ChyronHego announces a new certification course on Click Effects PRIME
ChyronHego has extended its ChyronHego Academy online learning program with a new certification course focused on the company’s Click Effects PRIME graphics authoring solution for live arena- and stadium-based A/V presentations. Like the PRIME Graphics certification course launched earlier this year, the new Click Effects PRIME course is a zero-cost training resource.
The ChyronHego Academy’s self-paced, online curriculum for Click Effects PRIME has been developed by product experts with professional field experience. While the certification course “can’t replicate the experience of working in a venue with a massive screen or video board”, according to the press release, it does simulate the user interface and process of configuring Click Effects PRIME for accurate playout of sponsor ads, scoreboard data, and much more.
Upon successful completion of the course, operators can earn ChyronHego Academy certification by submitting a professional recommendation confirming that they have successfully demonstrated their skills in a real-world environment, whether as a professional or volunteer.
“Operators who earn income from graphics playout for live, in-venue sports and entertainment have been particularly hard-hit by the coronavirus crisis,” said Carol Bettencourt, manager of strategic marketing projects at ChyronHego. “Whether they have a weekend gig working for a local minor league baseball team or a full-time job working on pro sports production, many of these operators are anxiously awaiting the return of live sports. Our new Click Effects PRIME certification course provides these operators with convenient online training that will help them level up their skills so they are prepared when live events return.” “The ChyronHego Academy is a living, breathing tool that continues to grow and evolve to support designers and operators across the broadcast industry,” added Bettencourt. “We will continue to expand this program in the coming weeks and months to ensure that learners can develop the knowledge and skills necessary for efficient graphics playout in a fast-paced production environment.”
