Turkey’s HD Protek Upgrades OB Van With Country’s First Calrec Audio Console

Turkish OB company HD Protek has installed a Calrec Summa audio console as part of an upgrade to its HDP 04 outside broadcast (OB) unit. The installation marks the first Summa in the Turkish OB market.

Local systems integrator Teratek upgraded the HDP 04 van, and its first live broadcast was “The Voice Turkey.”

Yucel Ozacar, general manager of HD Protek, said that due to the new console’s flexibility and reliable operation, it has streamlined audio production in all of its forms. It has also saved the company’s crew time and effort during setup.

“Knowing that we can easily track the signal and that the console will work without question is a big comfort to us,” Ozacar said. “Also, the Calrec Summa adds a powerful new audio-mixing option to our fleet, so we can handle more complex shows more easily. The Summa makes it possible to configure the meters to whatever we want; we can put every track output, aux output, main, or loudness meter on the screens, in any layout, in order to follow the signal visually as it flows through the system.”

Using port lists, it is possible to group I/O ports logically. The flexibility of the Hydra2 matrix system and the simplicity of operation make it easy for the sound engineer to reconfigure the console from one show to another, which happens daily with HD Protek's full schedule and variety of events. Ozacar also said that the Summa2 console has been especially useful to HD Protek because it does not make users identify I/O boxes before patching a signal on an empty fader.
