Cadac to Unveil the S-Digital Console at PLASA 2006
Cadac Electronics plc will be launching its new S-Digital mixing console at the PLASA 2006 exhibition, taking place from 10-13 September at Earl's Court in London.
The Cadac S-Digital is designed primarily for live theatre applications, building on the company's 20-year history at the forefront of theatre sound. In a major departure from conventional paradigms in digital console design, the S-Digital is specifically conceived to reflect the surface architecture of Cadac's industry standard J-Type analogue console.
The S-Digital combines the instant usability and familiarity of an analogue console with the acclaimed build quality, sound, ease of operation, reliability and unequalled return on investment that are the hallmarks of a Cadac console. It therefore offers sound designers, producers and theatre owners a credible digital alternative to the Cadac J-Type analogue console, and sets a new benchmark in digital console design for live sound applications.
The Cadac S-Digital is scheduled to enter production in October 2006, and its full specification and technical details, including pricing, will be announced at PLASA 2006.
Also on show at PLASA 2006 will be Cadac's 19" Digital Series range, with the spotlight on the Digital Series Stage Rack. Combining the M16 Remote Controlled Microphone Amplifier and the X16 MADI Merge Unit, the Digital Series Stage Rack provides a unique solution to applications requiring a comprehensive multi-channel audio distribution system, across both analogue and digital domains, for live sound, TV and radio broadcast, fixed installations and recording applications.
The M16/X16 combination underlines its application flexibility by providing an alternative front-end option for remote and fixed recording systems. The X16 can also operate independently to provide up to four 1 in/2 out distribution amplifiers. This feature enables four independent optical MADI streams (of up to 64 channels each) to be made available on both an optical and coaxial output connector, and is an ideal choice for any installation that requires multiple MADI interface conversions or additional routing capability.
The combination of the hallmark Cadac audio quality and enhanced operational flexibility is proving popular in all live sound markets, underlining Cadac's continuing commitment both to superior audio and innovation.
