MALAYSIA: Stagetec Asia’s Stagetec Media Academy recently hosted Dante Certification training for levels one to three. The 2-day workshop was staged at the Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (Magic) in collaboration with Audinate and supported by Yamaha Malaysia and attracted more than 50 attendees from radio stations, TV networks, manufacturers, systems integrators and universities.
Dante Certification training prepares participants for the Dante certification examinations by providing a comprehensive understanding of the technology. The seminar kicked off with an introduction by Advon Tan, managing director of Stagetec Asia, following which, Audinate technical training manager Danu Vino commenced with the training.
‘The purpose of the training is to analyse and review the pros and cons of Dante, its capabilities and limitations, in order to maximise the use of the technology to ensure the ideal system implementation,’ explained Mr Tan. ‘Bringing live Dante Certification training seminars to the region allows us to cultivate an approach value added learning to all end users and broadcasting professionals.’
Patricia Leow from Yamaha thanked Stagetec Asia and Audinate for the opportunity to collaborate on the seminar. ‘This training is part of Yamaha Music Malaysia’s continued efforts in increasing and improving the professional audio industry’s understanding of Dante audio,’ she said. ‘This training was timely as the participants’ response shows just how well Dante has been received and accepted in Malaysia.’
One such participant was Idham Muchtar, an audio engineer for the Malaysian government. ‘The training definitely helped me in better understanding the digital audio network that I’m currently using, especially for advanced audio routing,’ he commented.
