Dante AV Networking World ISE 2018 - Amsterdam, Netherlands

Feb 05, 2018

 

Audinate’s Dante AV Networking World training event at ISE will take place on the 5th of February at the RAI.

As Dante has grown in popularity and the event has evolved, we want to ensure that we are delivering the content that our channel and customers value. In response to feedback from attendees, we will be rolling out a new format for Dante AV Networking World at ISE 2018. There will be three full-day tracks running simultaneously in separate rooms:

  • Track 1 will offer Level 1 & 2 Dante Certification and case studies by relevant industry manufacturers.
  • Track 2 will offer a brand new complement to Audinate's Dante Certification series called "Beyond Certification: Tips, Tricks and Best Practices with Dante." This is new program designed for intermediate attendees that have completed Level 1 and Level 2 certification, but don't have a need for more complex topics and systems covered in Level 3 Certification. This course will teach attendees problem-solving skills for the most common mistakes in system design. This course is ideal for reinforcement of Dante Certification topics along with new approaches to IT convergence, system design and more.
  • Track 3 will offer Level 3 Dante Certification. 

You will also have an opportunity to meet with some of the most influential audio manufacturers, including Attero Tech, Focusrite, Stage Tec, Visionary Solutions, Yamaha Commercial Audio, Symetrix, Allen & Heath, Stewart Audio, Tascam, Xilica, RDL and Neutrik, with more signing on every day!
