WESTFORD, MA.—Artel Video Systems this week announced a new series of technology and solutions training programs to help broadcasters prepare as the industry transitions to IP.
The training courses are intended to hasten understanding of underlying technologies necessary in the broadcast industry to enable migration to IP and enhance productivity as IT and video workflows converge, the company said.
Artel will offer course in three areas: networking technology for video professionals, video technology courses for networking professionals and modern IP video technologies and systems.
“The migration toward IP and the convergence of video and IT ecosystems require broadcast video and audio professionals to understand networking and vice versa,” said Rafael Fonseca, vice president of product management at Artel.
The networking technology courses for video professionals are designed for engineers, technicians and operators who need to understand the functions and terms that will be used to create the next generation of video production systems. The Level 1 course addresses IP layers, technology fundamentals and networking technologies. The Level 2 course builds on that foundation and focus on more advanced IP technologies needed for IP video production, multicasting and elements of video encapsulation, Artel said.
