Audinate, the company that developed the Dante digital audio format, will hold its AV Networking World Dante training event during InfoComm 2018 in Las Vegas.
The new training course is called “Optimizing Your Dante Network,” and takes place on Tuesday, June 5 at the Las Vegas Renaissance. The 8th annual event features three educational sessions and a manufacturer’s showcase with a variety of products that employ the digital audio platform.
In addition to the training sessions, the event includes a “Sneak Peak from Dante Labs” presentation to highlight upcoming products with their technologies.
AV Networking World Sessions
Audinate says sponsors of the AV Networking World training sessions include: Atlas/IED, Bose, Crest Audio, Extron, Focusite Pro, Nexo, Peavey Commercial Audio, Music Group, Powersoft Audio, Shure, Symetrix, Visionary Solutions, and Yamaha Commercial Audio.
Here’s a closer look at each of the three educational sessions:
- Introduction to Dante: A training session designed for integrators who are unfamiliar with the format, this course features Level 1 and Level 2 certification training, along with interactive workstations to practice the concepts covered during the session. Some of the topics covered include basic networking concepts; how to create small-scale network redundancy, clocking, latency, and multicast.
- Dante Level 3 Certification: This course was developed for integrators that have completed the Level 1 and Level 2 training classes. The company says Level 3 training provides integrators with a more comprehensive level of training through its advanced networking concepts and best practices for using the platform on mixed-use networks. Additionally, Level 3 training also provides troubleshooting techniques for advanced problem solving in the field.
- Optimizing Your Dante Network: This course provides hands-on training to intermediate and advanced educated integrators. In this course, integrators will cover networking fundamentals, IP addressing techniques, optimizing network resilience, tips for integrating audio networks with IT infrastructure, broadcast vs. multicast, and best practices for networking security.
400 Products are Domain Manager Ready
Just prior to InfoComm 2018: Audinate also announces there are now over 400 Dante-enabled products on the market.
Dante Domain Manager provides additional levels of functionality to audio systems such as user authentication, role-based security and audit capabilities.
“The number of licensees that have upgraded their products to support Domain Manager is truly exciting and speaks to the value they see in it for their customers,” says Joshua Rush, senior VP of marketing.
“We expect to see another large wave of products announcing support for Domain Manager at InfoComm in June.”
Dante Domain Manager is a virtualized application that runs on Windows and Linux desktop and server platforms.
The solution features a web-based interface and provides a new software layer that integrators can employ to configure, control and scale AV systems under a unified dashboard.
