What will you learn

We will take you on a ‘hands on’ journey covering the complete installation and configuration of the TMS. This includes the hardware platform, known as CHIPS, which consists of the TMS Server, network switch, UPS and rack. The course will also cover the configuration of the software and any pre-requisites needed for the system operation. By the end of the course you will be able to operate the TMS and test the configuration completed during the course. The course is fully structured and will run at a pace that suits you.

Who should attend

The course is aimed at dealers, integrators or onsite service engineers that are familiar with cinema terminology and workflows. It will be beneficial to have an operational understanding of a digital cinema projection system prior to attending but is not required to complete the course.
