AmberFin, the developer of file-based media ingest, transcoding and quality control solutions for content owners, broadcasters, sports organizations and post-production houses today announced that the recently launched AmberFin Academy - a new industry resource designed to help broadcast professionals navigate the complexities of file-based workflows-- now has over two thousand subscribers worldwide and is receiving industry-wide support.
“With the accelerating pace at which our industry is evolving of late, the need for the right professional development and continuing education opportunities is more crucial than ever. Workflows, infrastructure and underpinning technologies move forward such that there seems to be no “terminal velocity”. As such, it is imperative that educational organizations such as SMPTE’s Professional Development Academy, AmberFin Academy and others continue to expand the scope and depth of services to help ensure industry engineering professionals keep pace. Education and professional development are the enabling factors to a successful future,” said Joel Welch, director of professional development at the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers.
AmberFin also announced that a brand new series of Bruce's Shorts would be going into production straight after IBC. The new series, which will be available at the end of the year, will feature new training videos and webinars reflecting latest industry trends and developments.
