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, recognising 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
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
For those with a relaxed programming schedule, the D4 Elite’s direct access
control surface offers intuitive and fluid programming, that will realise 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.
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
