The end of May saw Brompton Technology complete two well-attended, one day training courses at the new Manchester HQ of one of the UK’s market leaders in innovative visual technology, FIX8Group.
The course was led by Brompton Technical Support Specialist Sarah James and attended by both local Brompton partners and locally-based freelancers, who were taken through the fundamentals of operating the company’s state-of-the-art T1, S4, M2 and SX40 LED processors and XD data distribution unit.
With screens and rigging kindly provided by Manchester-based Brompton rental partner A to V, Sarah took the attendees through the processors’ easy-to-use interface, as well as giving them hands on experience with handy features such as ChromaTune colour correction, On Screen Colour Adjustment (OSCA), Dark Magic for colour smoothing in low brightness conditions, On screen display (OSD) and Genlock.
Neil Trenell, Creative Director and Founder of FIX8 commented: “It’s been a pleasure to host the Brompton training at our premises this week. Their philosophy of quality and high production values aligns closely with our own. We have been regular users of their system so its been great have an opportunity to learn more about it and to welcome other partners who share our interest in the system.”
“With more and more of our processors in the market there is an increasing demand for technicians and freelancers with the knowledge to get the best out of our processors so making sure people have access to high quality training is key.” adds Brompton’s Business Development Manager, Rob Fowler. “We are delighted that companies such as Fix8, which is also experiencing a period of rapid growth, are keen to host training sessions. Providing monthly training sessions at our London HQ has been very popular but we are mindful of the time it can take to reach us if you are based elsewhere. Taking our training on the road allows us to reach people who might otherwise struggle to give up the extra time for travel to and from the capital.”
All Brompton training is offered free of charge, with the open sessions designed for anyone interested in learning more about how to operate Brompton’s Tessera LED processor hardware and software.
