Barco Offers New Digital Cinema Projector Certification Classes to Expand its Technical Training Program

In a continuing effort to promote technical mastery of its industry-leading DLP Cinema® projectors, Barco University’s Center of Excellence is introducing two new advanced digital cinema training certification programs.  With these additions, Barco offers the industry’s most comprehensive training and certification program for installing, operating, and servicing complete digital cinema projection systems. 
Digital cinema pioneer Barco has added two new classes, “Projector Operations and Basic Troubleshooting” and “Theater Systems Integration,” to augment its existing curriculum of installation, operations and service training programs.  Taught by highly experienced industry professionals, these classes ideally complement the Center of Excellence’s current courses: “Installation and Basic Maintenance,” and “Advanced Diagnostics and Service.”  The expanded curriculum will enable projector operators and designated theater personnel to successfully install, operate, integrate, service and troubleshoot Barco’s digital cinema projection systems. 
The new “Projector Operations and Basic Troubleshooting” course is a one-day certification class designed for theater managers, cinema owners, booth technicians, projectionists, and other key personnel that are new to digital cinema.  Students will learn about the technology behind 2D and 3D digital cinema, and receive detailed instruction on how to operate a Barco digital cinema projector, utilize the touch screen Communicator, and perform troubleshooting and basic operator maintenance tasks. 
The new “Theater Systems Integration” class is a Barco-exclusive course, providing the most in-depth instruction available in regard to the entire digital cinema workflow.  This highly advanced four-day course strongly emphasizes “hands-on” participation and the importance of computer networking in the digital cinema domain.  Topics include theater management systems, projectors, media players, 3D systems, automation systems, light and color calibration equipment, audio calibration equipment and pre-show content systems.
The founding principle of the Barco University Center of Excellence is the importance of certification.  “By expanding our curriculum, we are underscoring the fact that we offer a truly valuable portfolio of critical knowledge,” explained Scott Nipper, Training Manager for Barco North America.  “For each course, students who obtain certification have achieved an extremely high standard of competency in installing, operating, servicing, and maintaining our equipment.  Companies that employ these individuals can rest assured that they have been validated and verified as highly skilled, certified personnel, making them a valuable asset to their theater operation.”
