Making its debut InfoComm appearance this year was UK console manufacturer Cadac, with its CDC eight and CDC four desks taking centre stage in Vegas.
Ben Millson, Cadac International Sales manager, declared at the end of the show: “The CDC eight has impressed no end, with many sound engineers and installers declaring it to be the best product at the show. The desk also made a big impression with the worship sector, where installers, dealers and operators alike were extremely impressed with how user friendly the operating system was in comparison with current competition. This is clearly a big potential market for this desk. The CDC four also impressed, with people expressing their astonishment that we can offer a desk with CADAC mic pre-amps and up to 64 channels at 96kHz, inside of $15K.
The team at the show conducted advanced negotiations with potential distributors across the Americas, including Brazil, Chile and Canada, as well as the Caribbean. As a result, demo units of both the CDC eight and CDC four will be heading out to a number of these territories during the next few weeks. Reaction from the company’s traditional theatre sound base was especially positive, resulting in major engineers and designers committing to participating in future product development. “There will be a CDC eight FOH on a major event in New York City in November,” said Millson, “Throughout the show Tom Bensen of RF Productions, our US distributor, ensured a constant stream of major US engineers and rental companies came onto the stand; so many people were really pleased to see CADAC back in such a big way with such brilliant new product.”
