Since the dawn of television, sound has accompanied image.
Often dubbed the poor relation of video, sound plays a pivotal role in the viewing experience. Calrec has been integral to providing high-quality audio since its first foray into broadcast as a microphone manufacturer in the 1960s, and then later into the console arena. In fact, Calrec has been dedicated to designing and manufacturing broadcast mixing consoles since 1971.
At the heart of Calrec’s vocation is a passion to deliver the best sound using the most up-to-date techniques. Calrec leads the charge in innovation by refining current workflows and defining emerging trends. Since designing that first audio console in 1971, Calrec has strived to ensure its customers are one step ahead of the changing needs of the broadcast environment.
Today the methods adopted by one broadcaster can differ vastly from those implemented by others. Calrec has designed its audio solutions to be interpreted by the broadcaster, and malleable to fit the specific needs of the workflow.
This, coupled with Calrec’s reputation for resilience, has allowed them to carve a reputation as pioneers chosen by the world’s foremost broadcasters.
As the industry hurtles towards interoperability, standardised transport mechanisms and remote production, Calrec is ready to facilitate the transition and support the modern broadcaster throughout the process.
