Audinate is offering a series of specialised networking courses online that can be used for RU credits toward a Certified Technology Specialist (CTS) certification. Presently, two courses are now available: The Principles of Digital Audio and Introduction to IP Networking for AV Systems. The Principles of Digital Audio covers the encoding and representation of audio in digital formats, how audio is communicated and manipulated in the digital domain and introduces the features and benefits of digital audio networking. Each person taking the course will receive 3.0 CTS RU credits in CTS Domain A. The second new course, Introduction to IP Networking for AV Systems provides a high level informative discussion on the adoption of IP networking and then introduces the OSI model and how data travels through network layers and hardware. It concludes with a more focused look at how Dante implements networking standards in the context of transporting media. This course has been approved for 3.0 CTS RU credits in CTS Domain A and 3.0 CTS-D RU credits in CTS-D Domain B. "As digital audio networking becomes even more important in today’s large and small scale installations, anyone who doesn’t have an understanding of IT networks and how they work could be losing out on important projects," said Landon Gentry, manager of global support services at Audinate. “We believe that these courses will help de-mystify digital audio networking and introduce people on how straightforward IT networks really are." www.audinate.com
