Hold the line – Phone Blitz delivers extension to learning exchange

Setting up a phone system isn’t a job, it’s a calling.   And on 19 July 2018, the first Technorama Telephony training session connected with the participants.

Over the day, five students from three Victorian stations went from knowing nothing about phone systems to building and configuring a complete setup for their stations.   They left knowing how to size and lay out a system, set the phone parameters, connect music-on-hold, interface a hybrid, and even how to turn on a studio light when calls come in.

The class was taught by John Maizels from Technorama, and was based around the Commander BN systems.   The fully hands-on training demonstrated just how robust the platform really is.  Despite best attempts to misconnect just about every interface, the systems kept running and never missed a beat.   In the process the class experimented with many types of phones, and external lines, and even saw how to connect mobile phones to the systems via bluetooth.

We congratulate Geoff from 3CH, Rob from Radio Mansfield, and Ren, Phil and David from 3MDR.

If your station needs training or a phone system, get in touch with Technorama or the CMTO and let us see if we can create an opportunity for you.
