Calrec to Show Hydra2 Interface for DiGiCo Console

Calrec will showcase the first technology release developed in conjunction with DiGiCo at IBC 2015. DiGiCo consoles can now integrate onto the Calrec Hydra2 network via a Hydra2-enabled DiGiCo Multi-channel Interface (DMI) card.

Calrec said it is also talking to other manufacturers about incorporating this hardware into their broadcast equipment. Third-party manufacturers can join the Hydra2 family exclusively and benefit from the management tools built into the world's most powerful proprietary audio networking system.

DiGiCo's range of cards easily converts audio from one transport protocol to another and can be placed in DiGiCo's “anything in, anything out” Orange Box, or directly into the back of the company's newest digital mixing console, the S21.

Over the past 50 years, Calrec has developed a range of digital consoles relied on by the world’s most successful broadcasters. In 2014, UK audio console manufacturers DiGiCo, Allen & Heath and Calrec merged to create a new professional audio group, called Audiotonix.
