Cadac Electronics will announce its new S-Digital mixing console at the PLASA 2006 exhibition (stand #AA21), which will take place September 10 through 13, 2006 at Earl's Court in London. The Cadac S-Digital is scheduled to enter production in October 2006, and its full specifications and technical details, including pricing, will be announced at PLASA 2006.
The Cadac S-Digital is designed primarily for live theater applications. In a departure from conventional digital console design, the S-Digital is specifically conceived to reflect the surface architecture of Cadac's J-Type analog console, offering a digital alternative to that product.
At PLASA 2006, Cadac will also show its 19-inch Digital Series range, spotlighting the Digital Series Stage Rack. Combining the M16 remote controlled microphone amplifier and the X16 MADI merge unit, the Digital Series Stage Rack offers a solution to applications requiring a comprehensive multi-channel audio distribution system across both analog and digital domains for live sound, TV and radio broadcast, fixed installations and recording applications.
The M16/X16 combination provides 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 designed for installations that require multiple MADI interface conversions or additional routing capability.
