Whitespaces - Why free the airwaves?

Well according to Google, "Remember that fuzzy static between channels on the old TVs? Today more than three-quarters of those radio airwaves, or "white space" spectrum, are completely unused. This vast public resource could offer a revolution in wireless services of all kinds, including universal wireless Internet. The FCC will soon decide whether to open this unused spectrum for general usage".They are leading the pack and you should visit their website http://www.freetheairwaves.com/....

Television Technical Operators College _ Freelancers Courses AUSTRALIA

The TTOC is offering up to 500 freelancers each year the chance to improve and expand their technical skills by providing a series of
intensive short courses and workshops.

Technology is changing at a rapid pace and so it is crucial that freelancers become multi-skilled and continue to update their technical skills. Those with the right skills will find their job horizons enhanced as they become part of a highly sought after pool of professionals.

To assist, we have developed Freelancer Short Courses in conjunction with the University of Western Sydney (UWS) and television industry partners. These courses are practical and are based on industry requirements. They include the following;

  • Up-skilling courses
  • Vendor accredited speciality equipment courses
  • General training courses.

As a further incentive, the College will fund all freelance training for the first three years for those with the appropriate industry experience and qualifications.

If you are a freelancer in the television industry, you are invited to register for free membership with the College for the first year.

Freelancers can also use our Skills Management service, to increase their employment opportunities in the television industry.


AV Magazine

AV's beat covers the projects, products, productions, technologies and techniques that matter to the AV industry, so we trust you'll find it worthy of a position in the smallest room in the house.

But AV isn't only a magazine: at www.av.net.au we're building a website that will extend beyond what you read in the magazine to include industry discussion and news forums that will keep you current and connected with what's happening in the world of AV.

As a service to the AV industry, the www.av.net.au web site will feature a FREE ONLINE EMPLOYMENT NOTICEBOARD — this is a great way of plugging into the AV community, and much cheaper than a RSVP membership.

Although the site is still being built, we are able to take job ads now, in preparation for the launch of the site by the weekend.

To post a job ad, download our standard Position Vacant spreadsheet from www.av.net.au/downloads/vacancy.xls, fill in the details, then send it to employment@av.net.au:.

We look forward to meeting you on the AV Forums and hearing from you about the industry and the new magazine.
