital "signal to signal" technologies that are continually evolving and transforming today and in the future. Aza Group Management's vision is to provide businesses with the next generation of broadcast technology services for their content strategy. Additionally, Aza Group Management seeks to shift the paradigm of the traditional broadcast engineering industry, by training people of color to pursue engineering opportunities.
Aza Group Management is partnering with but not limited to historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) to leverage next generation talent who have an interest in high-demand careers in the broadcast industry. Aza Group Management is also developing a curriculum toward certifications and creating internships and training programs to shadow experienced broadcast engineers to produce live events and original content.
Aza Group Management recently spoke with Arthur Harris a forty-eight year veteran of the television industry and former VP of CBS Sports. He shared his perspective on the lack of diversity in the broadcast industry. "As I looked around, as a Vice President of CBS Sports, I saw very few black engineers, and the question was always, why? I know we are smart enough. Maybe, what’s needed is a practice field that allows us to prepare to go into the game and perform immediately.” He went on to say, “Many were denied those opportunities due to lack of experience. But how do you acquire experience if you don’t have the opportunity? Not much has changed, but we are now at a point where those of us who were successful can reach back and help develop the next generation of executives.”
Aza Group Management LLC is proficient in project planning, process improvement, maintenance, training and development of technical facilities. Aza Group Management is a full-fledged, deployable collaborative enterprise with management, implementation, and technical skills to support and maintain broadcast and multi-platform network delivery systems. Additionally, Aza Group Management can manage all aspects of live events, content streaming, venue coordination, TV production, mobile unit development and deployment, HD-SDI, IP fiber and satellite transmissions, designing and developing studio, control room, radio, broadcast facilities and distribution systems especially at HBCUs.
