Pakistan takes part in Berlin Television Course

Pakistan was prominent among developing countries taking part in a three-month course specially designed for experienced engineers in the field of television studio measurement and maintenance engineering at the Berlin Television Training Centre here with the avowed objective of enhancing the professional qualifications of such engineers by providing a systematic and in-depth approach to the core knowledge and practical techniques. The Berlin Television Training Centre (TTC), a department of Sender Freies Berlin (SFB), has been conducting basic and advanced training courses for television personnel from the developing world since its inception in 1970.

Pakistan's trainees-Khalif Asif Shaikh and Kausar Rehman Dar - testified to the utility of the three-month training period in improving the quality of production and transmission in Pakistan's TV studios especially in terms of the high degree of computerisation employed in the use and maintenance of TV equipment. "It is directly applicable to my field of work at Pakistan Television Centre, Karachi", said Shaikh who had 16 years of experience as |engineer-in-charge' behind him in his assessment. "It improves our ability to perform complex measurements and maintenance in an efficient and effective manner", stated Dar, a TV engineer at Quetta's TV Centre for fourteen years, adding that the development of problem-solving strategies in response to technological innovations was also facilitated by the training course. The course in question includes measurements in time and frequency domains, advanced measurements, applied measurements in audio and video equipment, and current trends in T.V. engineering. The courses are sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation (BMZ) in recognition of the important role played by manpower development and the training of experts in modernising production studios with equipment, innovations and processes.

"We are constantly on the move to meet the changing needs of Third World television stations by regularly adapting our curricula and courses to the current technological and professional developments", stated Dr. Dietrich Berwanger, Head of the TV Training Centre in Berlin. He gave high praise to the diligence and discipline of the trainees who left no stone unturned in extracting the maximum benefit from the course towards application back home. Some 2800 students from 80 countries had passed through the portals of the TTC over the years for receiving training in various fields, ,it was pointed out.
