AMS Neve continue to set important industry bench-marks at both the Film & Music production levels. Few brands can boast that an estimated 80 per cent of the world’s leading music artists have recorded on AMS Neve equipment and over 70 per cent of all major Hollywood productions are scored & mixed on the Neve DFC (Digital Film Consoles).

Most recently, the much heralded and long awaited James Cameron opus Avatar (which represents a tremendous leap in technological progress as the first major feature length film in 3D) demanded that new industry bench-marks be set.

The SAE Group understand this need and have solidly aligned with us to deliver AMS Neve equipment and simultaneously align the education & training needed at the highest level globally."

Tom Misner, Founder of the SAE Group said, “Notwithstanding the very important global demands, the US market in particular continues to represent about 50 per cent of the world’s film and music industry production revenues. SAE is increasingly applying resources and is well-positioned to bring into line future industry and technological demands with an SAE education. To this end, SAE will continue to specify and roll out AMS Neve brand equipment to all new SAE Institute facilities projected for the US market especially. Many SAE graduates will seek positions in the United States.”
