Cadac USA Exhibition Tour Rolls into LDI

Ron Lorman, Cadac USA

Following his appointment earlier this year, Cadac USA director of operations Ron Lorman steers the British live mixing console and audio networking company into LDI, following last month's appearances at WFX and the AES. LDI runs November 17 - 19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Cadac is exhibiting in LDI Amplify (booth 3177), the indoor audio pavilion focussing on professional audio equipment and solutions. There the company is promoting its CDC consoles and MegaCOMMS network platform, a dedicated live audio network.

"The Cadac CDC audio system offers an industry leading mixing and networking solution, dedicated to the highest audio quality and performance requirements of live sound production; with significantly lower signal latency and discernably higher audio quality than competing solutions," says Lorman. "CDC MegaCOMMS is a dedicated live production network solution that ensures the superlative audio performance of CDC six and CDC seven series mixing consoles across a complete network."

Both Lorman ron@cadac-sound.com and Rob Hughes, European sales and support manager, rob@cadac-sound.com will be on hand to discuss all aspects of the system and offer a spectacular audio demo.

CDC six and CDC seven mixing consoles combine 23.5" high contrast HD touch screen based control surfaces and CDC OS to provide Cadac's swipeable graphical operator experience; akin to the glass cockpit paradigm in aviation, offering both ease and enhanced speed of operation for professional applications, as well as presenting a less challenging learning curve for less experienced engineers. Cadac's legendary mic preamplifier design is coupled with a time-aligned, phase-coherent mix bus architecture, resulting in unparalleled audio quality from any live -- analog or digital -- mixing console.

The CDC consoles run Cadac's proprietary MegaCOMMS protocol. With the 12 port MegaCOMMS Router it extends to a high performance, audio networking platform, which can be software managed to provide up to 3,072 channels of audio routing, comprising 12 streams of 128 channel, bi-directional audio at 96kHz / 24-bit, including automatic gain compensation when sharing stage racks, while adding only a single sample of latency. Industry leading total through-system propagation delay, from on-stage inputs to outputs, including all console processing, A-D / D-A conversions and three stage internal latency management, is just 37 samples (at 96kHz) - under 400microsecond. MegaCOMMS synchronizes all audio samples before summing, resulting in absolute phase coherency at all outputs.

MegaCOMMS features a range of I/O, interface and bridging components, to enable direct connectivity with other networks and the wider AV world, including CDC I/O 6448, CDC I/O 3216 analog, and CDC MC AES3 digital stageboxes, and the CDC MC Optical Bridge, CDC MC MADI Bridge, and CDC MC Dante Bridge.
