Learning Event 1:
DESCRIBE THE COMPONENTS AND USES OF THE ENG/EFP SYSTEM
The availability of portable television production systems gives the
commanders in the field another tool with which to train their troops. In
addition to working in a studio environment, you may be tasked to work "on
location" for a variety of reasons. There are three major uses of ENG/EFP
systems in the military; education, briefings and orientations, and
a. Education. A majority of education and training situations in the
military use the demonstration method of instruction. By using portable TV
equipment you can bring a large object into the classroom. This reduces the
need to move soldiers from one part of the post to another, and avoids
repeating costly demonstrations.
In some cases a videotape demonstration
allows soldiers to complete training quickly and begin performing the
b. Briefing and orientations. A briefing is intended to give personnel
a rapid presentation of a particular situation. For example, in a tactical
situation, remote television equipment can record pertinent data to the
performance of a particular mission and play it back at another location.
This provides speed and versatility that is not otherwise possible.
