Digigram has revealed details of a ‘significant’ OEM deal with digital console manufacturer Innovason for its AQONDA EtherSound stagebox. The result is the 16-in/16-out SR-16 (pictured).

Described as offering all of the AQONDA functionality and sound quality in an Innovason ‘skin’, the SR-16 is remotely controllable from the Innovason Eclipe and Eclipse GT consoles, both from their GUI and control surfaces. It is compatible with existing and upcoming EtherSound set-ups, and there is no limitation to the number of devices that may be controlled.

Alternatively, SR-16 may be controlled using any of the available EtherSound software management programmes. Eclipse is also capable of detecting and controlling a Digigram AQONDA as if it were an SR-16. (Even in its original factory format, AQONDA is remotely controllable via Soundcraft, Yamaha and Studer digital consoles, as well as Innovason.)

Digigram’s EtherSound product manager, Joffrey Heyraud, commented: “It is a perfect complement to [Innovason’s] existing range of stage racks, and a really cost-effective way for their clients to increase channel count and control incrementally. Furthermore – and this is the same for any OEM deal, and why it can be so advantageous – all the product development had already been done, thus reducing drastically development costs and time to market, the product fully road-tested, and the cherry on the cake was that it was already compatible with their consoles! It was a complete no-brainer for Innovason, and a win-win situation for everybody.”

Innovason’s product manager, Hervé de Caro, added: “The quality of Digigram’s mic preamps in the AQONDA units is outstanding, so we had no hesitation in adopting this technology as a worthy partner to our existing solutions. As a result, our clients have even more options at their fingertips and we are secure in the knowledge that we are offering a quality solution.”
