Audinate is offering free Dante Certification Training to ISE 2020 attendees – no matter their familiarity with Dante – through coursework that focuses on valuable and practical insights for using Dante in real-world, AV-over-IP integrations. Beginners will build proficiency of basic Dante audio networking concepts, while intermediate Dante-users will learn specific Dante capabilities such as redundancy, clocking, latency and multicast. Advanced coursework focuses on best practices for simplifying management over the most complex network topographies.

“No matter your familiarity with Dante, we have some exciting tips, tricks, best practices, and key capabilities we can share to make the work you do more effective,” said Joshua Rush, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Audinate. “We cover everything from introductory AV-over-IP concepts to specific approaches and software tools that enable advanced management techniques on today’s modern networks.”

Dante Certification Training takes place on Feb. 10 at The RAI, Rooms G104 & G105, located at Europaplein 2-22, 1078 AZ, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

While free to all, the training does require ISE 2020 registration – as you will need an ISE badge to enter the venue – and also requires registration through the Audinate website, by clicking here.

Those that sign up for a session will also be invited to a discussion with Audinate CEO Aidan Williams. The talk will look at the past year of exciting updates that have taken place with Dante, the company’s industry-leading media networking technology. That presentation begins at 9am in the same location as training: The RAI, Rooms G104 & G105.
