British based industry leading digital sound console manufacturers DiGiCo in partnership with their leading distributor Stage Electrics visited the University 2nd March to deliver a training session to 12 students.
The consoles of choice for numerous high profile events such as U2’s 360 tour, the Take That Progress Tour and Live 8, it was a privilege for the Live Event cohort to get some hands-on experience with the company’s SD range. Students had a chance to use various surfaces, all of which share a common operating system with different hardware capability dictating numbers of inputs and outputs and signal processing capability.
Tim Shaxson, technical sales manager for DiGiCo said “I was delighted to have been asked to present our range of consoles. With the help of Jamie at Stage Electrics who supplied an SD11, SD9 and SD8 and the kind loan of an SD9 console from Ben Cox at Origin, we were able to give the students a lot of exposure to our range which I’m sure will put them in good stead for the summer placements. The fact that the students so quickly picked the desk up is testament to how easy the desks are to use.”
Sam Jones, a final year student commented “The DiGiCo Training day was a fantastic opportunity for us to interact with the products of a market leading company. Tim and Jamie’s training was greatly received and gave all of us a great insight into the operation of the consoles”.
