Avolites launched its latest console in it’s Diamond 4 Series, the “D4 Elite”, at LDI 2002.
The console is streamlined to offer the maximum power and functionality in the minimum physical space, recognizing the ever-growing need in all applications to use FOH and control spaces expediently.
The D4 Elite offers all the features of the full sized Diamond 4, in a smaller chassis with 14 submasters and 96 assigned playbacks, with direct access to 96 fixtures via Legend Cells (re-assignable preset playbacks).
Both D4 products have been developed in parallel. Avolites wanted to offer a physically smaller console in the range that still had the flexibility and versatility for which it’s products are renowned.
The D4 and the D4 Elite are fully disk compatible, and the Elite features all the software functions of the larger desk, addressing the whole spectrum of production situations.
For those with a relaxed programming schedule, the D4 Elite’s direct access control surface offers intuitive and fluid programming, that will realize the full potential of the lighting design. Conversely, for those time-pressed moments when an LD has just minutes to programme a spectacular show – the D4 Elite offers immediate access to a powerful ‘instant’ toolkit.
The electronic legending increases speed of set-up and allows the automatic configuration of a huge programming Palette.
The D4 Elite significantly expands the number of Palettes, injecting yet more potency into this important feature. Greater processing power ensures faster access and response time for all functions. Instant Access features like the live recall of ‘Palettes’ during the show is a hallmark of Avo operators. This single feature has contributed to Avolites consoles dominating festival multi-user control set ups everywhere.
Increased software capabilities and dual VGA monitors make the console even more versatile, logical and fast to programme. Naturally, the D4 Elite also retains the hands-on intuitive feel that’s made Avolites’ desks the most popular ‘live’ operation consoles worldwide.
