Calrec Audio To Unveil New Products

News Image
Calrec Audio will bring a host of new products to IBC 2016, it has been announced.

Included in the line-up is the company's new Brio compact digital broadcast audio console. It is the smallest console in Calrec's Bluefin2 range, measuring 892mm wide. The dual-layer, 36-fader surface provides more faders in a given footprint than other consoles. The surface also enables instant access to a large number of audio paths, while a 15.6-inch HD touchscreen UI provides quick access to more in-depth control. A bank of illuminating hardware rotary controls ensures precise control over parameters displayed in the touchscreen UI.

Self-contained, Brio comes with analogue and digital I/O and GPIO built into the surface. Additional expansion I/O slots allow for further I/O integration, and fitting an available Hydra2 module makes it possible to connect to and share audio over Calrec's Hydra2 network.

Following its appearance at NAB 2016, Calrec's RP1 remote production unit addresses an increasingly popular requirement for high-quality content from remote locations. The RP1 remote production engine is a 2U core that contains integrated, FPGA-based DSP, which enables a console surface at another facility to control all mixing functionality. The RP1 core manages all of the processing for IFB routing and remote monitor mixes, and does so locally with no latency. This level of integration and remote control makes it simple for any remote mix engineer to set up IFB mixes and eradicates any delay for remote listeners or presenters.

The RP1 core quickly embeds audio into existing video-transport mechanisms, while its modular I/O backbone accepts any of Calrec's I/O cards. It can connect via analogue, AES, MADI, SDI, and the latest AoIP solutions from AES67, Ravenna, Dante, and SMPTE 2022.

Also at IBC 2016, Calrec will demonstrate a number of technologies that offer simultaneous interfacing with multiple protocols and flexibility across various audio and video standards.

Calrec will highlight four new networking interfaces, including an AES67/Ravenna interface, an AVB interface, and a modular I/O Dante card that also has AES67 compatibility. In addition, Calrec will debut a SMPTE 2022-6 video interface.

Calrec's customers can now interface with multiple protocols at the same time. For example, a signal can be received via AES67 and then sent out via SMPTE 2022, AVB, Ravenna, Dante, or AES67. Signal processing takes place via modular cards or 1-U boxes.

Each signal benefits from the management facilities in Hydra2.

Dave Letson, Vice President of Sales, Calrec Audio, said: "IBC is the ideal forum to introduce our innovative new products to the European market. We first revealed these products at the NAB Show, and they were met with great enthusiasm. Alongside Brio, RP1, and our new networking interfaces, we will also launch some exciting new additions to our product range. We're not talking about them yet, but there will be more details in the run-up to the show."
