Spain’s Tilt Mobile Chooses Calrec Artemis Console

Madrid-based Tilt, a bespoke audio and video broadcast service provider, is reaping the benefits of a 48-fader Artemis Light console from Calrec for its UM003HD mobile production unit.

Tilt's business has grown considerably in the past year as it works with a variety of customers in live production across sports, music events, commercials and documentaries.

The Artemis Light, which is the company's first Calrec console, replaced an older console inside the expandable 16-camera, 12-meter rigid truck. It was installed by Tilt and supplied by Calrec's Spanish distributor, COEL Audio Solutions.

Tilt has to be ready for any kind of content, from the Copa Del Ray and the Champions League to swimming and horse racing, political debates to music festivals. Therefore, it needed an audio mixer with good cross-point remote control.

Calrec’s Hydra2 networking capabilities take care of this and also allow signals to be transported over Riedel’s MediorNet real-time media network. The Artemis can work across formats – MADI, DANTE, AES67 and more – vital to the company given the huge variety of its work. Tilt uses AES67 to interface with its Riedel Artist intercom system.

The OB company is also taking advantage of Calrec’s Hydra2 networking capabilities, which allows the crew to transmit audio over long distances using fiber. The result is shorter setup time and the amount of temporary infrastructure needed at venues.

Hydra2 routing and I/O system are also being used by leading broadcasters, including Sky and BT Sport, to interconnect multiple consoles in a broadcast facility's audio control rooms. Now with AoIP formats, including RAVENNA and Dante and AES67, broadcasters and production staff can interconnect consoles and studios over longer distances, making it easier to produce content.
