DiGiCo recently announced the release of its new SD App through Apple’s App Store, which is compatible with all consoles in the SD Range and allows users to take advantage of both Apple and DiGiCo’s touch screen technology.

This means that your iPad becomes a remote control surface and also an expansion of the control surface. The app takes the existing feature set and presents it in a new way to take advantage of the extra screen - allowing engineers to implement specific functions dedicated for FOH or Monitors.

Aimed at installation and touring applications, the DiGiCo SD App includes a number of dedicated screens that open up the iPad surface to a selection of the consoles’ functionality.

For example, there are eight macros available on the hardware buttons of an SD9, but by connecting the iPad via the DiGiCo SD App, a large number of user-defined buttons will be available; these can reside on the iPad screen, allowing for quick access, while the console remains clear to mix the show on.

“The SD App adds a new level of versatility to our SD consoles,” says DiGiCo’s David Webster. “It makes mixing a complex show, or working with an extensive installation even easier than it was before.”
