Calrec Audio Reveals V8 Software Updates At NAB 2017

News Image
Calrec Audio has revealed a number of updates to its V8 software.

The new developments were unveiled by the company at the recent 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas.

Features include improved RP1 support, switchable 96-kHz or 48-kHz sample rates, and further integration of Calrec's AoIP interface.

In addition, the new V8 software integrates Brio on the Hydra2 network, allowing the console's on-board resources to be available to all other networked resources.

Brio also received new features, with users now able to gain stereo- and 5.1-path spill leg access and independence controls. A second compressor/limiter is also available with single- or 3-band options on all channels, groups, and mains, giving users greater control. The expander/gate in the dynamics section now includes a ducker, complete with a selectable sidechain source that allows the gain reduction to be keyed from audio on any other mono path on the surface.

The compact digital broadcast audio console can also operate at multiple sample rates, with options of 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz — all without any DSP sacrifices. Its processing capacity remains the same at any sample rate.

Dave Letson, Calrec's vice president of Sales, said: "V8 is really an evolution, a progressive suite of tools that supports broadcasters into their next phase of IP development.

"With remote production and AoIP rapidly becoming a reality for many, V8 allows Calrec's users to progress confidently into the next era. This, combined with higher-resolution audio, ensures that all bases are covered going forward."
