Frankfurt, Germany (March 14, 2014)—DiGiCo has implemented a new version of Optocore for all optically enabled DiGiCo consoles. This new format will provide connectivity to X6R, DD2FR and DD4MR units, allowing Optocore devices to live on DiGiCo’s optical loop.
Presented at DiGiCo’s stand at Pro Light + Sound, the companies are showing how X6R and V3R mic preamps can be controlled directly from the console. Using a fiber connection between the DiGiCo and Optocore booths, all visitors can see the remote X6R mic preamp at the Optocore booth controlled from the console on DiGiCo’s booth.
“Users can add a simple Optocore 16-channel X6R-FX interface to the DiGiCo network to provide additional I/O connectivity together with Ethernet and RS485/422,” said Optocore application engineer, Maciek. “They can also use Optocore DD2FR-FX and DD4MR-FX MADI interfaces to increase the number of MADI ports available on the console.”
DiGiCo is the only console manufacturer to benefit from OEM Optocore and is running the native 2.21 Optocore protocol.
