Cadac has announced a new flagship console in the form of the CDC seven-s.
The CDC seven-s replaces original CDC seven and inaugural CDC eight to become the series flagship.
The CDC seven-s expands the 96 input count of the original CDC seven to 128. Additionally, the new model ups the bus count to 64, of which 56 are assignable in FOH mode and 62 in Monitor Mode. The new console also features a number of additional hardware buttons, aimed at speeding up navigation.
It retains the physical frame and control surface configuration of the CDC seven (with additional new hardware buttons) with dual 23.5” 16:9 hi-definition operating touchscreens and their associated rotary encoders, a mid mounted 6.5” system control touchscreen, and 36 motorised faders. The CDC ‘human interface’ and feature set are designed to combine in aiding the workflow and allowing the engineer full creative freedom, unhindered by operation of the technology.
Cadac marketing manager James Godbehear said, “Launching CDC seven-s at Prolight+Sound and then showing it immediately afterwards at PLASA Focus in the UK, there was immediate appreciation of the increase in I/O capability, plus the additional features of Version 5 CDC OS along with the improved GUI. CDC seven-s offers all of these improvements over the original CDC seven at no additional cost.”
