British audio solutions manufacturer DiGiCo is set to show its entire range of SD
and S Series consoles at both Prolight+Sound and NAB this year, as well as reveal
a number of exciting new developments and upgrades.
As well as the already familiar SD range, from the flagship SD7 to the compact
SD11, and S Series’ S21 and S31, DiGiCo will be showing its latest console, the
SD12. This is the culmination of everything the DiGiCo team has learned during its
15 years of manufacturing, which encapsulates the best features of both the SD and
S Series. Utilising the latest generation of Super FPGA, it is compact in size, but
delivers the power and capability that is now synonymous with DiGiCo consoles.
With dual 15-inch digital touchscreens – previously only seen on the SD7 and SD5 –
which provide 24 channels in one view, dual operator mode and the ability for the
right-hand screen to be the Master, as well as advanced connectivity via optional
DMI cards, the SD12 maintains a workflow that will be familiar to anyone working
in live touring, corporate, installation, House of Worship, theatre or broadcast.
The SD12 features 72 input channels with full processing, 36 aux/group busses with
full processing, a 12 x 8 matrix with full processing, LR/LCR buss with full
processing, 12 stereo FX units, 16 Graphic EQs, 119 Dynamic EQs, 119 multiband
compressors and 119 DiGi-TuBes, 12 Control Groups (VCA) and SD Series Stealth
Core 2 software, making it compatible with all other SD Series sessions.
“We revealed the SD12 at NAMM and ISE, covering both sides of the Atlantic. Since
this global launch, our challenge has moved on to production, as we keep up with
the inrush of orders. As the SD12 delivers unrivalled control and audio
performance, the console has been extremely well received by existing and new
customers to DiGiCo alike, so manufacturing has really had to step up the pace to
meet the demand. It’s a nice problem to have and one we’re hoping will continue in
the coming months,’ says DiGiCo MD James Gordon. “And, because we never rest
at DiGiCo, we’ve also got a number of new and exciting developments to reveal at
both PL+S and NAB.’
DiGiCo will be at Hall 3.1, Stand F50 at Prolight+Sound and at the Central Hall,
Stand C3118 at NAB.
