Alameda, CA (January 8, 2020)—December saw students in the Audio Engineering Technology at the Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business, Belmont University in Nashville, TN get hands-on training from Clear-Com, learning best practices for use of intercom systems in live performance applications.
Benjamin Poff, instructor for the Audio Engineering Technology (AET) degree program, approached the company for training that would help students to learn more about modern-day intercom systems, should they choose a career in live performance.
After talking with Poff, Rom Rosenblum, applications engineer at Clear-Com and an audio veteran, devised a seminar-style session on the general history and concept of intercom, followed by deep-dive, hands-on sessions on beltpacks, base stations, panels and more from Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak II Digital Wireless Intercom, LQ Series Interfaces and HelixNet Digital Network Partyline Systems.
Rom spoke about the technical aspects of Clear-Com solutions, and he also covered key aspects of navigating the industry in the real world to enhance earnings and career prospects.
“The students were blown away by Rom’s presentation and were able to take a lot of valuable information from his expertise with the systems. As faculty, we also learned a few things ourselves!” said Poff. “I’m really impressed that an industry-leading company like Clear-Com would provide this kind of customized learning experience to help the next generation of audio engineers reach their potential.”
Mike Rucker, sales director, Americas, Clear-Com, said, “Clear-Com is fully committed to investing in the future, not only with our products and technology but also in the future of the industry itself. In addition to our outstanding regular training programs, we are keen to work with higher education establishments to give students access to in-depth product training as well as sharing the invaluable industry expertise of our experienced staff.”
