The second Benelux Sound Academy will combine an online training course with a hands-on workshop for audio professionals. Subjects will include the operation of RF equipment and the set-up/configuration of wireless systems.
Increasing pressure on UHF spectrum means that implementation of wireless system can be challenging for sound engineers. The Sennheiser Sound Academy intends to help users address these issues, as well as providing information on acoustics, RF technology and components.
During the workshop, participants will work with Sennheiser experts to expand their knowledge of antenna technology, RF technology, in-ear monitoring and more.
The online learning course will commence in September, while the workshops will be conducted on 18 and 20 October in Belgium and the Netherlands, respectively.
Marc Roodveldt, product communicator coordinator at Sennheiser Benelux, tells PSNE: “The Sennheiser Wireless mics and monitoring course is developed for sound engineers, consultants, rentals, students/trainees of professional audio and everybody who wants to master demanding RF technology. After the complete course, which consists of an eLearning module, several workshops and a small homework assignment, students should be able to apply the physical basics for interference-free wireless microphone technology, and to plan and operate wireless systems for each occasion.
“Per country we accept a maximum of about 30 participants. Registration should be done ASAP but participants can register until the beginning of September. This is mainly because of the online module that one has to finish before taking part in the workshops. However, to obtain the certificate, students are allowed to finish the online part later (in case they can’t make it).”
