After being an Avid agent for the last 10 years, LS Media has become the exclusive Canadian distributor for Avid’s live sound solutions, and it has joined the select Avid Learning Partner (ALP) program providing training in the use of Avid products.

Managed by national sales director Hugo Larin, Montreal-based LS Media, as Avid’s exclusive Canadian distributor for live sound, supplies customers with Avid live sound systems, including the Avid VENUE | S6L mixing system.

In addition, LS Media has become an Avid Learning Partner (ALP) joining other training organizations in the industry that provide training on Avid products. The partner program provides content, curriculum, and certification developed by Avid’s product experts and course developers.

“We are proud to have been selected as an ALP, and the first certification we will be offering is VE400 ACSR Avid VENUE | S6L system support,” says Hugo Larin.  The two-day certification, targeted to sound technicians, sound engineers and Avid live sound resellers, is a practical workshop that provides hands-on training in all aspects of installing, configuring, maintaining, troubleshooting and supporting the Avid VENUE | S6L system.  It will prepare candidates for the Avid Certified Support Representatives Avid VENUE | S6L certification exam.

“The course will give students a real-world ‘out of the box’ experience in installing and configuring Avid VENUE | S6L hardware and software components from the ground up,” Larin explains.  “They will get an overview of general operational procedures from a technical perspective, as well as more advanced diagnostics and troubleshooting techniques.  Students will also learn how to integrate Avid VENUE | S6L with Avid Pro Tools(r) and broader live sound environments.”
