University of Surrey Adds Calrec Brio For Real-World Education

The University of Surrey, UK, has upgraded its television studio with a Brio audio console from Calrec Audio.

Internationally recognized as the UK center for the prestigious Music and Sound Recording (Tonmeister) Audio Degree, the school has now introduced an equivalent film and video production technology program, which is in its third year. Andy Attwell, Television Studio Manager, said that in order to support the introduction of this new A/V production major, the school’s entire production facilities were upgraded, including cameras, a vision mixer, signal routing, audio, IT networks and fiber-optic connectivity to the wider campus.

The Calrec Brio audio console provides students with a true professional broadcast experience. This includes taking full advantage of the Brio’s networking capabilities and expanding connectivity via an additional I/O box. This includes inputs for a MADI card, which connects the Brio to the facility’s main audio studio, and a Dante card to teach students audio over IP. This is in addition to integrating RTS talkback into their audio workflows via the Brio’s Hydra 2 connectivity.
