Sennheiser SoundAcademy to Offer Free Audio Training Webinars

The Sennheiser SoundAcademy has started to provide free pro audio training webinars and product demonstrations globally. The webinars will cover a wide range of topics from wireless microphones, to audio for video, and conference beamforming microphones. They have been created for customers from the music industry, AV industry, film and video production teams, as well as the education and corporate sectors. The free training sessions will be offered at 1:30 a.m., 6:30 a.m., and 11 a.m. (all times Eastern Time), which allows people from around the world to tune in.

“These webinars are part of our three-pillar plan to support our customers during this unique and difficult time,” says Volker Schmitt, Director Customer Development and Application Engineering, who heads the Sennheiser SoundAcademy. “In addition to the webinars, which are open to everybody, we have also shifted individual customer training into the digital world. Furthermore, we are planning to have industry experts share their expertise in webcasts. Thanks to these webinars, we are very much looking forward to staying in touch with you all.”
