The upcoming ICON integrated console from Digidesign features the all-new D-Control tactile worksurface, Pro Tools|HD Accel as its core DSP engine, and modular HD audio interfaces for analog and digital I/O. ICON empowers operators to accomplish every aspect of a project -- recording, editing, mixing, and processing -- complete with integrated video and delivery. ICON will begin shipping during NAB in April 2004.

In addition to supporting mixes up to 24-bit/192 kHz in 7.1 surround, ICON is backed by Pro Tools recording and editing software. Every element of a session is recallable, enabling operators to switch out even the most complex sessions in minutes. The integrated console features touch-sensitive controls, a wide range of visual mixing feedback, dedicated center section and per-channel control over all processing functions and routing, global automation capabilities, and full studio and control room monitoring.

ICON is a completely custom-configurable audio production environment. Options include expandable analog and digital I/O, integrated remote mic preamps, effects processing plug-ins and software options, Avid picture support, and comprehensive synchronization and machine control options.

Detailed information on the new ICON integrated console will be posted on the Digidesign Web site on Friday, March 26, 2004.
