PLASA Show 2017: DiGiCo To Showcase SD12 Console
Since its launch in January, DiGiCo’s SD12 has had success in the international touring market and as the house console on many of the summer’s festivals such as this year’s PLASA Show, which takes place from the Sept. 17 to 19 at Olympia London. The digital solutions manufacturer will celebrate both this and its 15th year of manufacturing digital mixing consoles by showcasing this latest creation alongside both Autograph Sales & installations on stand H10 and SSE Audio Group on stand J20A.
Underlining the acceptance of the SD12 has been its appearance at the Glastonbury, Summerfest in Milwaukee and North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam – where DiGiCo also provided on site representation and support as well as featured all SD12’s at multiple stages. Additionally, artists including George Ezra, London Grammar, Clean Bandit, Aerosmith and The XX are carrying SD12’s as part of their audio packages for their current tours and festival appearances. Adlib Audio’s UK festival package also features two SD12s, which it is deploying for monitor duties.
The SD12 is the culmination of everything that DiGiCo has learned over the last decade and a half and encapsulates the best features of both the SD and S Series. Utilizing 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 is familiar to anyone working in live touring, corporate, installation, House of Worship, theatre or broadcast.
Also on show will be the entry level S21 and S31 from DiGiCo’s S-Series and the SD5.
