DiGiCo announced a 2004 world demonstration tour of the D5 digital mixing system with a Renkus-Heinz PowerNet Series self-powered P.A. system.
The D5 system, which was expanded last October at AES New York with the launch of the D5T theater version, will be put through its paces at a variety of locations worldwide throughout the year for sound engineers, sound designers, rental companies and other clients.
The Renkus-Heinz system will also be used to provide real-life audio playback in the DiGiCo factory in Scotland and its head office demonstration suites in the south of England.
"We intend to take the D5 system all over the world this year to rental companies, theaters and even festivals," said DiGiCo marketing director Dave Webster, "and rather than hiring P.A. systems locally, we decided, for the sake of consistency, to use a Renkus-Heinz PN121M system with a PN121 subwoofer, which fits the bill perfectly and sounds transparent—just like the D5!"
The first appearances of the complete system will be on a weekly series of Open Days once DiGiCo completes its forthcoming head office move to new premises in Surrey, with dates to be announced shortly.
