Max Glider visits Pitt's inaugural Broadcast I Class

The University of Pittsburgh's inaugural Broadcast I class was treated to an exciting discussion regarding audio with Max Glider, the Learning Space Services Coordinator for Pitt's Center for Teaching and Learning.

Mr. Glider engaged the students on subjects such as sound waves, conversion of linear and digital sound waves, various ways to modulate and interpret sound using mixing boards, types of microphones and their uses, as well as implementation of mixing spound for broadcasts. Mr. Gilder walked students through the elements of the mixing board and entertained pertinent questions regarding its many uses.

In this upcoming Wednesday's class, students will utilize the state-of-the-art Calrec Brio 36 consoles in Pitt Studios.

Broadcast I introduces students to the components of both live event broadcasts and news broadcasts. The 15 week class takes a critical approach, while implementing "hands on" experience by utilizing the state-of-the-art Pitt Studios control rooms, shading room, remote room and on-air studio. Each class includes industry professionals, who work one-on-one with the students to provide a personal and unique educational experience.
