Avid and Dolby team up for Pro Tools Atmos course

Posted on: Wednesday 21st of April 2021

Avid and DAVID Pro Tools Surround Pannerolby today announced a joint venture to launch the first Pro Tools-centric Dolby Atmos training course and certification. Accessed through the Avid Learning Partners program, the self-paced, blended training course will cover the integration of the Dolby Atmos Renderer with Avid’s flagship audio software.

Comprised of 40 hours of self-learning and 18 hours of instructor-led training, held over 3 days, the course concludes with a professional certification exam. Upon completion of the coursework and passing the exam, candidates will earn the Avid Certified Professional: Pro Tools | Dolby Atmos certification credential. It serves to allow Pro Tools mixers to recognize the components of a Dolby Atmos content creation studio, and outline workflows for creating immersive audio in Pro Tools. Students will also learn techniques for working with Dolby Atmos beds and objects, Pro Tools session management, Dolby Atmos Renderer configurations, and final delivery formats.

Rob D’Amico, sr. director of product marketing, audio solutions at Avid, believes the course “provides core learning opportunities to fill the need for Dolby Atmos training and validates the skills and competencies of sound technicians and engineers to prepare and deliver Dolby Atmos content,” adding that it addresses “the lack of formal learning related to immersive audio.”

For its part, Dolby’s Rob France (director, customer support), says the company is happy to be building on its strategic collaboration with Avid, and that “the timing couldn’t be better” with content creators and streaming platforms are “demanding more content be created in Dolby.”

The training course, PT210D Pro Tools Dolby Atmos Production, is available from Avid.
