Calrec Audio’s Type R Console Gets European Debut at IBC

The Calrec Audio IP-based console will make its European debut at IBC 2018. The modular and expandable system uses standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator needs. The compact consoles’ physical control system consists of three slim line panels: a fader panel, a large soft panel and a small soft panel. Each is compatible with COTS hardware and powered over Ethernet to keep cabling to a minimum.

At the heart of  Calrec's Type R console is a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources to get users up and running immediately. A single 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.

Calrec’s widely deployed Brio12 and Brio36 audio consoles are getting a boost in channel count. New Brio DSP expansion packs are now available, bringing the Brio12 up from 48 to 64 input channels and the Brio36 from 64 to 96 input channels. DSP expansion packs are available for all Brio consoles on v1.1.6 version software or above; software versions are available for free following Brio registration at www.calrec.com/brioregistration.

Calrec’s compact, high power Brio consoles are designed work across a multitude of broadcast applications for everything from live sports to news and light entertainment. The Brio36 includes a wide range of on board I/O so it’s operational straight out of the box. It also has full Hydra2 network compatibility and a sensitive price point that doesn’t reflect the full and rich broadcast feature set.
