The new complex comprises several demo facilities, classrooms and conference areas, while a ‘Room of Sound’ allows a variety of audio systems to be configured and showcased.
Located in Reggio Emilia, Italy, close to RCF’s HQ, the new facility reflects the company’s long-term investment in research and development.
The Audio Academy will allow system integrators, FOH sound engineers, installers and rental company staff to participate in courses and seminars on subjects including indoor acoustics, conference systems, fixed installations, live events, sound diffusion and EVAC system design. There will be lectures from professional teachers from the industry, as well as events overseen RCF staff.
Fausto Incerti, general manager of RCF, commented: “Our goal with the RCF Audio Academy is to share our knowledge and skills to the industry, and the possibility of adding value with more into deep education, and technical training in audio technology and acoustics. We also want to work closely together with universities, to give the possibility of an education course. The RCF Audio Academy is an investment for us. We feel the needs for an Audio Academy and a tutorial system with a vision, and a step forward with providing professional education, and necessary since many applications today are more complex than it was in the past.”
