Yamaha’s Audioversity Training delivers more RIVAGE PM learning opportunities
For many years, a key part of Yamaha’s professional audio service has been technical seminars, webinars and a wide range of other training and self training resources. As well as product-focused learning for sound engineers, systems integrators, venues, rental and event companies, Yamaha provides workflow-focused training on subjects ranging from how to approach live mixing, through to advanced theory like how to build a networked audio system using Dante. With continually increasing demand, in 2018 Yamaha’s education initiatives were consolidated under the Audioversity banner. At the same time the company expanded and updated its studio facilities for webinar recording and streaming in various locations around the world, accelerating the provision of intensive learning opportunities. Recently the Audioversity programme has been enhanced for sound engineers keen to learn about the latest RIVAGE PM Series digital mixing systems. Joining the established RIVAGE PM10 and PM7 systems, the newly-introduced, compact RIVAGE PM5 and RIVAGE PM3 allow a much wider range of applications and budgets to benefit from Yamaha’s flagship mixing technology. Produced by, and co-ordinated between, Yamaha’s three main technical centres in the UK, Japan and the USA, all live RIVAGE PM Series webinars are streamed globally and many are presented twice, to ensure people in as many time zones as possible can take part. Yamaha also runs online Q&A sessions, where people from all over the world can directly interface with the company’s experts to get answers to any technical enquiries.
