JBL Establishes VerTec Training Program

JBL Professional’s Paul Bauman leads the instructional curriculum for the new VerTec Training Program.

JBL Professional has established a formal training program for using the company’s VerTec line array system products. Beginning September 19, the three-day programs take place on the Harman International Business Campus in Northridge, Calif.

Attendees are offered a hands-on learning experience resulting in formal qualification of VERTEC system use. The sessions have been designed to integrate line array theory, product-line applications, and practical knowledge and skill in the areas of system design, setup and optimization.

The program covers classical line array theory; VerTec passive and powered system model attributes; system power formats and file protocols for JBL’s upcoming new 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; and VerTec field-application case studies.

Each session also includes a technical tour and listening session at a high-profile performance venue equipped with a full-scale VerTec sound system. Lunches, course documents and software are provided along with a certificate of completion.

Sessions are held monthly. To facilitate advance planning for system owners and tour sound technicians, they are pre-scheduled through November 2008. Upcoming session dates for 2007 include October 17-19 and November 14-16.

Sessions are open to the professional audio industry on a reservation basis, with preference shown to VerTec system owners. Space is limited and attendees are advised to plan for early registration. The 2007-08 attendance fee for the VerTec Training Program is U.S. $900, with discounts available for existing VerTec system owners and multiple-person registrations.
