DiGiCo shows Quantum 7 at ProLight+Sound 2018
Germany – DiGiCo has announced the working debut of its Quantum 7 software at ProLight + Sound 2018, which will ship at the end of June.
DiGiCo’s Quantum 7 is 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 further flexibility.
Quantum 7 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.
Nodal Processing means that for the first time processing can be applied to any node on the auxiliary section of the console, allowing engineers to send unique processing on each send from a single, or multiple channels. This level of creativity will allow engineers to tailor and deliver dedicated mixes that were simply not possible before Quantum 7.
Coupled with Nodal Processing is the new True Solo system that allows the operator’s monitoring system to replicate almost any section of the console, and how that source is being processed and heard. This saves time and speeds up the process of managing the potentially daunting number of channels and busses available to the user.
“One of our key goals at DiGiCo is to continually develop innovative solutions whilst ensuring our current consoles are future proofed where possible” says DiGiCo MD James Gordon. “A great example of this is the new Quantum 7 which can be retro-fitted into any existing SD7, which means current SD7 owners can take advantage of these developments and continue to make the unrivalled return on investment DiGiCo stands for.”
