Allen & Heath recently conducted an iLive User Certification in the Chicago metro area, with more than 60 attendees participating, including the staff from the Chicago Hard Rock Café, a recent iLive purchaser; and in the Minneapolis metro area, with more than 40 attendees participating. The user certification was based around the iLive Fixed format series and features a 4-hour certification course on programming, networking and overall operation of Allen & Heath's iLive Digital Mixing System. Attendees included local dealers, production companies, end users and consultants.

"We have received an overwhelming response to these hands on mixing clinics," says Michael Palmer, sales manager for Allen & Heath USA. "The opportunity to be able to sit users down at the system and go through the nuts and bolts of this amazingly flexible system is priceless.

"With the networking capabilities of the iLive system, we have live multitrack demos connected via our new Dante card into the Master system, and all other systems are receiving audio on the network," Palmer explains. "Upwards of 10 systems have been used at this training, all connected with simple Cat-5 cables. The users have all been amazed at how easy it is to build and design a multiple-console networked system, and it really simplifies the teaching aspect of this system.

"We have seen tremendous sales increases based around these training and will continue to deploy these across the country," Palmer concludes. "In early 2012 we will be launching iLive Advanced System Certification, which will be a level-2 class."
