Optimizing Your Dante Network

"Optimizing Your Dante Network" is a new course designed to teach attendees about some of the key design concepts, and more common technologies deployed in typical medium-sized networks. This course is ideal for reinforcement of Dante Certification topics along with new approaches to IT convergence, system design and more. 

This course will give attendees practical real-world examples to get the most out of their Dante network.

Kieran Walsh from Audinate will be conducting the training

Prolight+Sound Middle East-Keiran WalshKieran has enjoyed a varied career in Audio engineering, currently the role at Audinate sees him giving support and training to manufacturers of a wide range of AV equipment. Prior to Joining Audinate, Kieran was Head of Digital and RF at Britannia Row Productions. Apart from the work most associated with Britannia Row, being live concert sound production, Britannia Row has a healthy interest in "special projects". These projects included many broadcast events where equipment and skills would be leased to a facilities house. Kieran was heavily involved in integrating equipment from various departments and disciplines to create a functioning system. Kieran attributes his interest in the integration of different disciplines to his background and training as a classical musician and producer/engineer of classical and Jazz recordings, which have been carried as radio programs and incidental music for feature films.
