IBC 2021 Cancelled: Although we can’t meet in person, we can still have a chat

Get in touch for a catch-up, or book a remote demo with Calrec’s broadcast specialists, to get up close and personal with our kit or find out more about remote working, virtualisation, remote production and IP.

Calrec has a comprehensive range of broadcast audio products – Apollo, Artemis, Brio, Type R, ImPulse, RP1, Gateway, Hydra2 and Assist.

Here are 7 key focuses we were going to talk to you about. The most important being number 7, catching up and hearing about what you have been working on.

1. Back to Broadcast

We’re not only back to broadcast, we’re back to more broadcast than ever before. The broadcast market is evolving as it rises to the challenges of greater competition and the issues created by Covid, and we’ve been with broadcasters every step of the way.

Calrec has a range of solutions that enable broadcasters to meet these challenges with a focus on remote working, virtualization, remote production and IP.

We’ve got Calrec Assist on the Apollo, Artemis, Type R and the RP1 Remote Production core to demonstrate remote working and remote production; we’ve got the modular Type R IP console or radio and TV; Brio, our biggest tiny console ever, now with extra features as standard; the Apollo, a powerhouse of a console; the compact Artemis console; the ImPulse IP core, the most powerful broadcast IP core available anywhere and fully compatible with existing Apollo and Artemis consoles; and the H2-IP Gateway, which provides an interface between Calrec’s proprietary Hydra2 network and a SMPTE 2110-30 network.

2. Remote Working

Calrec’s Assist web interface allows operators to mix entire shows from their home or other physical location. Assist provides comprehensive control for Calrec’s Apollo, Artemis, VP2 virtual production engine and Type R IP core and has been used extensively by a host of broadcasters to provide remote mixing solutions over the last 18 months.

RP1 enables broadcasters to mix live events either on dedicated Calrec hardware or on Calrec Assist from a remote facility. This year broadcasters like NBC and the BBC have reduced the number of people they sent to events by using RP1 to mix international sports from studios in Manchester UK and New York. In-ear latency is eradicated by locating RP1’s 2U core at the venue.

3. Work Hard, Play Constructively – Lego

We’re building back stronger, one brick at a time.

We’ve created a Calrec Type R LEGO® kit so you can build your very own LEGO® Type R IP audio mixing console at home.

Numbers are limited, but if you are one of the first 5 people to book a remote demo on our Type R console, we’ll give you one of your very own. Book a demo below, and if you’re not in the first 5 people we’ll keep you on the list in case we get any no-shows.

If you really can’t wait, you can reserve your Type R Lego kit here. Each limited-edition 200-piece kit comes complete with a step-by-step instruction booklet.

4. IP

More and more new installs are fully IP, although wherever you are on that journey, Calrec has you covered.

Alongside the Type R and ImPulse, Calrec also have the H2-IP Gateway to provide a link between Calrec’s proprietary Hydra2 network and a SMPTE 2110-30 network.

ImPulse is the most powerful audio processing and routing engine available. With SMPTE 2110 connectivity and compatibility with current Apollo and Artemis control surfaces, it provides a simple upgrade path to IP.

Calrec’s H2-IP Gateway expands the range of AoIP solutions from Calrec and enables audio labels and control data to be passed between both networks; this gives Hydra2 users the ability to control Calrec AoIP inputs and vice versa.

The H2 IP Gateway means Calrec equipment can sit on an IP network, a proprietary Hydra2 network, or a combination of the two, and you can move to IP at your own pace.

5. Type R

Type R is an expandable and flexible IP mixing system for small TV and radio stations that uses soft panels to meet specific operator needs. Its three hardware panels can create a variety of system types, it uses Assist to mix in the cloud and it provides facilities for up to three independent mixers to hang off one system core.

It’s super-flexible and can be whatever you want it to be. It has been used as a remote console, in local TV news, community radio, internet radio, popup broadcast environment and on wider distributed networks.

Don’t forget – if you’re quick you could bag yourself a free Type R LEGO® kit.

6. Brio

Brio is a plug-and-play fully-featured broadcast console, and Calrec’s new Brio Duet and Medley have now been stacked out with extra features.

Duet has 96 channels as standard, internal Hydra2 connectivity, comprehensive built-in IO; Medley adds an additional Dante 64 or MADI IO module as well as an external Br.IO box with 24 mic/line inputs, 16 analogue outputs and 8 AES IO.

Over the last 18 months, this portable and flexible console has been a real workhorse for broadcasters looking to work remotely. It has mixed everything from live news and live sports to a magazine show about choirs, from homes, garages and even a VW Campervan!

With comprehensive free training, market-leading technical customer support and Calrec’s renowned reliability, Brio meets your needs for years to come.

7. People

Come on, you’ve missed it. We’ve all missed it.

We were all really hoping that we would be able to meet up, but even though we won’t see you at IBC 2021, we love hearing from you and can’t wait to hear all about what you have been working on.

Not spending time with people has been the hardest thing for everyone. We’ve all had to evolve to new ways of working, talking, playing and communicating, but sometimes it’s just nice to look someone in the eyes when you say hello.

Book a catch-up on whatever channel you prefer
