Rancho Cordova, CA —May 21, 2008
Barco Launches Global Training and Certification Program for Digital Cinema Installers
Four-day training and certification course represents a strong commitment to customer service and support.
arco, a leading manufacturer in digital cinema and display technology, announces the launch of its global digital cinema installation certification program. For the Americas, a dedicated training facility has been specifically designed for the program in Rancho Cordova, California. EMEA training sessions will be performed in Belgium, and APAC trainings will be run in each territory where they will be adapted to each market’s specific language needs.
The four-day certification course, which is the culmination of over a year of planning and customer feedback, is designed to give digital cinema technicians the knowledge and experience needed to properly install and maintain Barco Digital Cinema Projectors. By developing a training program and a certification standard, Barco ensures that its customers can confidently choose a certified maintenance and installation provider — one who has met Barco’s exacting standards and has hands-on experience with Barco’s DP series of Digital Cinema Projectors.
“Digital cinema is a significant evolution in the entertainment industry,” said Todd Hoddick, Vice President for Digital Cinema in Barco’s Media and Entertainment Division. “And with any change of this magnitude, we need to invest time and care in the people who run the technology, ensuring that they get the most out of Barco’s solutions for their business.”
The course, he added, is an important component in an ongoing drive to deliver the company’s considerable technical know-how and support to its customers. “This training program is an explicit, important investment, designed to grow relationships and help our customers succeed in their business with Barco technology,” he said.
Erik Iversen, Technical Training Manager for Barco’s Media and Entertainment Division, agreed. “The course was developed in response to customer feedback, and with the involvement of the company’s digital cinema customers,” said Iversen.
According to Iversen, one critical need that customers repeatedly expressed was for certification that includes hands-on, real-world experience with projection equipment. The Digital Cinema Installation Certification program more than meets that need. During the course, extensive time will be spent working directly with Barco’s DP series of Digital Cinema Projectors, and each student will have the opportunity to complete at least two installations.
In addition, students receive the theoretical background needed to work with these premiere projectors. Major topics covered during the course include:
• Introduction to Digital Cinema
• Projector components
• Specifying lamps, lenses, and projectors for the environment
• Installation procedures
• Communicator software
• Upgrades, troubleshooting, and maintenance
A specially-designed training facility in Rancho Cordova, California simulates the theater environment and provides the opportunity to install lamps, optimize optics, upgrade software, and perform all the processes required for professional installation and maintenance of Barco Digital Cinema Projectors.
“By the time students complete certification,” Iversen said, “they have all the knowledge and practical experience they need to successfully install and maintain Barco Digital Cinema Projectors.”
To achieve certification, students must pass a challenging written test and successfully install a digital cinema projector. Installation certification is a pre-requisite for Barco’s upcoming and more technical digital cinema projector service and troubleshooting course.
Course instructors are Barco Field Services Engineers, who are expert at installing digital cinema systems. To ensure that students receive personalized training, class size is limited to eight (8) students.
