DiGiCo’s SD5 with Stealth Digital Processing is packed with advanced features that have been throughout the DiGiCo range of SD digital consoles. Sitting comfortably above the SD10 and below the SD7, the SD5 is a perfect addition to our growing range of digital mixers. As standard the SD5 is fitted with a 2GB fiber optic network and can run up to 448 channels of I/O at 96KHz across up to 14 SD Series racks with the addition of 56 console-to-console tie lines. Three redundant MADI ports complete the lineup. And it’s even quieter. No more fans on power supplies, instead we have replaced them with large heat sinks making the SD5 one of the quietest consoles we have ever made. Three large touch sensitive display screens dominate the console, providing fast and easy access to all of the SD5’s functions. The center section of the desk has been redesigned — the screen now sits recessed, bringing it, and access to the macro, snapshot, headphone and talkback controls nearer the operator. The large TFT screens coupled with familiar Hidden till Lit (HTL) rotary controllers and Quick Access Function Buttons allow either seasoned users or those new to DiGiCo consoles the ability to run the desk confidently and easily in a very short space of time.


The latest model with enhanced visibility and operability

  • Three screens of 15 inches high visibility with high visibility. Easy to grasp the channel and the whole system, less layer operation, so you can operate without waste.
  • The two-meter bridges can display signal levels such as mono, stereo, LCR, 5.1 ch as well as each input / output channel.
  • Focus on the central part of frequently accessed macro keys and snapshots. Operation at close range from the mix position is realized.
  • Establish smooth operability with overwhelming processing capacity by "stealth digital processing". Operation by multiple operators is also possible, and it is possible to correspond to a complicated system.

High performance to support sampling rate 192 kHz

  • It is able to cope with the high-resolution sampling rate of 192 kHz and realizes high-dimensional recording. (Operation up to 96 kHz)

Easy construction of redundant system

  • Two hot-swappable power supplies are installed, and it is possible to respond instantly to any troubles.
  • When MADI is used at 48 kHz, three terminals function as redundant. Building a network with Optical preserves the signal flow of the entire system even if trouble such as disconnection of a cable or disconnection of a terminal occurs at one place in the network.

Silent design

  • Two PSUs adopt a heat dissipation method by heat sink and realize further quietness. It is possible to install it near the auditorium.

Beauty Surprising Surface

  • Channels can be clearly identified by the LEDs arranged around the encoder. Maintaining outstanding visibility even under sunlight outdoors, full-color surfaces shining in dark places are extremely beautiful.

Remote control application software for iPad SD App available

  • Wirelessly control SD Series. Remote control is possible while listening to the actual sound at the stage or audience seats.
