Ina EXPERT Invests In Yamaha Nuage


The Institut National de L'audiovisuel (Ina) is one of the most important and influential multimedia and training organisations in France. For nearly 40 years it has been one of the top European training centres for AV and, more recently, the digital media professions. Recognising the importance of Yamaha’s flagship Nuage system to the audio post-production industry, Ina has recently added Nuage to its training portfolio.

Ina has a wide remit, including custodianship of France’s radio and television archives and co-productions with broadcasters throughout the world. One of its most important facilities is Ina EXPERT, which trains 5500 students and professionals every year using the latest production technology. Its investment in Nuage underlines that commitment and recognises the radical re-defining that the new Yamaha system brings to audio post-production.

Yamaha and Ina EXPERT have enjoyed a close relationship as education partners since 2005. The announcement that the latter has been appointed as Yamaha France’s official training partner for Nuage was made at a jointly-organised Pro Audio Forum, attended by over 100 audio consultants, operators and integrators.
