Calrec’s Brio Gets A Boost With Enhanced New Packages

Underlining its commitment to offering powerful market-leading consoles, Calrec is announcing enhanced versions of its popular Brio console with the Brio Duet and Brio Medley packages, which offer greater channel counts and expanded connectivity as standard, and at an even more competitive price.

Dave Letson, VP of Sales, said, “With Brio Duet we’ve upgraded the Brio’s base specification, and Brio 36 Duet becomes the baseline Brio console with an increased input channel count of 96 channels (up from 64) to deal with more surround and immersive mixing as well as standard or slim trims (where space is at a premium), and at a reduced price. The Brio Medley package adds a Dante or MADI expansion card and a Br.IO I/O box with 24 mic/line inputs, 16 analogue outputs and 8 x AES I/Os at a reduced list price. Both packages provide better value for money to our customers, and a much broader appeal to people working in more specialist areas like smaller outside broadcast units and flypacks.”

For existing Brio customers, Calrec is offering an upgrade option to 96 channels on a 64 channel Brio.

Brio is a plug-and-play broadcast console with no DSP sharing so all facilities are available all the time, making it very flexible. It slots into any broadcast workflow and is easy to drive and learn. Brio is fully loaded with dynamics and delay on every path. Its powerful feature set includes a huge internal router, multiple monitor outputs, comprehensive built-in I/O, plus it’s expandable for future growth.
