Demonstrating a continued commitment to serve its community of professional audio members and attendees, The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) has announced it will feature Dante™ training and certification sessions at its annual Anaheim, California trade show, January 20-21.
The sessions will be presented at the show by Audinate, and will offer attendees the opportunity to experience an intensive two-days of hands-on training as part of the company’s Dante Certification Program. As an added programming bonus, TEC Tracks at The NAMM Show will host a special “Introduction to Dante” session during its newly-announced Live Sound Day, Thursday, January 19. On that day, participants can learn more about the multi-channel, digital media networking protocol.
“One of our goals is answering the industry’s call of expanding learning opportunities within the professional audio markets,” commented Zach Phillips, director of professional development for NAMM. “Securing this opportunity for Dante Certification at the show is another demonstration of our commitment to offering added value for all of our audio professionals.”
“At Audinate, we are committed to the delivery of industry-leading training on audio networking and Dante,” shared Audinate Vice President of Marketing Joshua Rush. “To that end, we are excited to work with NAMM this year to offer – free – our popular Dante Certification Program.”
The on-site Dante Training Program will offer three educational courses beginning with the program’s “First Steps into Digital Audio Networking,” a 90-minute course recommended for those people who are brand-new to audio networking or are unsure if they should delve into a full Dante Certification course. The second course is the “Dante Training and Certification Level 1,” which is also 90 minutes and designed to provide a useful background in audio networking for audio professionals and does not assume any previous background in computer networking. The third course, “Dante Training and Certification Level 2,” is a three-hour course designed for intermediate to advanced Dante users and should only be taken once Level 1 has been completed.
Dante Training and Certification will take place on Friday, January 20 and Saturday, January 21 in the Laguna Meeting Room, located on the fourth floor of the Hilton Anaheim. Interested participants should plan to register early, as seating is limited. Please register to attend by visiting https://www.audinate.com/namm17.
