    Simplified layout

    Brio’s surface is designed to be uncluttered, compact and configurable to provide instant access to a large number of audio paths. It’s 15.6” HD touchscreen provides quick access to more in-depth control and a bank of illuminating hardware rotary controls give fast and precise control over parameters displayed in the touchscreen UI.

    Self contained

    Self contained

    Brio is entirely self-contained with I/O and PSUs built into the surface. Additional expansion I/O slots are fitted to allow further I/O to be connected to share audio over Calrec’s Hydra2 network or IP networks. This protects the system against emerging formats and allows the console to sit on multiple networks simultaneously.

There is so much power in such a compact package. Before Brio, smaller trucks wouldn’t necessarily have the budget or the space for a larger Calrec, so the Brio really fills a missing piece in the mobile audio puzzle.
