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 several 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. The company says: “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” 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.”
