DiGiCo announced the launch of the next generation of large-format live audio production mixing consoles. As one would expect from a brand-new console from DiGiCo, it has been designed from the ground up. Familiar, yet different, and with improved audio quality via enhanced algorithms, Quantum852 delivers a massive leap forward in processing power. It is neatly packaged with 1000-nit LCD screens for full daylight operation and a newly designed worksurface, giving users the confidence that, true to the DiGiCo ethos, Quantum852 has been designed not just for now, but for the future.
With that firmly in mind, Quantum852 also includes a raft of eco credentials. Its lightweight alloy construction reduces weight, which in turn helps mitigate its environmental impact during transportation. It has a reduced operating power, thermal cooling fans along with convection cooling, and temperature-dependent cooling. Further reducing Quantum852’s environmental footprint is the inclusion of sustainable and recyclable materials.
Quantum852’s tech spec is equally impressive. Featuring fully redundant processing, each engine is powered by five of the latest seventh-generation FPGAs and next-generation SHARC DSP processors. Quantum852’s input count increases to 384 mono channels, with 192 Aux / Sub-Group busses, plus the familiar LR / LCR / 5.1 Master busses. It comes with a 64 x 64 Processing Matrix, 36 Control Groups, two Solo busses and 64 FX Rack slots. There are 48 Graphic EQs, 384 Nodal Processors, 128 Mustard Processors and 32 Spice Racks.
