DiGiCo: Quantum225 Compact Audio Console

Stage Directions • Tools of the Trade • February 12, 2021

The DiGiCo Quantum225 console is designed to bring 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 our changing world. Specified with the new DQ-Rack with integrated Dante and you have a perfect system for AV installation and the demands of an AoIP networking environment. Alternatively specify with the MQ-Rack and get the familiar MADI connectivity for your touring infrastructure allowing Quantum225 to integrate with your existing infrastructure. Here’s a video introduction to the Quantum225 console:

The Quantum225 includes 72 input channels with 36 busses + Master Buss and a 12×12 Matrix. There are four MADI ports and dual DMI ports for added connectivity, 8×8 analog and four AES channels for local I/O, built-in UB MADI, optional optics and Waves SoundGrid, plus dual PSU.

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

There is a 17-inch, full-color, daylight-bright TFT multitouch screen with the Quantum Dark application, seen before on the Quantum338, combined with 41 mini TFT’s located across the surface to provide unrivaled user feedback and interaction.

What is unique to Quantum225 is a custom-designed, multipurpose 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, or be further expanded to fit either a laptop or a script – particularly useful for theatre applications. The bracket can be installed at two angles with quick release to cater for all preferences or applications.

The new Quantum225 features a unique adjustable bracket to accommodate a channel or overview screen, KLANG:kontroller, laptop or script

DiGiCo’s new Dante-native DQ-Rack

The new MADI-equipped MQ-Rack from DiGiCo

The new compact, 6U DQ and MQ racks have been designed from the ground up specifically for modern application demands. They feature 48 mic/line inputs, up to 24 analog outputs or up to eight AES outputs. Clever audio design allows the user to 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 include Dual PSU and 48k or 96k operation.
