Venuetech and Meyer Sound training session deemed a “success”


The 14 September saw the end of a two-day training session held by Meyer Sound and Venuetech at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC). The sessions entitled “Meyer Sound Systems Design and Optimisation” were headed by senior technical support and education specialist, Merliin Van Veen and Sana Romanos, technical services specialist, Middle East and Africa. Audio systems specialists, sound engineers and technicians from the UAE as well as Saudi Arabia and India travelled to Dubai to participate.

Addressing the attendees at the onset of the training course, Ismat Assafiri, systems architect and audio specialist at Venuetech, commented: “The release of MAPP 3D is a significant juncture in the development of sound systems design. We are excited to bring this knowledge to our fellow audio specialists in the region through our partnership with Meyer Sound.”

Andrea Granata, sales manager of Middle East and Africa at Meyer Sound, commented: “When I first attended ‘Sound System Design and Optimisation Training’ it changed my understanding of audio forever. With Venuetech we decided to give the same opportunity to a new generation of technicians, hoping to have a similar positive impact. The training evolved since the old days and was bringing together fundamentals and the latest technological development.”

He continued: “The response of the room, filled with a mix of experienced engineers and young audio enthusiasts, demonstrates that the education that Meyer Sound offers has no equal in the industry.”

The training session explored the relationship between the predictive of the MAPP 3D Sound System Design Tool and actual sound system performance as measured with FFT-based transfer-function analysers. The participants of the training gained insight into generating and comparing data using both MAPP 3D and Compass, in order to help them better understand the correlation between the two. The course’s key objective was for the users to possess a clearer idea of how sound systems behave in both modelled and real space, and with it, a more informed approach to accurately designing and optimising systems using Meyer Sound solutions. The training was followed by a Q&A session with Van Veen and Romanos.

"We decided to offer the training with the intention of sharing pure knowledge on system design. The training gave great insight into a variety of tools that every sound engineer will now have in their pocket when designing a new system” said Alice Macaluso, Meyer Sound brand manager at Venuetech. “There is a vast amount of information and knowledge out there, and we hope to lead our fellow audio specialists and systems architects to these resources and offer them support when needed," she further commented.

Chief operating officer, Abdul Assafiri, shared: “We are delighted to be at the forefront of educating the professional audio specialists and systems designers in the GCC by facilitating this unique opportunity. We are already making plans for our next Meyer Sound and Venuetech training session.”
