Jamie Laundon has experience delivering complex broadcast technology projects spanning commercial radio and the BBC.
He received a MEng (Hons) degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Nottingham in 2002. Jamie has worked at Chrysalis Radio, Global Radio, RCS, and since 2014, has been based at BBC Technology in London.
His role as a Principal Systems Engineer at the BBC involves the design and implementation of a wide range of broadcast technology projects for the UK’s national radio networks with a diverse set of stakeholders. Each project has realised clear business benefit and delivered business change.
Jamie works hard to gain a deep understanding of project requirements, writing clear specifications and ensuring clear communication at all levels of the organisation from CTO and Finance Directors through to Procurement, Project Delivery Managers, Service and Change Management, Operations Managers, Studio Managers, Suppliers and Systems Integrators. He can write also enough C# to solve problems and automate tasks, and his code can be found running in corners of radio stations around the world.
Jamie has spoken about his experiences of Networked Audio at industry events and conferences, including Radio TechCon, BVE and AES UK. International speaking engagements with Audio Engineering Society include shows in Los Angeles, and more recently, COVID-secure AES webstreams. He also helped to organise the 2017 AES67 Interoperability Plugfest at Broadcasting House in London, hosting manufacturers and broadcasters from around the world.
