audac-educational-platformAudac initiates interactive platform
Tuesday, 14 April 2020

Europe - One of Audac’s key values is to create a personal connection between one another and being part of something more than a business relationship. To keep realising these goals in these challenging times, Audac has launched its new education platform
Users will be able to follow various live webinars on the education platform. These interactive live experiences presented by an Audac expert offer the chance to get to know the brand and its solutions. During the webinars, viewers can use a chat function to ask questions that will be answered directly by an Audac representative in the chat.
Audac doesn’t see the live webinars as just a temporary solution to bridge these difficult times. Instead, the audio manufacturer looks at it as a long-term strategy to trigger leads and partners in a different way.
Another way to start learning is via the online training videos. These consist of various pre-recorded videos, ranging from entry-level trainings that introduce you to the products to in-depth trainings that explain all different functionalities. After completing a video series, you can test your knowledge about the subject by taking an exam. Pass all exams and you will be rewarded with a certificate.

robe-blond-trainingBlond training moments with Robe
Tuesday, 14 April 2020

South Africa - Blond Productions, based in Midrand, Johannesburg, a rental company specialising in the TV and film sector, like everyone, is grappling to survive under a national lockdown in which productions and businesses have shut down completely.
Blond’s owner and MD Christiaan Ballot has retained all his full-time staff and wants to look after everyone as best as possible, which is challenging given the scenario, involving some creative thinking to try and make “the best” out of a grave situation.
Something that immediately sprung to the minds of Ballot and Blond’s head of show lighting Ryan Lombard was to utilise the enforced ‘down’ time to engage the staff in various technical training.
“While we all wish this was over, it has presented the perfect opportunity to do all those things we never get time for around the office,” Ballot declared.
Lombard adds: “Training and education on the kit are always on our ‘To Do’ list and although it’s also always high on the agenda, as a busy company, availability for both me and the crew is a big obstacle as we are almost always out on site somewhere working on active productions.”
So, Blond has turned the lockdown into a time asset with everyone stuck at home and only connected via the internet. Lombard is presenting the lighting sessions.
The primary focus so far has been on lighting equipment and console education, and they train on a grandMA2 with the two full-time lighting department staff – Donavon Blomerus, and Lucky Lewele – each taking a grandMA OnP

 
powersoftPowersoft rolls out Deva e-training
Tuesday, 14 April 2020

Italy - Powersoft has committed to continue its online training drive with a pair of hour-long Deva webinars that will take place on Wednesday, 15 April at 14:00 (CEST) and 18:00 (CEST). The sessions will be led by Powersoft’s Deva unit sales manager, Cosimo Cecchi, and used to demonstrate all of the functionalities that make Deva “such a powerful safety device for modern towns, cities and companies”.
Cecchi will walk attendees through all of Deva’s features such as facial recognition, queue countering, and SOS and public warning messaging – all abilities that have proven the product to be eminently useful, particularly in recent weeks, as the multimedia device proved vitally important to help tackle the coronavirus pandemic in Italy.
Town and city councils such as Bergamo, Soresina in Lombardia (northern Italy), and Scandicci (Florence) originally installed Deva as their all-in-one multimedia systems, allowing them to broadcast real-time audio streaming and messaging, video surveillance, or Wi-Fi relay to inform and protect tourists and residents. Despite these myriad uses, few could have expected that the Deva systems would be pressed into service in such dire circumstances only a few months later.
With social distancing becoming an integral part of our day-to-day life Deva has proven invaluable in the areas where it has already been installed. As a completely self-sufficient, wireless, and remotely programmable system, Deva has been primarily repurposed as a health & safety and emergency device. It is now predominantly used to send

“For those of you who are directly involved in the Ravenna and/or AES67 & ST2110 world on a day-to-day basis, this webinar probably won’t provide any ground-breaking news, but may serve as a useful brush-up,” remarks Andreas Hildebrand. “However, for those who are not so familiar with the topic, it provides an excellent starting point for getting acquainted with the landscape of Audio-over-IP standards and technologies.”
Future topics will provide offerings for both AoIP initiates as well as seasoned professionals Details will be posted on the Ravenna website on an ongoing basis.
