Sonic Solutions (Nasdaq:SNIC) announced today that VET (Video Engineering and Training) has established the first Sonic-certified professional training program for the European DVD industry. Based in London, VET has developed a focused course to educate producers and engineers in the essentials of DVD title preparation including title planning, MPEG video encoding, authoring, menu concepts, DVD formatting, and output to DVD-R and Digital Linear Tape (DLT).
Joan Leese, VET’s Training Director explains, ‘DVD is an exciting way to communicate a message, entertain, and connect with others. VET’s training is designed for basic and advanced DVD tutorials to enable the new breed of DVD professionals to fully realize the potential of this exciting new medium. At VET, we also aim to introduce the potential of DVD technology via courses for the non-technical. Our Authoring and Advanced Authoring courses will, as always, have a strong emphasis on practical application and hands-on experience.’ Additionally, VET will offer specialized training modules for advanced MPEG video encoding.
Commenting on VET’s appointment as a Sonic Certified Training Centre, Sonic Vice President of European Operations, Rolf Hartley added, ‘We’re delighted to be associated with VET as one of the UK’s acknowledged leaders in training programs.
