Calrec customer Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) has acquired two additional Calrec Apollo consoles.

Ji-hun An, Audio Director, Sound Department at MBC TV, said: "Being very familiar with Calrec's Artemis and Apollo consoles, we're confident in the stability of the company’s technology, which is vital in a live environment. The Apollo surface is also easy to use and when working live because we frequently have to adjust parameters during a broadcast, including channel dynamics and routing. The Apollo's control surface makes this simple, and it’s high DSP count means configuring it for different projects is straightforward."

MBC acquired the two additional Apollos from Calrec for its flagship MBC TV channel. The first console is installed in studio C, which is used for the production and recording of live-to-tape UHD and HD current affairs and wider cultural content. The second is in studio E, where similar content is produced for live-to-air broadcasts. MBC use a fixed format MADI box for multi-track recording in both studios.
