PureLink is offering InfoComm CTS RU Approved Training Classes, tell us a little bit about what those are.
PureLink’s CTS RU classes provide attendees useable and comprehensive knowledge on our product lines; allowing them to spec, design, install, and support PureLink based systems successfully. Those attendees who hold any variant of the CTS certification will earn 1 RU from each of our CTS RU class offerings.
What can attendees expect to get from the class?
Attendees will gain in-depth knowledge of our VIP IP Video encoders, decoders, network switches and VPX IP Video management software. This includes our VIP100 II, VIP200, and VIP300H-U encoder/decoder lines, as well as our VPX IP Video Management Software, and our VIP-NET Cat and fiber network switches. In addition to our products we dive in to network topologies. Designers, installers, consultants and others will be armed with a comprehensive understanding of the VIP solutions and how to successfully and easily design and implement them into many different applications.
When and how do you offer the classes?
We offer the classes in live online lab based webinars, as well as trade shows and at dealer locations by appointment. Due to the increasing interest and demand of IP Video solutions, we have been offering and will continue to offer four classes or more each month. We will be advertising our April classes very soon at purelinkav.com
Approximately how long are the classes?
The classes run one and one half hours or more because of the CTS RU requirements, and the in-depth certification training.
Do you provide the class outside of a webinar environment?
We do. There will be a class this week in Dallas at the Bormannia South Expo. We have also conducted the class at dealer locations as requested. We have plans to offer the class at additional trade shows, such as InfoComm 2017 and others, to be announced soon on our website purelinkav.com
What benefits to the attendees obtain after the class?
The attendees are truly ready at the end of the class to confidently design and implement IP Video solutions anywhere, from our 180 meter point to point VIP200, to large 256 x 256 matrix systems using our VIP200 HD or VIP300 UHD endpoints and our VIP-NET network switches, which are purpose built for IP Video and general usage. The attendees will watch a live lab of our VPX software and see it easily discover endpoints and build a matrix IO map, all with the press of a single button.
What kind of other classes and training does PureLink offer?
PureLink will be announcing additional CTS RU classes very soon. Look for announcements on our website, via email blasts and press releases. These classes will include training on our MPX100 II Wifi Digital Signage Player, as well as our MPX Content Management Server Software and other digital signage offerings. Classes are also planned for our flagship PM series of cross platform matrix routers and our large lineup of HDMI 2.0 products.
