More than 1,000 enroll for StuderBroadcastAcademy.com
Ten months after its launch, HARMAN’s Studer has announced that StuderBroadcastAcademy.com, the online version of its Studer Broadcast Academy training course, has amassed more than 1,000 participants across 90 countries.
A total of 170 engineers have completed the entire course and are now factory-certified. Of these 170 engineers, over 85% have opted to be listed on the Studer website in a searchable engineer database (used by companies and productions looking to employ Studer Vista engineers).
StuderBroadcastAcademy.com is an interactive online course for engineers to learn how to operate Studer’s Vista Series digital mixing consoles. The course consists of a series of modules, which participants must pass 100 percent to officially certify as a Studer Vista Operator. The course is structured in an interactive format and students can download the Virtual Vista software that gives them a graphic, active representation of a Vista console. Virtual Vista can also be used for offline console configuration and online remote control of Vista mixing consoles. Video segments, system and technical diagrams, a dictionary of terms and other resources round out the programme.
“We launched StuderBroadcastAcademy.com in partnership with CRAS (Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences) in August 2013 and the program’s popularity has exceeded our high expectations,” said Katy Templeman-Holmes, associate director, Recording & Broadcast, HARMAN Professional. “But we’re not stopping now. Later this year, we will introduce a new SBA module that will dig deeper into our Snapshots features!”
