Studer continues UK Broadcast Academy training sessions

Harman’s Studer is continuing its Broadcast Academy programme with training sessions for its Vista and OnAir digital mixing consoles.

The free, half-day seminars will be held on May 10th, July 12th and September 27th at the Soundcraft Studer facility in Potters Bar, UK. The sessions will be aimed principally at freelance engineers and in-house engineers with little or no experience with Vista or OnAir consoles.

Ex-BBC sound engineer Micky Curling will be leading the sessions, providing an opportunity for attendees to gain practical instruction and hands-on experience with the various consoles installed at the facility. In order to ensure that everyone has sufficient time to learn the capabilities of the consoles, the sessions will be limited to no more than six people per session.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided, while participants will also be given a tour of the production facilities where Studer consoles are manufactured, and visit the company’s on-site museum that houses.

The dates and times for the seminars are as follows:

May 10, 2012 – Introduction to Vista (morning session)
May 10, 2012 – Introduction to OnAir (afternoon session)
July 12, 2012 – Introduction to Vista (morning session)
July 12, 2012 – Introduction to OnAir (afternoon session)
September 27, 2012 – Introduction to Vista (morning session)
September 27, 2012 – Introduction to OnAir (afternoon session)

Studer will also be offering full-day training on the Vista series consoles in the near future. Two levels are currently planned:

Vista Foundation: includes a product overview, use of the Vistonics user interface and general operation, connection with third-party networks including OPTOCORE and Aviom, and integration with Riedel’s RockNet and MediaNet.

Vista Intermediate: will cover more advanced topics including detailed examination of the console’s DSP functions, I/O formats, Virtual Vista remote control and system redundancy.
