The Television VT Operator

The job of the VT (video tape) operator is to record and playback video material on a tape machine, disk recorder or computer-based system. This can be in a live production setting or post-production editing session.

In some situations this job can be as easy as pressing record, rewind and play. In other situations it can be very demanding, requiring a high level of coordination, fast hands and quick thinking.

The VT operator is answerable to the director or (in larger productions) the VT director.
