Describing it as ‘sensitive to the hiatus in the large-scale, live touring market’, DiGiCo has released the Quantum225 mixing console – designed to be ‘agile and flexible, allowing the system to adapt to the demands of our changing world’.

DiGiCo Quantum225Specified with the new DQ-Rack with integrated Dante, the Quantum225 system is optimized to meet A/V installation and the demands of an AoIP networking environment. Alternatively, with the MQ-Rack and Madi connectivity, it fits touring requirements to integrate with an existing infrastructure.

The Quantum225 offers 72 inputs channels with 36 buses plus a master bus and 12x12 matrix. There are four Madi ports and dual DMI ports for further connectivity, 8x8 analogue and four AES channels for local I/O, built-in UB Madi, optional optics and Waves SoundGrid, plus dual PSU.

The Quantum225 also incorporates features familiar from the existing Quantum range, including Mustard Processing channel strips, Spice Rack plug-in style native FPGA processing options, Nodal Processing and True Solo. There is a 17-inch, full-colour, daylight bright, TFT multitouch screen with the Quantum Dark application, seen before on the Quantum338, combined with 41 mini TFTs across the surface for operator feedback and interaction.

Quantum225 also uses a multi-purpose mounting bracket that attaches quickly and easily to the left-hand panel of the console to accommodate an additional channel or overview screen, a Klang:controller, or be further expanded to fit either a laptop or a script – particularly suited to theatre applications. The bracket can be installed at two angles with quick release to cater for all preferences or applications.

The 6U-high DQ and MQ racks have been specifically for modern application demands. They feature 48 mic/line inputs, up to 24 analogue outputs or up to eight AES outputs. Clever audio design allows the user to reconfigure four of the analogue line outputs to be either analogue 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 Dual PSU and 48kHz or 96kHz operation.
