Live broadcast simplified
The elegant Summa is perfect for broadcasters looking for the power to produce engaging broadcast audio with a clear, open and straightforward interface. Give your creativity some breathing space with Summa’s simplified workflows.
Why you need a Summa
Summa’s considered control simplifies even complex workflow tasks, such as creating mix-minus feeds, but still packs a lot of punch. With 300 DSP processing paths, Summa has eight groups, four mains, 16 auxes, and 32 tracks. Its router is the same technology as the larger Apollo and Artemis consoles.
Summa’s lean construction uses minimal components and materials, while disciplined power distribution means Summa has excellent green credentials; low weight, low consumption and minimal heat generation.
No DSP sharing
With 300 DSP processing paths, every single input channel has dedicated DSP resources to give you total, stress-free control. Independent DSP operation ensures continuity in the event of a PC or control reset.
Mixing on the Summa is straightforward, but getting to grips with technology in our changing landscape can be challenging. Summa helps with assistive apps like Autofaders and Automix, as well as comprehensive training videos.
Hot pluggable, redundant hardware for all critical systems with automatic takeover on PSUs, DSP, control processor, router and I/O. Spares mirror primary hardware and in the rare event of failure take over with no audio disruption.
Summa simplifies complex workflows with its 15.6” GUI which is designed for a range of users and provides clear presentation of information. Summa’s worksurface is fully configurable with dedicated visual information on every fader.
Available in fixed 20, 32 and 44-fader configurations, Summa's channel strip has only essential mechanical controls, featuring a full 100mm fader with mechanical PFL overpress, two flexible control cells, and a dedicated gain pot.
The elegant Summa console is designed for professionals who may not require as many resources as Calrec’s bigger consoles.
