ImPulse1 | NEW powerful audio processing & routing engine, now in a compact 1U solution

Debuting at NAB 2023, Calrec’s recently announced ImPulse1 IP audio processing and routing engine — a smaller, yet powerful, cost-effective ST2110 version of the industry-established ImPulse.

ImPulse1 is a compact 1U solution with an optional second core for redundancy and a new 128-input channel DSP pack offering entry-level pricing. With the introduction of ImPulse1, Calrec is making the move to IP much more attainable for all its customers, offering a range of options to suit all budget requirements.

ImPulse1 works with Argo Q and Argo S control surfaces, and/or Calrec Assist, a browser-based GUI, ideally suited to remote working, multi-operator and/or headless operation. Cores with smaller DSP licenses can be offered without hardware redundancy.

ImPulse1 is designed for small to medium single mixer applications and is offered with an all-new DSP license of 128 input channels without compromising its ST2110 capability.

With a small overall form-factor, it’s immediately attractive for compact installation sites, such as outside broadcast and fly pack applications, where space is at a premium. Furthermore, it doesn’t compromise on features and DSP power; it has DSP options ranging from 128 to 384 input channels and benefits from the DSP features from the larger ImPulse core.

ImPulse | Robust & scalable DSP with IP connectivity

  • Up to four consoles on a single core

ImPulse is the most powerful DSP engine on the planet and has native SMPTE 2110 connectivity.

It’s compatible with Calrec’s Argo and Assist web interface as well as Calrec’s Apollo and Artemis consoles to provide a simple upgrade path for existing Calrec customers moving to an IP domain.

It provides 3D immersive path widths and panning for next-generation audio with height and 3D pan controls, flexible panning and downmixing built-in.

Argo | Award-winning configurable audio console

Calrec’s award-winning Argo audio mixing control platform, designed to adapt to changing production needs is a new approach to audio mixing, with a flexible control philosophy that breaks the traditional geographic tie lines between processing and control.

Argo is fully modular with interchangeable hardware panels and uses Calrec’s time-served Assist UI at its core. This means that whether you are working on physical hardware panels or on a remote virtual GUI, the user interface is both familiar and easy to drive.

Its modular panel system encourages broadcasters to adapt surface hardware to meet their unique requirements, with two mid-level rows of interchangeable panels on the larger Argo Q model, and one mid-level row on the compact Argo S model.

Calrec has also introduced a comprehensive system of user templates to instantly change the hardware user interface to meet changing requirements or user preferences. Argo’s physical control surface is also more streamlined, using optically bonded touchscreens to provide unrivalled visual feedback and speed of access.

Soft panels provide a richer user experience and hardware panels allow users to build definable functions and apply these as templates – this helps operators move around the surface faster and makes it more intuitive. Argo’s panels are also interchangeable and can be placed wherever they are needed. This makes it easy to grow and adapt the console to individual requirements and it means the desk can easily be split for sub-mixing or mixing in other locations.

RP1 | Simple and effective remote production unit for zero-latency monitoring

Calrec’s 2U RP1 remote production unit takes your favourite Calrec console anywhere in the world without ever leaving the studio. A remotely controlled processing engine like RP1 means dedicated control rooms can be used to mix feeds from multiple remote venues. Remote production models produce more live coverage with minimal resources.

Many networks around the world have been successfully using this REMI/at home production model to produce the largest sporting events – in fact Calrec has more experience in REMI/at-home production models than any other audio console manufacturer.

From July 2023, an extended DSP pack will be offered as an optional upgrade path for existing RP1 customers and optional with new units. This will increase the number of virtual control faders to 72 and the DSP to:

  • 96 mono equivalent channel paths
  • 24 Aux send paths
  • 96 Direct outputs

Type R | Modular, expandable, IP-based mixing system for TV and radio; the building blocks for your station

Calrec’s Type R is a modular, expandable IP mixing system designed to allow customers to take advantage of distributed production and flexible workflows. Its three hardware and soft panels can create a variety of system types. It ties in with Calrec’s Assist for mixing in the cloud and integrates with station automation systems like Ross Overdrive, Sony ELC and Grass Valley Ignite.

Calrec adds a compact Talent Panel to the mix. This slimline unit allows guests to switch between multiple sources via its integrated hi-res TFT and adjust headphone volume with a dedicated rotary control. Four switches allow for the panel to be customized to the individual user with common functions like talkback and cough switches; this ensures only essential controls are close to hand.
