backstage-academyTraining with Brompton Technology
UK - Backstage Academy has collaborated with Brompton Technology in delivery of an online masterclass to over 50 students to help them understand the importance of LED processing for video walls within live events and virtual production.
“Brompton LED processing solutions have been making regular appearances at Backstage Academy and Production Park for some time now,” says Miles Marsden, industry partnerships director at Backstage Academy. “For a company to remain at the cutting edge of such a fast-moving sector is super impressive, so to give our students the opportunity to be included on that journey was a no brainer.”
The training consisted of a short company overview delivered by Brompton director of business development, Rob Fowler, followed by a sampler from the company’s full one-day training course on the Tessera system using the streaming rack delivered by Steve Harris, technical support specialist. Finally, Adam Callaway, technical solutions manager at Brompton, took the students through some of the work the company has been doing in virtual production.
More than 50 second- and third-year students from Live Events Production degree, Live Visual Design & Production degree (LVD), and Live Event Design degree (LED-MA), as well as members of the XPLOR R&D team at Backstage joined the online session.
“Our objective for the masterclass was crystal clear - to act as a first step introduction to LED processing for those less familiar with the topic and the product range, and then to move on to the new Brompton Tessera software release and opportunities that it presents,” explains Phil Adlam, lecturer (Postgraduate Studies) at Backstage Academy.
According to Marsden, it has been good to see the impact training sessions with industry partners such as Brompton have had in bolstering their students’ skill sets. “We're extremely proud of the industry partnerships we’ve built at Backstage, working with some of the biggest names in the business,” he says. “The sessions and access to this kind of tech deliver unrivalled training opportunities. It arms our students with invaluable insights and the required skills, which puts them in the best stead for their eventual integration into the live events industry.”
