Play Incorporated announces “Trinity Power Techniques Tour 2000,” a series of professional Trinity training seminars and free production tool demonstrations that will visit 22 cities across the United States. At each tour stop, Trinity users will learn powerful techniques and professional tricks to help them maximize their Trinity’s capabilities in both live and post-production environments.

Beginning September 5 in Denver, Trinity Power Techniques Tour 2000 crisscrosses the United States for 16 weeks before wrapping up in late December in Seattle. At each tour stop, Trinity users can participate in an all-day, professional training seminar given by one of the industry’s foremost Trinity experts, Lee Stranahan. Additionally, separate product demonstration sessions have been scheduled at every tour stop for video professionals wanting a firsthand look at Play’s award-winning Trinity, HoloSet and Pocket Producer products.

During the training seminars, Mr. Stranahan will provide seven hours of instruction at each locale, showing attendees how to supercharge their productions with creative editing techniques; how to quickly make custom effects using Panamation and Personal FX; how to easily create sophisticated graphics, titles and animations; and how to stay organized by customizing application interfaces. Mr. Stranahan served as the lead teacher and demo artist at Play’s NAB 2000 training events and is well known for creating industry-standard instructional videos and seminars.

On a separate day, free product demonstrations will be given during two sessions at each tour stop, from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. During these sessions, attendees can get a complete overview of the Trinity system, as well as Play’s HoloSet, a state of-the-art chroma key and virtual set technology, and Pocket Producer, a Palm-based portable logging and device control unit. All of these products have won “Best of NAB” awards from leading video trade publications for breaking new ground in their respective production environments.

Registration for any one of the Trinity training seminars costs only $249 per person and Play is offering a $50 discount to attendees who pre-register at least two weeks in advance of the tour-stop of their choice.
