Capitol will host a trio of training sessions on Wednesday, November 9 and Thursday, November 10 as part of the Capitol Learning Institute’s ongoing program to support progressive integrators and installers.
All three sessions will be offered both days, focusing on residential and light commercial applications. Taught by the manufacturers, these sessions will be held at Capitol’s training facility in Eagan, MN.
Universal Remote Control (URC) will conduct the first session (9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., both days) focusing on how to quickly and effectively configure the company’s line of products using it’s CCP platform. Participants will learn how to create customized interfaces for their clients, enabling them to control their systems with ease. The session will also cover the Universal IR database, building macros, adding channel icons, creating zone 2 interfaces, and incorporating RF signals to work with a variety of equipment components in the client’s cabinet.
All URC models will be covered, but a special emphasis will be given to the new models featured at CEDIA, including the MX450, MX-780, MX-880, and MX980 color remotes as well as the MX5000 and MX6000 touch screen remotes. The MXW-920 water resistant remote and MX-1200 touch screen will also be discussed, along with interfacing IP devices.
The second training session (12:30 to 2:00 p.m., both days) will include a free lunch as participants learn about Panasonic’s HD video conferencing solutions. The video conferencing market is poised for significant growth as a new generation of HD systems – such as Panasonic’s VC600 and VC300 models – offer clients seamless, highly detailed workplace collaboration. The session will provide an overview of the products, target markets, and promotions designed to maximize success.
The final session (2:00 to 4:00 p.m., both days) will feature ZeeVee. The focus will be on the company’s new HDbridge line, which has dramatically lowered the cost per channel for HD encoding/modulation, and its value-added features for building multiple channel head-ends for HD video distribution.
“The Capitol Learning Institute has assembled an absolutely essential mix of in-depth training sessions for November,” said Jeff Kussard, Capitol’s director of strategic development. “Once again, we’re helping our customers identify new markets and learn the latest technologies so that they can achieve greater success in their businesses. That, along with great prices and standard-setting service, are all elements in our partnership with our customers.”
