Summit Technology Group Named Exclusive Engineering Partner of the IBA

Paul Stewart

Keego Harbor, Mich., June 15, 2021 - Today, the Independent Broadcasters Association (IBA) announced a new partnership with Summit Technology Group, making them the exclusive provider of broadcast engineering solutions to the over 1500 member stations that make up the IBA.

Effective June 16th, all association members will have direct access to the national team of broadcast, electrical, and RF engineers at Summit Technology Group. Members can view service offerings, sign up for routine service and even request emergency support all from within their account dashboard. Furthermore, with the use of an AR-based video conferencing platform, members can connect directly with Summit technicians to get help without the need to schedule on-site service.

“Our company has spent countless hours developing the systems needed to serve clients nationwide in a timely and efficient manner,” says Paul Stewart, president of Summit Technology Group. Stewart continued, “We are excited to offer this level of service to IBA member stations.”

IBA members will be able to take full advantage of the services provided by Summit Technology Group through either a subscription model, as-needed model, or emergency maintenance.

“Finding the right engineering and technical service for IBA members to tap into has been one of our top priorities.  So many independents are located in areas where the days of having an on-site engineer are long gone, and even a contract engineer may be hours away.  Having a service that can offer legitimate virtual engineering services, and relatively fast on site services when critical, will take a load of worry off the minds of many broadcasters that have run out of local solutions,” says Ron Stone, President and Executive Director of the IBA. Stone continued, “The solutions offered by Summit Technology Group could not be coming at a better time.”

IBA members can find additional information and get access to exclusive offers by visiting and logging into their member account. Interested stations can join the IBA by clicking ‘Join Now’ from the Association’s homepage.

For more information about the services offered or to enroll, contact Summit Technology Group at +1 (248) 706-6963 or email or contact the Independent Broadcasters Association directly.
