NAMM 2017 to offer Dante Training Programme

The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) has announced it will provide Dante training and certification sessions at its annual Anaheim, California trade show, 20-21 January 2017.

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 Programme.

TEC Tracks at The 2017 NAMM Show will also host a special “Introduction to Dante” session during its newly-announced Live Sound Day on Thursday 19 January, during which participants can learn more about the multi-channel, digital media networking protocol.

The on-site Dante Training Programme will offer three educational courses beginning with the programme’s “First Steps into Digital Audio Networking,” a 90-minute course recommended for 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, according to the company.

“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.”

Dante Training and Certification will take place on Friday 20 January and Saturday 21 January in the Laguna Meeting Room, located on the fourth floor of the Hilton Anaheim. Participants can register to attend here.

The 2017 NAMM Show will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center from 19-22 January 2017.
