Portland, OR (November 13, 2013)—Audinate has debuted an online series of specialized networking courses that can be used for RU credits towards a CTS certification. The first two courses, “The Principles of Digital Audio” and “Introduction to IP Networking for AV Systems,” are currently available on the Audinate website.
“The Principles of Digital Audio” covers the encoding and representation of audio in digital formats, how audio is communicated and manipulated in the digital domain and introduces the features and benefits of digital audio networking.
“Introduction to IP Networking for AV Systems” provides an informative discussion on the adoption of IP networking and then introduces the OSI model and how data travels through network layers and hardware. It concludes with a more focused look at how Dante implements networking standards in the context of transporting media.
"As digital audio networking becomes even more important in today’s large and small scale installations, anyone who doesn’t have an understanding of IT networks and how they work could be losing out on important projects," commented Landon Gentry, manager of Global Supportive Services at Audinate. “We believe that these courses will help de-mystify digital audio networking and introduce people on how straightforward IT networks really are."
