L-ISA Source Control available on DiGiCo SD consoles

DiGiCo L ISA Screen2

L-Acoustics’ L-ISA Source Control functionality is now natively integrated into DiGiCo’s SD Range of mixing consoles, adding L-ISA’s object-based mixing technology to the console’s control surface.

L-ISA, which stands for Immersive Sound Art, is a breakthrough in immersive audio technology, combining L-Acoustics’ industry-leading sound design and world-class loudspeaker systems with sophisticated processing tools to create a hyperrealistic experience for audiences at live shows, creative events and private residences.

For L-ISA Live applications, the seamless integration of L-ISA Source Control into the DiGiCo SD-Range means that sound engineers will be able to use a familiar workflow on an industry-leading console to manage immersive environments easily and intuitively. With the L-ISA / DiGiCo integration, up to 96 Input Channels can be designated ‘L-ISA channels’, each one allowing the engineer to control pan, width, distance and elevation, as well as a designated aux send, for any given L-ISA source object directly from the mixing console. All L-ISA parameters can be stored in the powerful snapshots engine and recalled in the same way as other console parameters.

Source parameters are shared with the L-ISA Controller over the network and instantaneously converted to the defined speaker layout in the L-ISA Processor. Thanks to the flexibility of L-ISA’s object-based approach, the layout can easily be adapted to location changes whilst maintaining the spatial properties of the mix.

The L-ISA Source Control functionality expands the range of creative choices the mixing engineer can employ simultaneously, ranging from classic stereo or 5.1 controls, for uses such as downmixes or auxes, to the advanced object-based multichannel environment offered by L-ISA.

L-ISA-enabled DiGiCo SD consoles will be available in late April.
