Calrec NAB 2020 Preview: Central Hall Stand C8008 Posted: 13/02/2020
Calrec NAB 2020 Preview: Central Hall Stand C8008

Calrec’s Type R for TV is a new virtual mixing console with its design allowing customers to take advantage of these new workflows. It’s flexible and integrated native IP core gives customers a way to benefit from virtual working practices by integrating with station automation systems. Type R for TV is driven by station automation and is compatible with popular station automation systems including Ross Overdrive, Sony ELC and Grass Valley Ignite. Type R is the best of both worlds – it provides fully automated programming with real-time adjustment of unpredictable external factors via a standard web browser. Type R’s small, adaptable and highly portable hardware elements can be easily added if desired.Powered by standard POE switches, Type R has three different panel options. If broadcasters prefer a physical surface then banks of 6 x faders can be added, or adaptable soft panels like Calrec’s Large Soft Panel (LSP) and Small Soft Panel (SSP) can be used.

VP2 virtualized mixing system

Calrec’s VP2 virtualized mixing system has no physical control surface and utilisesCalrec’s Assist software for setup and control. VP2’s 4U core comes in three DSP sizes; 128, 180 and 240 input channels, and incorporates Calrec’s powerful Hydra2 networking solution. As with all Hydra2 products this can be controlled by a station automation system.

VP2 enables a station to reap many of the benefits of using a Calrec console, but without a physical control surface. Calrec’s Assist UI can be accessed from multiple locations via a web-browser. Control can be limited to basic functions or full control can be awarded to delve deeper to fine tune the setup or recall different shows as needed.

Calrec CABSAT 2020 Show Preview Posted: 13/02/2020
Calrec CABSAT 2020 Show Preview

Exhibiting with GSL Professional stand 308

Type R

Calrec is showing its Type R modular, expandable, IP-based system at CABSAT. Type R makes use of standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator needs.

Type R’s physical control system consists of three slimline panels: a fader panel, a large soft panel and a small soft panel. Each is compatible with COTS hardware and powered over Ethernet to keep cabling to a minimum. At the heart of Type R is a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources to get customers up and running immediately.

Calrec’s Brio console – immense power in a compact package

Calrec’s compact, high power Brio consoles are designed with versatility in mind to work across all different broadcast applications for everything from live sports to news and light entertainment. The Brio36 includes an impressive range of on board I/O so it’s operational straight out of the box. It also has full Hydra2 network compatibility and a sensitive price point that doesn’t reflect the full and rich broadcast feature set. The smaller Brio12 is only 484mm with standard trims and just 430mm with Calrec’s slim trim option.

Last year, Calrec upgraded the channel count for both the Brio36 and Brio12 with DSP expansion packs, bringing their channel counts from 64 to 96 inputs and 48 to 64 inputs, respectively.
