JBL Fall Training Dates Announced For Worldwide VERTEC System Owners Group

Publish date:

NORTHRIDGE, CA--Responding to the worldwide acceptance and growing popularity of JBL Professional’s VERTEC line array system products, the company recently announced dates for the next series of trainings at the JBL factory in Northridge, California. Upcoming sessions are scheduled for September 23-25, October 21-23 and November 18-20. The program is appropriate for VERTEC system owners and technicians, performance-venue audio staff who work with VERTEC system products in permanent facilities, and independent system engineers who encounter VERTEC systems in touring situations.

The intensive 3-day program provides attendees with a hands-on learning experience, resulting in formal qualification of VERTEC system use. The sessions integrate line array theory, product-line applications, and practical knowledge and skill in the areas of system design, setup and optimization. Established in 2007 to provide detailed technical information for JBL’s growing worldwide system owners’ group, the program has served hundreds of registered attendees coming from varied locations such as Canada, Spain, Turkey, India, England, Singapore, France, Iceland, Japan, Switzerland, Norway, Belgium, Sweden, Venezuela, Thailand, Russia, South Africa, Tunisia, the United States and more. “Our road engineers are definitely benefiting from the integrated knowledge available in this training program, linking scientific theory to practical hands-on skills in the field,” confirmed Jon Overton, Concert Operations Manager for Audio Analysts of Colorado Springs, CO. “It has been well worth the investment in time and travel.”

Attendees are exposed to line array theory, VERTEC passive and powered system model attributes, and system power formats along with JBL’s acclaimed V4 DSP preset data, the VERTEC line array calculator and advance modeling techniques, array assembly and suspension practices, JBL DrivePack® technology and HiQnet™ System Architect™ Software, subwoofer arraying techniques and VERTEC field-application case studies. Each session includes a technical tour and listening session at a VERTEC -equipped high-profile performance venue. Lunches, course documents and software are provided along with a certificate of completion.

“A primary goal of JBL’s VERTEC Training Program is to blend theory and practice in a meaningful way for entry-level technicians and veteran system engineers alike,” notes Paul Bauman, lead course instructor and JBL’s Director of Tour Sound Product and Application Engineering. “Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to communicate about, plan the use of, and optimize JBL VERTEC line array system products.” Having earned a B.Sc. in Physics and a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from McMaster University (Canada), a Master’s Degree in Physics from the University of Waterloo (Canada) and with Ph.D. candidate studies at Chalmers University of Technology’s Department of Applied Acoustics (Sweden), Bauman has 25 years of professional audio and global touring industry experience. His professional work has included key positions at a leading international concert sound rental firm, and at respected loudspeaker system manufacturers.

VERTEC Training Program Sessions are open to the professional audio industry on a reservation basis, with preference shown to VERTEC system owners. Space is limited for Fall 2009 sessions, and attendees are advised to plan for early registration. The 2009 attendance fee for the VERTEC Training Program is U.S. $900, with discounts available for existing VERTEC system owners and multi-person registrations.
