This course, designed for non-technical personnel, covers the basics necessary to produce a safe, good quality field produced shot from both microwave based vehicles and satellite uplink vehicles. We begin with a concentration on safety, advance to the basics of microwave principles and operation, then on to audio, video, various IFB techniques, lighting basics, use of wireless microphones and some advanced applications.
By the conclusion of the course the
participant should possess the basics required to set up a good live shot from the field and understand the safe practices involved in the application of typical remote news gathering equipment.
