Calrec's Type R IP-based radio production system will feature at IBC.
Calrec Audio will feature their RP1 remote production unit at the 2018 IBC show. The new modular, expandable, IP-based radio system makes use of standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panel. A single 2RU core can power up to three independent mixing environments, with no sharing of DSP resources. Whether used as independent studio consoles, microphone processors or utility mixing, the ability to use multiple mixing engines combined with the flexibility of an AES67 compatible network provides enough flexibility to keep pace with radio’s changing requirements.
Calrec's RP1 remote production unit is a unique live-broadcast product that directly addresses an increasingly prevalent requirement for high-quality content from remote locations.
Remote production offers the ability to capture a broader range of live events, such as sports, news, or regional music festivals.
Broadcasters cannot always justify the time or expense of sending a dedicated outside broadcast truck and a team of skilled on-site operators for these niche events, but they must always ensure that the same high broadcast standards are met.
RP1 consists of a 2U core that contains integrated FPGA-based DSP, enabling a console surface at another facility to control all mixing functionality.
The RP1 core manages all the processing for IFB routing and remote monitor mixes, and it 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.
Brio 12 Compact Audio Mixer
Brio 12 has the same powerful feature set and mix capabilities as its larger sibling, Brio36, which has seen unrivalled success.
Brio 12 meets the demand for a broadcast mixer that can be used in very tight spaces like small vans and compact control rooms, and at under 450mm or 18 inches wide, it is slim enough to fit into standard racks or to be stowed out of the way when not in use.
Brio 12 is perfect for small-scale productions, or as a sub-mixer or backup mixer for larger productions. Inheriting a rich feature set and powerful surround capability from its larger sibling, Brio 12 removes the limitations on ambition and creativity imposed by mixers of comparable size and price-point.
