DiGiCo’s new Remote Record Interface, part of the DiGiCo Solutions range, is due for launch at Prolight+Sound 2011 and establishes the UK manufacturer as more than a console company.

The Remote Record Interface provides a remote recording solution for all applications in native Mac or PC formats. It allows you to work directly with your preferred DAW and is made up of two parts:

  • DiGiCo-Control      software. This is free of      charge and compatible with both Mac and PC. It allows you to control and      setup SD Racks or D Racks via USB. When used in conjunction with the Dante      DMI, it also allows control of the SD or D Rack via the standard Ethernet      port on a computer.

  • The Dante DMI      (DiGiCo Multichannel Interface). This is a CAT5 solution which connects onto a high speed FPGA buss,      allowing you to plug an SD or D Rack into a router/switcher, which can      then be plugged into a computer (Mac or PC) Ethernet port. It not only      allows you to control the rack – including the high quality pre amp gains      and 48v - but to access audio data and interface it with your DAW of      choice for recording.

A dual rack option, for example, utlises two D-Racks and would allow you to have 64 channels of audio to control and record to a simple laptop. Redundancy is also possible by simply plugging in another computer (with DiGiCo control and DAW software installed) to the router.

An added, but significant, benefit is the ability to control all functions of the rack utilising a building’s standard network infrastructure, without the need for any special equipment.

This creates a fresh approach to multiple recording applications, including broadcast, live touring, studio recording, rehearsal room and multiple fixed installation environments - with no need for a console or other large-scale interface.

“This is a big move for DiGiCo,” says Gordon. “We feel that it is a clear statement that we are not only a console manufacturer, but a digital solutions company.”
