Romania’s Pro TV Adds Two More Calrec Consoles

Pro TV, a regional TV station in Romania, has upgraded its existing Calrec Audio live mixing desks to two new Artemis Light audio consoles for use in daytime show productions as well as for live sporting events. The new consoles are an upgrade from Calrec’s Sigma and Omega legacy desks.

The station has used its previous Calrec consoles for more than a dozen years, so it was time for a refresh, according to Octavian Diac, Broadcast Manager at PRO TV Romania.

He said the Artemis Light is a “powerful audio mixer with enough digital processing ability for our current and future projects, and great support for several audio formats including Dante, AES67 and MADI.”

They also use Calrec’s Hydra2 networking system, which allows the technical crew to set up connections between its studios. This offers full redundancy and audio control options capable of handling a large number of I/Os that are shared and controlled, regardless of their location.

The two consoles have been added to Pro TV’s existing Calrec technology, including a Calrec router core that is used as a central point for sharing I/O resources and console router connections across its studios.
