Technology Specialist in User Services for the Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business Ron Romano recently hosted an event on campus for Focusrite, an audio equipment manufacturer. The event was held in the R. Milton and Denice Johnson Center Large Theater on September 15 and was centered around training the audience on the uses of Focusrite’s audio interface RedNet.

The event began with a training session led by Audinate Senior Technical Sales Engineer Bernie Farkus on the Dante audio networking solution and how RedNet harnesses its power. Farkus’s talk was followed by a presentation on how Belmont utilizes RedNet and Dante, led by Romano. The RedNet product line was then presented by the RedNet National Accounts Manager Kurt Howell. To end the event, the audience heard from guest speaker Phil Reynolds, systems engineer for Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age.

In an article published in Lighting & Sound America, Howell mentioned how fitting Belmont was for this event. “We are happy to share Focusrite’s extensive knowledge on audio-over-IP to the students in the audio program at Belmont University and members of the extended community of audio professionals in Nashville,” said Howell. “Belmont provided the perfect backdrop, as they have recently made RedNet the backbone of their networking infrastructure across their facilities.”
