Yamaha Pro Audio Education and Training Expanded with New “Audioversity” Initiative
It is our goal to spread the knowledge and technology required for skillful operation of the most evolved audio equipment and communication networks via Audioversity, in order to deliver the best possible sound and music to people everywhere. Our new Audioversity logo has been designed to embody that concept with a motif that symbolizes sound transmission and equalization as well as the dynamism of sound and music and the way all of those elements create connections between devices and people.
Mr. Mike Lowe / Director of Britannia Row Productions (UK)
Britannia Row Productions has always been able to rely with full confidence on Yamaha’s legendary product reliability and excellent back-up through advice, technical support, training and service. Our people and customers are highly appreciative of all of these benefits not only enjoyed in the UK but wherever we are or have been in the world. The Audioversity initiative to expand on and drive forward an already great service is further reassuring for the future.
Mr. Rudolf Pirc / Senior Partner of Neumann & Müller (Germany)
Neumann & Müller have been using Yamaha audio products for years and appreciate their high reliability. In particular, our orientation towards IP-based workflows with Yamaha's deep integration of the audio network standard Dante has made it a decisive tool for modern event productions. This requires extensive training for our technicians and trainees, which unfortunately sometimes falls behind in everyday production. We therefore very much welcome the "Audioversity" approach as a manufacturer initiative and see our confidence in the Yamaha brand strengthened once again.
Mr. Pete O’Neil / Director of Diversified AVE Engineering West (USA)
The Yamaha trainer is a wealth of knowledge on the product line, and really highlighted some of the unique features of the product. He was then able to do a deep dive on DSP programming with our field engineering team. Yamaha’s training seminar has helped us successfully implement systems in two US major league stadium venues, and continues to reinforce our support of the Yamaha digital console line. The seminar was also essential for us to be able to call upon in a recent high-profile tech client venue opening.
The quality of the training efforts and responsiveness is greatly appreciated from the integrators perspective.
Mr. Paul Holladay / Technical Director of Southeast Christian Church (USA)
Yamaha’s training seminar has been an invaluable tool at Southeast Christian Church that has advanced our knowledge of not only consoles, but the entire Yamaha ecosystem. Engineers new to Yamaha gained a quick proficiency that has allowed them to excel in providing an exceptional worship experience. These training seminars have also empowered our seasoned veterans with new tools and features that elevate their already remarkable skills. Through Yamaha we have been able to take full advantage of our investment throughout our many campuses.
Mr. Thierry Voisin / Project Manager of ENGIE INEO (France)
Yamaha’s Training seminar was very helpful for us to understand how to achieve the best design for their products. Indeed, we had a very exciting project for a well-known shopping center in Paris Area. All the project was based on a Dante Networked between the matrix, amplifiers and the sources to make the background music sound reinforcement into the main corridors. Thanks to the support of Yamaha’s Training, we had a perfect understanding regarding the power of DSP from Yamaha, the audio over IP network and to be completely autonomous to create the user interface design with ProVisionaire Touch.
Mr. Andy Cooper / Yamaha Audioversity Trainer (UK)
Having met Yamaha customers from more than 40 countries around the world, I know that Audioversity will meet the needs of many sound engineers, system designers, and operators at professional, enthusiastic amateur, and beginner levels. Not only with face-to-face sessions, but also with new remote learning and web-based content. All our skillful and experienced trainers, writers, and presenters are ready to reach more people with more helpful technical materials than ever before.
Mr. Yoshi Tsugawa / General Manager of Yamaha Pro Audio Division (Japan)
With the breathtaking pace of change in the pro audio world, manufacturers have a responsibility to do much more than simply release new products. Through our Audioversity initiative we will be able to provide ongoing added value for the systems our customers need and depend on, and hopefully, in cooperation with everyone involved in the pro audio industry, play a role in driving the industry forward into the future.
