Calrec launch entry-level digital surround broadcast console

Calrec Audio are set to launch their Sigma 100 medium format digital audio production console at NAB2002, booth L2263.
Designed to offer similar specification and functionality to Calrec’s S2 analogue console, of which nearly 100 have been sold worldwide, Sigma 100 is Calrec’s second all digital production console.
Based on time-served Alpha 100 digital architecture, Sigma is designed to be scaleable and provide high levels of redundancy, with swappable cards and panels throughout.
Aimed at production facilities that do not require large format consoles and cannot sacrifice reliability or technical specification, all channels include four-band EQ, separate filters, compressor/limiter/expander gate, surround and stereo panning and Mix-Minus outputs.
Sigma also features four surround main outputs, 12 Auxes, 24 MT and eight Groups, with 5.1 and Stereo Monitoring with full Dolby E integration.
“Sigma represents a milestone in Calrec’s strategy of achieving a range of digital audio production solutions for a wide spectrum of broadcast requirements,” Sales and Marketing Director John Gluck said.
“Calrec have long provided a range of broadcast-specific console designs that have separated them from its competitors. Calrec is unique in offering a full range of broadcast specific, high performance consoles."
Targeted at large news studios, medium-sized general purpose production studios and Outside Broadcast vehicles, Sigma is available in four cost-effective processing/input configurations and three frame sizes with a variety of input and output interfaces. These packages ensure no excessive expenditure is needed to meet the demands of busy, medium-sized studios.
Calrec Audio are manufacturers of professional audio equipment. The company supplies analogue and digital consoles to the broadcast industry worldwide. Calrec is based in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, England.
