Dante AV Networking World - Las Vegas, NV

Jun 07, 2016


Audinate co-sponsored the most informative and popular audio networking event during InfoComm. Dante AV Networking World Las Vegas took place on June 8, 2016 at the Treasure Island Hotel & Casino, and attracted over 300 attendees. The event featured presentations and Dante training workshops, and included 40 of the most influential audio manufacturers in A/V.

With over 300 OEM licensees and over 750 Dante-enabled products now available on the market, Dante has become the de facto standard in audio networking. Attendees found out why its popularity is skyrocketing, and saw how Dante is involved in the design and installation of performing arts centers, corporate conferencing systems, public spaces, live sound tours and recording studios.

Following the joint general session, attendees had the option of attending one of two tracks.

  • Introduction to Dante, covering audio networking fundamentals, basic networking concepts, creating a small-scale Dante network, and using Dante Controller and Dante Virtual Soundcard.
  • Intermediate Dante Concepts, covering topics such as Dante redundancy, clocking, latency, multicast and AES67.

  • Intermediate Dante Concepts, covering topics such as Dante redundancy, clocking, latency, multicast and AES67.
  • Advanced Dante Workshop, an interactive session covering advanced networking concepts, mixed use networks, networking best practices, and troubleshooting techniques.

Dante Certification Program

Audinateintroduced a new certification program at the AV Networking World event at InfoComm. The Dante Certification program provides an easy way for design consultants, integrators and others in the industry to promote their proficiency to build, operate and support Dante networks of various sizes. The certification program will initially have two levels, and goal is to add additional levels, as well as specializations by industry role in the future. 

  • Level 1 Certification tests proficiency of the topics covered in the “Introduction to Dante” course, and certification will consist of an online exam only. All attendees will receive instructions on how to access the exam and complete the certification process at the conclusion of the event.
  • Level 2 Certification tests proficiency of the topics covered in the “Intermediate Dante Concepts” course, and certification will consist of an in-person test and an online exam.  All attendees will have the opportunity to complete the in-person test during the event on June 7th, and will also receive access to the online exam and instructions on how to complete the certification process.

There will be no charge for attendees who wish to get Level 1 or Level 2 certified as part of this event. After InfoComm, Audinate will be scheduling a series of regional training events with our partners for both levels of certification. Future training events may have a fee associated with the certification process depending on the format and venue.
