Crestron, a global leader in enterprise control and automation technology recently announced it is launching DigitalMedia™ NVX and Avia™ DSP training courses across EMEA.

The DigitalMedia™ NVX course will offer practical application examples on how to implement an NVX solution using a dedicated network device. The award winning DigitalMedia NVX Series, the latest ground breaking addition to Crestron’s extensive family of DigitalMedia products, makes it possible to transmit stunning 4K60 4:4:4 HDR video over standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet, with zero latency. DigitalMedia NVX Series provides an infinitely scalable network AV solution, from a simple point-to-point setup, to thousands of endpoints, and requires only DM® NVX Series Encoders/Decoders.

The two-day workshop is aimed at integrators and technicians working with DigitalMedia equipment and will provide the tools and skills required to deploy systems in any size of project.

Neil Walton, training manager at Crestron EMEA comments: “The DM NVX course will provide training in the design and installation of networked video and audio distribution systems using Crestron DM NVX solutions. This will ensure that the interaction between designer, installer, programmer and end user is considered in all design decisions. At the core of this course are best practices for network implementation including an in depth look at network architecture and configuration”. On completion of this course, attendees will gain DM NVX certification and have the skills and confidence to tackle any size of Crestron project involving DigitalMedia NVX.

In addition, on 11th October 2017, the company is offering Avia™ DSP training. This course will provide the technical background required to dramatically simplify audio programming, tuning, expansion and integration within common DSP applications. Crestron’s new groundbreaking Avia DSPs and software tools are easy to configure, control and expand. They feature high-performance AEC that meets the most stringent professional standards on all 12 channels, audio conferencing via VoIP and connectivity for video conferencing.

The one day intermediate workshop is intended for audio professionals and Crestron programmers who design, or integrate systems with Avia DSPs. Walton comments: “This course will enable attendees to use the Avia audio tool to configure an Avia DSP live or offline. They will also be able to create and apply custom channel strips and presets, tune and setup a room’s DSP system and configure advanced functions such as DANTE audio network expansion and acoustic echo cancellation.”

In order to attend this course completion of Crestron’s online Avia Quick Start course and Audinate Dante course is a prerequisite.

Both courses will run across EMEA and bookings can be done through the Crestron training page at https://www.crestron.eu/training.
