Arqiva business manager Daniel Cherowbrier has scooped this year’s Royal Television Society (RTS) Young Technologist Award.

Cherowbrier, who is a graduate of Ravensbourne College with a BSc in Broadcast Technology, was chosen to receive the award by a panel of judges chaired by digital media consultant Terry Marsh.

Marsh said: “The RTS Young Technologist of the Year recognises the potential future leaders in broadcasting and related technologies.

“The jury was impressed with Daniel’s technical know-how, drive and management skills as well as his entrepreneurial talents, and look forward to great things from him in the future.”

At Arqiva, Cherowbrier managed the Feltham multiplexing centre housing the systems for the three commercial multiplexes on Freeview.

He has recently moved to the role of business manager at Arqiva Digital Platforms, which involves bridging the divide between traditional platforms and emerging technologies.

Cherowbrier said: “I have been very lucky to be trained by some of the best engineers in the broadcasting industry and am now fortunate enough to be working with them.

“The industry as a whole is going through change at great pace, making it an exciting place to be.”

The runner up prize was presented to Vladislav Korotkov, solution design specialist at BSkyB. 

The aim of the RTS Young Technologist Award is to advance education in the science, practice, technology and art of television and its allied fields.

The winner is given the opportunity to attend IBC in September.
