Hong Kong’s TVB Continues Its Commitment To Calrec Consoles

As a long-time customer and supporter of Calrec Audio technology, TVB, the largest broadcaster in Hong Kong, has placed an order for a Brio12 audio mixing console. This marks the tenth Calrec console that the broadcaster has purchased to date, joining a collection of two Artemis Beams consoles and one Artemis Light model that were purchased last year as part of TVB’s ongoing audio technology upgrade.

Taking advantage of its compact size, TVB is using the console as a portable solution for supporting live sports events. This has included the 2019 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup held in January, and the SIXDAY Series PRURide cycling event that happened in Hong Kong in March.

TVB is also taking advantage of Calrec’s Hydra2 networking and its additional Dante and MADI I/O cards.

Mr. Law Yui Wah, Studio Production Department/Assistant Manager at TVB Hong Kong said that connecting via fiber, it’s easy to change the I/O cards to accommodate different productions.

“We’re using MADI cards for our intercom connection and Dante cards for signal interchanging between a PA console and the broadcast console,” he said. “The Brio12 is small enough for us to use portably yet offers enough connectivity and power.”

Local distributor Jolly Pro Audio handled the sale and installation.
