The entire #DontStopTheEducation series of online seminars and live roundtables from the Sennheiser SoundAcademy are now available to watch on demand – anytime and anywhere. The series, which started streamed live from March 2020, lets viewers benefit from a wealth of expertise from both Sennheiser engineers and international industry luminaries.
Early during the pandemic, the Sennheiser team created #DontStopTheEducation, transforming their professional face-to-face training services into free online courses. In addition, live round tables were organized where notable industry professionals shared their expertise or gave behind-the-scenes insights from live tours such as Ed Sheeran’s Divide Tour.
“Over time, we aggregated a host of exclusive content and valuable educational material, covering diverse audio topics from live mixing to streaming to touchless audio,” said Volker Schmitt, Manager Technical Application Engineering at Sennheiser. “This can now be accessed via the SoundAcademy platform and the Sennheiser YouTube channel. We are extremely grateful to all the engineers who have shared their knowledge and helped to create exceptional content for the industry.”
