    Amplify introduces the next stage in console training and skills development.

    Amplify is a 2-day intensive training session that is aimed at improving your workflow, teaching new skills and helping you to become a faster, more proficient programmer.

    Set in a fast-paced environment, Amplify aims to simulate a real-world programming experience giving you the opportunity to test your current skills and develop new ones as you go. It builds on an expected basic knowledge of the Eos family, taking core skills and guiding you through applying them into daily programming practices.

    What is involved?

    You will be required to prepare a show file ahead of the training session. On the course you will be given a series of programming tasks to complete and an opportunity for review at the end of each task. Each attendee will work on their own console, which could be any member of the Eos family (Ion Xe, Gio, Gio@5, Eos Ti). You will be asked to swap consoles throughout the session in order for you to gain more experience on the entire family.

    Amplify Day 1 – Theatre

    The aim of Day 1 is to simulate a conventional theatrical approach to programming styles and methods.

    By the end of the session the participants will be better able to:

    • Improve their show file preparation skills
    • Be more efficient in the setup of their console before starting programming
    • Be a more proficient programmer
    • Vastly improve workflow

    Amplify Day 2 – Busking Live Events

    The aim of Day 2 is to show you tips and tricks about setting up your console for ‘non-linear playback’ (busking) and will help dispel the myth that “you can’t busk on an Eos”. There is no preparation work required for this session, but you are encouraged to bring along some music that you can busk to at the end of the day.

    By the end of the session the participants will be better able to:

    • Create a layout suitable for busking
    • Create complex effects
    • Manage multiple playback lists and complex fader configurations
    • Busk a light show to a song at the end of the session

    Course Requirements

    In order to attend an Amplify session, you will need to have already attended either our Ion or Eos training course. Before your session, you will be sent an information package and will be expected to prepare and bring a show file that you will use in the Amplify sessions. Please note that there will be no time in the Amplify session to create your show file – you will have to have prepared it in advance. We will also not be covering any of the training topics covered in our standard Eos/Ion training course.

    The sessions are from 10:00 to 17:00 on both days and cost $30 to attend.  
    Space is limited: only 5 seats are available for each session. Registration is on a first come, first served basis.
    You must be at least 18 years of age to attend this session.
    You may be required to supply proof that you have previously attended an ETC training session.
