April 23rd, 2014 | Posted in News, newsletter

CEDAR has installed a state of the art training facility at its Cambridge (UK) headquarters. This is equipped with three fully expanded CEDAR Cambridge™ processing systems and can be used to train up to four students at a time.

Students can take advantage of hands-on product training that will equip them to tackle audio restoration for remastering, archives and libraries, problem solving in post and broadcast, and forensic casework. Senior trainer for CEDAR’s forensic division, Alan French, is delighted with the new facility. He says, “We use the room for training customers and to keep our dealers up to date so that they are better able to support their own customers. We have had very positive feedback from both. What’s more, training isn’t confined to our CEDAR Cambridge systems, and we can install other products – such as our DNS noise suppressors and systems supporting CEDAR Studio 6™ – at a moment’s notice when requested.” More »
