Forthcoming February ISE 2019 will see world-leading high-end digital audio solution manufacturer, DiGiCo, give visitors to the show another opportunity to get up close and personal with its 4REA4 installed audio solution, as well as experience the proven power and flexibility of its acclaimed SD Range and S Series digital mixing consoles.
4REA4 is designed to meet the expanding performance requirements of large entertainment venues, houses of worship, theatres and shared stages at festivals and music venues.
At the heart of the system is the 4REA4 processing engine with DiGiCo connectivity options and powerful 4REA4 control software, providing routing, processing and mix control that allows performance areas to expand across an installation.
The 4REA4 processing engine rack has four dedicated mix areas, or zones, each with its own stereo master output, CGs, and allocated FX. 128 input channel and 48 buss output processing strips allow independently allocated processing to whichever area as required.
Managing the mixing and routing of each individual local performance area are a range of premium designed hardware control panels and external I/O units, that work in conjunction with the 4REA4 processing engine and control software.
Ethernet connected controller options include the wall mounting single rotary ACONTROL1 with a TFT display for small area performance management, and the ACONTROL8 with eight 100m faders designed for more complex mix and function control.
Local I/O boxes are managed via proprietary Ethernet or Dante connectivity for extended reach across a facility, with options including the new A168 STAGE floor rack and the A164 WALL LCD box, both providing mic and line level connectivity to ensure a premium 96kHz audio experience across the most demanding performance venues.
