Husson University’s New England School of Communications (NESCom) installed a Summa audio console to give its video production and audio engineering students real –world experience on an industry-standard desk.
“A huge advantage of our program is that students train on the same equipment they will be using to earn a living,” said NESCom Executive Director Rodney Verrill, in a previous statement.
Students will use the audio console to produce live newscasts and recorded public affairs shows.
NESCom also expects to use the console to connect with its remote production truck.
“More and more educational establishments are recognizing the benefits of training students on equipment they’re likely to encounter when they enter the world of professional audio broadcasting,” said Dave Lewty, Calrec U.S. regional sales manager, in a previous statement. “NESCom is ensuring new video production and audio engineers graduate with directly relevant experience, which benefits the whole industry.”
