Cadac has announced details of a clutch of initial key sales of the new CDC six now that the console has started shipping to customers across Europe and Asia.
Since its launch at Prolight + Sound in April 2015, the CDC six has received interest from distributors in Benelux, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Sweden and the UK, as well as several Asian territories, including China.
The latest addition however is in Poland, where CADAC’s Polish distributor, Tommex, has installed the medium-format live sound console in the Miejskie Centrum Kultury (MCK) in Plonsk, as part of the modernisation of the town’s cultural centre.
The Tommex installation – the first in Poland – is in MCK’s Kalejdoskop Cinema, a multipurpose hall. The MCK facility also features workshops, offices, a recording studio, conference room, dance studio and gallery. The CDC six and two MegaCOMMS connected CDC I/O 3216 stageboxes were chosen by the MCK Plonsk in a tender, providing a system configuration that met the venue’s objectives and exceeded the project’s technical design specification. The CADAC system provides a number of application possibilities for productions and events, required by both the centre’s own technical staff and visiting sound engineers.
“Due to the simple and transparent interface, operation of the console turned out to be trivially simple,” said Krzysztof Dembicki from MCK Plonsk, “After a short training session I was able to operate the console without any additional help. Everything is logically arranged and I’m sure that none of the sound engineers visiting our centre will have any problem with its operation, and they will also have the chance to listen to just how fantastic it sounds."
The CDC six is based around a further development of CADAC’s advanced, highly acclaimed gesture-operation user interface, and with the same audio performance and low latency as the CDC eight, the CDC six looks set to represent ‘a major ergonomic advancement in user operation’, according to the manufacturer.
