UK: The Institute of Broadcast Sound is to hold a one-day training event at the National Film and Television School (NFTS, pictured) in Beaconsfield, UK. The course is aimed at sound engineers who want to get to grips with the basics of radio mics, transmitters, receivers, mic placement and techniques, as well as those wishing to learn more about broadcast communications.
The day will be split into two sections covering each area and is oriented towards those who are new/new-ish to the industry.
Scheduled for 16 May, the course will take place from 0930 to 1800 and will include lunch. A bar will be open after the session is complete to allow delegates to discuss the various arising issues.
IBS vice-president John L. Andrews says that if the session is successful, the organisation expects to run other courses aimed at 'entry-level' and less experienced sound engineers.
"This is a rare opportunity to hear some of the top experts in broadcast sound talking about the daily problems they encounter in studio and location work, and discussing how to overcome them," Andrews tells PSN-e. "It's also a great chance to meet others in the industry and to make new contacts."
The event is now listed on the Institute's website (link below), with booking information to follow shortly.
