ESTA Launches eSET: Essential Skills for the Entertainment Technician


The ESTA Foundation announces the launch of eSET, a web-based source for essential terminology used within the entertainment technology industry, with over 2,200 terms selected and defined by industry leaders. From Lekos to Cheeseburgers, eSET cuts through the jargon and establishes clear terminology that will ensure better communication from region to region and person to person.

A subscription-based service, eSET’s searchable database provides the user with the terminology they need to understand and to be understood wherever their work takes them. In addition to the terminology, assessments for each discipline are provided as well as the means to create your own resources for learning and teaching. The service will continually be updated and refined to better serve the needs of our ever changing industry.

For industry professionals, it is a quick reference for new (or very old) terms. For teachers and students, it is an additional text that clearly defines what is important to teach and to learn and, with the assessments, provides an easy way to measure student understanding.

Annual subscriptions are $10 for students, $15 for professionals and $40 for a five-site license. To subscribe, visit eSET: We Speak Tech.
