PIONEERING total television station automation company, OmniBus Systems, are providing free training on transmission control systems to students at the School of Television and Broadcasting at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication in Greater London.
Hands-on training will be given to over 50 students on the technical operations pathway of the HND Professional Broadcasting course, at the OmniBus-managed BBC News 24 operation in central London. OmniBus Systems have also delivered a lecture on transmission control to over 80 students at the college.
OmniBus Systems Chairman, Glyn Powell-Evans, said: “This represents a great opportunity for the future generation of broadcasters to gain a valuable insight into state of-the art transmission technology from one of the leading players in the industry. Television is a constantly changing environment and it is important both for solutions providers like ourselves and for colleges like Ravensbourne to build and maintain close links.”
A Broadcast Industry Advisory Board formalises the lines of communication between the college and its clients. The Advisory Board provides a forum for key players in the broadcasting industries to discuss with the college both their course developments and the resource base required to support their education and training programmes.
Roger Conway, Senior Lecturer and Course Leader in HNC post-production, said: “This project gives the student an excellent insight into how the job of transmission control is carried out at the moment and the way it is likely to develop in the future, from an up-to-date and active company in the field of transmission.”
Ravensbourne College is a National Centre of Excellence for Broadcasting, reflecting their status as preferred suppliers of education and training to the independent television companies. (CD)
