The LANG Academy will present its new summer training programne at Prolight + Sound. The Academy, which offers training in event technology with a focus on visual presentation, will be exhibiting for the fourth year at the show.
Due to the high demand for streaming technologies in the AV market, the LANG Academy is expanding its training seminars to include IP over AV topics this year. The training facility based in Lindlar, Germany now offers two IP training courses as part of its summer programme. The Signal Management Fundamentals seminar teaches basic knowledge about interfaces, signal processing and image processing. The Video Streaming Essentials course completes this study with topics related to IT network technology, data compression and streaming.
Another focus will be in the media server sector with AV Stumpfl RAW and Pandoras Box training courses. With the trend towards high-resolution, uncompressed content in both interactive and creative solutions, the demand for feed technology is exploding. Topics such as realtime compositing, tracking and show control are playing an important role. The technology industry is answering with modern and powerful media servers such as AV Stumpfl RAW, Christie Pandora’s Box and LANG HMS. These units will be presented as highlights at the LANG Academy booth.
Due to growing interest, the LANG Academy is extending its in-house expertise by becoming an official AV Stumpfl Media & Control Solutions training centre in April 2018.
Fabian Stumpfl, CEO of AV Stumpfl, said: “Both of our companies are well connected, which is why we are pleased to deepen our cooperation in the future. Especially this year, there will be a lot of interesting news regarding our media servers. This is why we are happy that the exchange of knowledge will succeed without any problems, thanks to the competence of the LANG Academy.”
This year LANG is celebrating its 40th anniversary. In April 1978, Paul Detlef Lang and his wife Gabriele founded the family business in their living room and adjoining garage. At that time it was called Audiovision Paul D. Lang. At first, the will to survive combined with a pursuit of innovation drove Paul Detlef Lang and his company. Eleven years after the founding of Audiovision Paul D. Lang, the first employees were hired. With the relocation of the company to Lindlar, LANG experienced steady growth.
In 2008, Paul Detlef’s son, Tobias Lang, took over as CEO. Today, 40 years after the company was founded, LANG is a stable company and reliable employer with 220 employees in Lindlar – among them 25 apprentices and six student workers. With the founding of LANG UK Ltd and a joint venture in Baranday, Switerland in the form of LANG-BARANDAY, the LANG family has grown beyond the borders of Germany.
