Singapore’s Y-DACC becomes first Dante Certified Training Center


Audinate has established its first Dante Certified Training Center (DCTC) at Yamaha’s Digital Audio Creative Center (Y-DACC) as part of an expansion of its global training services. The centre will conduct hands-on Dante training and administer exams for sound and video engineers.

Audinate established its global Dante Certification Program in 2016. Three sequential levels of certification are available, ranging from an introduction to audio networking through managing audio-video in a secured, Layer 3 routed environment. Classes are available both online and in-person. In January, the Dante Certification Program will receive the 2021 Edition update – its first major refresh in five years, including significant updates such as the addition of video to the Dante solution.

Y-DACC offers pre- and post-sales education to sound engineers, helping them to learn about audio technology and mixing with Yamaha digital systems. Hands-on sessions are delivered with Yamaha’s Rivage PM10 digital mixing system, alongside the CL and QL series digital consoles, and training for installed audio solutions is also provided, including signal processors, multi-channel amps and speakers.

“Our DCTC is a solid platform for both Audinate and Yamaha to educate sound engineers about the latest digital audio networking technology,” commented Yamaha Singapore’s Lawrence Tan. “At Yamaha Singapore, all members of the pro audio team are certified to deliver Levels 1 and 2 of the Dante Certification Program. In addition, we are currently working closely with Audinate to increase the number of Master Instructors who can deliver Level 3 training, especially in the updated 2021 Edition program.”

Chihaya ‘Chick’ Hirai, general manager of the pro audio marketing and sales department at Yamaha Corporation, previously worked at Yamaha Singapore. “I was always very proud of Yamaha Singapore’s active training initiative when I was a member of the team,” he said. “I believe that this collaboration will further strengthen the partnership between Yamaha and Audinate and I look forward to our companies working even closer together, bringing Dante education at all levels to sound engineers throughout the world.”

The first Dante training sessions to take place at Y-DACC Singapore are on Tuesday, 8 December (Level 1) and Wednesday, 9 December (Level 2).
