DiGiCo Launches Quantum225 Console

The DiGiCo Quantum225

CHESSINGTON, England — DiGiCo announced its newly launched KLANG:kontrollers (click here for info); and expanded its DiGiCo Quantum Range console, the first Quantum225 consoles, designed to offer the Quantum Processing power and features in a compact and robust worksurface. Sensitive to the hiatus in the large-scale, live touring market, DiGiCo has designed the Quantum225 to be agile and flexible allowing the system to adapt to the demands of a changing world. Specified with the new DQ-Rack with integrated Dante, the new console creates an ideal system for fixed installs and the demands of an AoIP networking environment. Alternatively specified with the MQ-Rack, the system provides the familiar MADI connectivity for a touring/portable system infrastructure, allowing Quantum225 to integrate with an existing infrastructure.

The Quantum225 includes 72 inputs channels with 36 buses + Master Bus and a 12×12 Matrix. A 17-inch, full color, daylight-bright, TFT multitouch screen with the Quantum Dark application (seen before on the Quantum338) is combined with 41 mini TFT’s located across the surface to provide unrivalled user feedback and interaction. The worksurface also has 25 long-throw motorized faders and ample switches and color-coded rotary controls for fast access to channel, DSP parameters and mixing functions.

The rear panel features four MADI ports and dual DMI ports for added connectivity; 8×8 analog inputs and outputs; and four AES channels for local I/O; built-in UB MADI, optional optics and Waves SoundGrid, plus dual PSU’s. Weight is manageable, at 43 kilograms (94.6 pounds).

The Quantum225 also incorporates now familiar features from the existing Quantum Range including Mustard Processing channel strips, Spice Rack plug-in style native FPGA processing options, Nodal Processing and True Solo.

A custom mounting bracket attaches easily to the console’s left-hand panel to accommodate an additional channel or overview screen, a KLANG:kontroller, a laptop or a script for theater applications.

What is unique to Quantum225 is a custom-designed, multi-purpose mounting bracket that attaches quickly and easily to the left-hand panel of the console. This can accommodate an additional channel or overview screen, a KLANG:kontroller be further expanded to fit either a laptop or a script — particularly useful for theater applications, where real estate is at a priority. The bracket can be installed at two angles with quick release to cater for all preferences or applications.

The new compact, 6-rackspace DQ and MQ racks have been designed from the ground up specifically for modern application demands. These feature 48 mic/line inputs, and up to 24 analog outputs or up to eight AES outputs. Clever audio design lets users reconfigure four of the analog line outputs to be either analog outputs or dual AES outputs. This I/O flexibility and other configuration changes are managed from the racks very own TFT Configuration screen. Standard features included onboard dual power supplies for redundancy and 48k Hz or 96k Hz operation.

U.S. pricing is expected to be $30,500.
