Calrec Launches Smaller Artemis Console

Calrec Audio will unveil the latest addition to its Artemis family of mixing consoles, called Artemis Ray, at NAB 2017. The new mixer has 456 fully featured input channels and can handle up to 72 faders, the same as the company’s larger Artemis Shine model.

Calrec's Artemis Ray features a brand-new fader/monitor panel and control surface layout that allows more faders in a reduced surface area. The panel — also available on Calrec’s Artemis Light, Beam, and Shine models — is the same width as a standard Artemis fader panel and includes eight full-size faders..

Stating that understand that a high fader density is not only desirable, but essential, Dave Letson, Calrec's vice president of sales, said the new console is ideal for space limited OB Vans and small control rooms. In addition, the Artemis Ray provides the same functionality as the company’s previous models, but with more channels and faders in the same footprint.

With the new chassis and fader/monitor panel, Artemis Ray's 72-fader layout fits into a mere 2372 millimeters (93.39 inches) of space, delivering more power than ever before in such a small footprint. It’s also capable of operating at multiple sample rates; at 48kHz the Artemis Ray provides up to 456 channel-processing paths, 128 program buses, 64 IFB/track outputs, and 32 auxiliaries.

The console also features a second compressor/limiter in each channel, more than 70 minutes of assignable delay, and three independent APFL systems for multiple operator use. As with all Calrec designs, these facilities do not share resources; which means they are all available to the user at all times.
