Ansata hosts d&b software workshop in Mumbai
INDIA: d&b audiotechnik’s Indian distributor, Ansata, has maintained its education and seminar strategy for the manufacturer, with the most recent workshop taking place in Mumbai. This latest seminar highlighted d&b’s software, such as ArrayCalc and the R1 Remote control solution and was presented by Neil Lean and Yatin Tawde of Ansata.
Live sound engineers and rental company owners from across Mumbai, Goa and Vadodara attended the three-day workshop, which was split into two sessions – days one and two comprising a theory session, followed by a practical rigging session on the third day, during which participants rigged a V-Series system. The live rigging day was held on the grounds of the Holy Trinity Church, where ArrayCalc was used to calibrate the system and R1 provided control between the amplifiers and speakers.
‘We at Ansata have always strived to deliver the latest in cutting edge audio technology from world class brands like d&b audiotechnik to the fraternity here in India. Workshops like these are a decisive step in the direction towards enhancing the capacity and value of knowledge and information available to industry professionals in our country,’ said Mr Lean. ‘We’re proud to have done our bit here, and with the overwhelming positivity that we’ve received in response to this workshop, we’ve decided to follow this up with several more knowledge and education based initiatives in 2017.’
‘Line arrays tend to be complicated and an underestimated aspect of the event technology industry,’ said Anthony Fernandes, owner of Casant Entertainers and one the workshop attendees. ‘Workshops, such as the one held in Mumbai by Ansata, have helped end-users gain a better understanding of cutting-edge technologies such as those offered by d&b audiotechnik, and how it is possible to achieve pristine audio reproduction through a combination of great quality loudspeakers and state-of-the-art software technology.’
Also in attendance was Nixon Johnny, director of NJ’s Sound Machine. ‘By dividing the workshop into both a theory and practical session, Neil and team Ansata successfully managed to cover all the nuances of line array technology in terms of how line arrays work, and how the systems express their sound throughout a venue,’ he said. ‘A big word of appreciation goes to the entire team at Ansata.’
