The School of Emerging Technologies
The School of Emerging Technologies provides in-depth instruction designed to allow system designers and integrators to master additional AV technologies within a short time span. The training concentrates on new as well as evolving technologies, helping to refine digital AV system design by teaching concepts and techniques for different technologies. The student-instructor ratio is kept low to ensure that each class member receives individual attention. The School of Emerging Technologies provides instructor-led training and demonstration along with hands-on experiences in real-world scenarios to reinforce understanding of the technologies.
This training program is ideal for design engineers, system integrator installers, system integrator project managers, control system programmers, and sales professionals.
- AV Associate Certification
- General AV industry experience
This Two-Day School Consists of the Following Topics:
Designing Digital Systems That Work
The expanding growth of digital technology in the AV industry presents new challenges for the AV professional. In this course, you will learn how to design practical, working systems that incorporate the full range of digital technologies available, and achieve optimal images using video signal processors. This course also explores how to anticipate and correct for challenges, such as a display’s inability to properly manipulate aspect ratios or a display simply not recognizing incoming video rates. And, you will learn the importance of developing an EDID strategy when designing digital systems.
We will also discuss how to expand system designs to anticipate future needs and technologies. The course will provide you with the skills to troubleshoot existing system designs, building your knowledge of digital design challenges, and how to resolve them.
Design Applications for Digital Systems
As the AV industry moves ever further from analog toward the digital realm, it becomes increasingly important to understand the elements necessary to design/build effective AV systems that businesses can rely on for their communication endeavors. In this course, we will walk through a series of system designs illustrating practical, working systems that incorporate the full range of digital technologies available. Course topics include following a Statement of Work, documenting an EDID strategy, and digital system design considerations.
Advanced Fiber Optic Design Principles
Fiber optic technology offers secure, error-free delivery of content over extremely long distances. The Advanced Fiber Optic Design Principles course provides an overview of how AV signals can be transmitted using light and what is required to successfully integrate this technology into your system. This course will also enhance your ability to discuss the advantages of fiber optic technology with your customers and other AV professionals.
Evolution of Configurable Control
Time is a valuable commodity. Systems not only need to achieve connectivity requirements, but also be intuitive and easy to operate. This course will guide you on the best ways to take advantage of configurable control technology for your AV system, plus effective AV resource management. You will also learn about the available software-based tools and hardware that facilitate integration of an easy to use configurable control system.
Streaming Technologies for Your Applications
The use of streaming media is becoming more prevalent. At the end of this course, you will walk away with a better understanding of various compression standards and how they are applied in different applications. You will also gain insight about the network protocols used for streaming and the way IT managers should approach network management for these systems.
Having the proper sound reinforcement and audio reproduction systems in place are key to overcoming poor acoustics and ambient noise. In this course, you will learn about digital signal processing and the various technologies that provide professional power and sound clarity in thermally efficient and space-saving designs.
