In Audioby Media

Simplified system setup and limitless scalability addressed in multimedia presentation

RecordNumbersTunedIn_Allen_Heath_Audinate_Webinar.jpgOn March 6th Allen & Heath and Audinate hosted Network Simplicity that Scales from Sanctuary to Stage, a one-hour webinar that examined the simplified setup, nearly limitless scalability, and cost savings inherent within networked systems. Presented by Allen & Heath Marketing Manager Jeff Hawley and Senior V.P. Tim Schaeffer, along with Audinate Technical Sales Engineer Bernie Farkus, Sr. and Mix Magazine Content Director Tom Kenny, the free program discussed the basic principles of network audio and how Dante, Audinate’s audio-over-Ethernet technology, is a useful tool for those just starting out or ready to grow big with advanced operation and control.

Beginning with a basic overview of Dante and moving through scalability issues ranging from size to sophistication, Audinate’s Bernie Farkus concluded his portion of the presentation with a discussion of converged networks and the management of a multi-tiered corporate AV system. In turn, Allen & Heath’s Hawley and Schaeffer offered webinar viewers a look at video case studies employing the technology at a house of worship, in a school, and on tour. With thousands of registrants for the event, viewers actively participated, and asked questions revealing a keen interest in the technology for a broad range of applications.

“It was great to get a chance to connect with audio engineers and share what Allen & Heath has been up to in terms of Dante connectivity,” Jeff Hawley said. “The audience tuned-in in record numbers for this sort of event, was highly engaged, and truly valued the content. Given that we were swamped with extremely thoughtful questions at the end, I’d also say we should expect to see a plethora of new and exceptionally creative Dante applications in the very near future.”

Ervin Grinberg, Audinate’s marketing communications director concurred, saying “The interest in our new Dante AVIO Adapters was off the charts. The way in which Bernie, Jeff, and Tim were able to illustrate their use with a combination of screenshots, technical charts, list of benefits, and videos from the field drew a lot of attention for sure.”

Unique in its use of both interactive and multimedia aspects, the webinar was officially sponsored by Allen & Heath, Audinate, and Mix Magazine. Since the conclusion of the live event, the archived, on-demand version of the program has continued to draw considerable interest online, netting hundreds of additional views in just a few days since the live presentation.
