One of the undisputed highlights of this year’s show was DiGiCo’s working debut of their ground-breaking Quantum 7 processing.
Quantum 7 has been developed with seventh generation FPGA devices that further expand audio processing power, and ultimately allows DiGiCo to provide its users with an unrivalled amount of flexibility. It expands an SD7 to over 600 channels of processing in 96kHz operation that can be connected in the outside world to approaching 3000 potential I/Os. The engine is also equipped with eight newly assignable MADI connections and two DMI slots (DiGiCo Multi-Channel Interface) for AoIP and other connectivity options from the complete family of DMI card options. There are other powerful enhancements, too, including Nodal Processing and True Solo.
In addition to a range of new solutions on show, including the 4ERA4, first revealed at ISE in February, DiGiCo has launched a software upgrade, which adds new features to DiGiCo’s range of SD consoles including Snapshot Groups, Recall Scope and Auto-Update Scope, Outputs AFL option and new Panning Type.
“We never stand still at DiGiCo as these exciting latest releases at PL&S 2018 testify, and our development team is always working hard to ensure we deliver the right solutions for our clients,” comments DiGiCo MD, James Gordon.
