Hungary’s TV2 Improves Live Mixing Capabilities with New Calrec Consoles

Looking to deploy future-proof technology, TV2, one of Hungary’s premiere commercial television channels, has upgraded its audio mixing rooms in two studios at its headquarters with a Summa and Artemis Light console from Calrec Audio.

Adam Somodi, sound engineer, TV2 Hungary, said that their programming lineup continues to grow in both size and complexity, so high performance and reliability were critical buying decisions for the consoles.

“With the Artemis and Summa desks, we're much better equipped to handle our largest productions,” he said.

As one of Hungary's most-watched channels, TV2 offers a large variety of popular programs to viewers throughout Hungary and some areas of Romania. The 128-channel Summa and Artemis Light are both installed in TV2 Hungary's main broadcast center in Budapest. The Summa is used in the news and morning program studio, and the Artemis Light supports production of high-visibility musical programs in TV2's largest studio.

Calrec Audio modular card on the Artemis Light allows seamless integration with SoundGrid's Waves series of audio plug-ins and gives engineers expanded capabilities for the music productions. This, combined with the ability to record all channels via MADI and replay audio, provides support for postproduction.

“Since the Artemis Light and Summa sit on the same Calrec Hydra2 network, we're able to share inputs and outputs between the two studios — a huge plus,” Somodi said. “Engineers are able to speed up the workflow and recall their own saved settings quickly and easily, on either desk. The Waves plug-ins on the Artemis gives us greater capacity and more flexibility than ever before to mix many more types of musical shows.”
