NAMM 2017 will feature free Dante training and certification sessions at its annual Anaheim, California trade show from 20-21 January.
The sessions will be presented 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 on 19 January, where participants can learn more about the multi-channel, digital media networking protocol.
Zach Phillips, director of professional development for NAMM, says: “One of our goals is answering the industry’s call of expanding learning opportunities within the professional audio markets. 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.”
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 knowledge 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.
It will take place in the Laguna Meeting Room, located on the fourth floor of the Hilton Anaheim. Interested participants should register, as seating is limited.
