CEDIA and HAA partner for home theatre calibration workshop24 September 2012
Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association CEDIA has partnered with the HAA (Home Acoustic Alliance) to provide a dedicated audio calibration course which will take place at the HQ of Bowers & Wilkins in Worthing from 16-19 October 2012.
The HAA Audio Calibration course is available with options for delegates to attend one, two or all four days of education and become HAA Level 1 and Level 2 certified.
The first day of the course (16 October) will introduce the concept of audio calibration, looking at Sonic Evaluation, Component Verification, Design Adjustment and Electronic Calibration. The “hands-on” workshop will teach all the skills required for success up to basic pre-pro settings and the creation of a TurboCal report, enabled by the AVPro software.
Students then have the option to further their learning by attending the one-day HAA Level I Certification Seminar on 17 October. With a curriculum covering theory and practical information, this session will focus on solutions to common installation problems. Recognised by THX, Harman International, Triad, SpectraCal and many others, this course will change the way dealers approach their business and provide a clear return on investment.
On 18 and 19 October delegates can attend the HAA Level II Certification Workshop. This two day intensive curriculum provides the practical components to HAA education in Sound Quality Management, connecting the theory, technology and experience of great sonic performance. Successful candidates for the HAA Level II Certification join an elite group of industry professionals who demonstrate the high performance top of our industry.
“CEDIA is excited to offer such a relevant and in-depth workshop for home cinema specialists,” says Matt Dodd, CEDIA’s education chair. “This HAA Workshop is integral for anyone within the custom install industry keen to stay at the top of the game and provides the opportunity for dealers to learn new audio calibration skills which they can apply directly and instantly.”
The presenter will be Gerry Lemay from the Home Acoustic Alliance who will be teaching the course.
