Calrec: Phil Adler, A1 Mixer, A craft interview Posted: 22/04/2020
Calrec: Phil Adler, A1 Mixer, A craft interview

“I haven't changed the way I produce a broadcast because of the internet. The quality of what I stream at home is as good, if not better, than what the local stations are transmitting. I make sure the mix sounds good at low volume and in stereo or mono, which is an old music mix technique. If it sounds good like that, it'll sound good anywhere.”

Calrec liaising with expanded dealer network to provide audio production solution advice

Recognising the extraordinary circumstances in which the world finds itself, Calrec is working closely with its newly expanded dealer network to provide information and technical assistance to help overcome current working restrictions.

Dave Letson, VP of Sales, Calrec, says, “We are reaching out to provide as much assistance as we can and working alongside our expanding dealer network to advise customers as to how Calrec’s technology can help, especially in the short term.”

Calrec is undertaking a series of partner web events to educate its community on IP, virtual working and at-home production techniques. Using a combination of webinar content and Q&As with product management, Calrec aims to develop its network of global partners on product introductions including enhanced IP core redundancy and a closer alignment with NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 in all IP-enabled Calrec technology.

The company is also rolling out a series of Calrec Assist demos to partners and customers to illustrating how this technology can be used to mix live broadcasts remotely. Calrec Assist is a web application which provides the ability to mix a show over an IP network from anywhere in the world. It works with Calrec’s VP2 and Type R virtual consoles and is currently being used by a UK broadcaster to mix news bulletins while homeworking.

“Our customers are using a combination of Calrec equipment to enable them to continue to broadcast whilst working from home,” adds Letson. “We’re encouraging our distributors and partners to keep across new Calrec developments so that they are able to help broadcasters to maximise their output in these difficult circumstances.”

Russias largest media corporation VGTRK deploys Calrec Brios as part of its HD regional studio upgrade Posted: 18/03/2020
Russia and rsquo;s largest media corporation VGTRK deploys Calrec Brios as part of its HD regional studio upgrade

The All-Russia State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company (VGTRK) is completing the installation of 30 Calrec Brio36 audio consoles into its regional studios as part of a 10-year HD network upgrade program.

Ilya Lebedev, Chief of Regional TV systems Department at VGTRK, said, “The challenge was that we needed an audio console that would work seamlessly across different stations with varying needs over a wide territory. We’d known of Calrec’s good reputation, and our integration partner, OKNO-TV, suggested using the Brio console for our studio upgrades. The Brio is a vast improvement over what we were previously using in these studios, with superb sound quality. In combination with Calrec’s Br.IO Stageboxes, this expands our capabilities and gives us the flexibility and sound quality that we need across various production formats.”

These 30 television studios are part of a huge network of more than 80 television centres  located at regional capitals and produce a wide range of content including news and entertainment programming, often both in Russian and the local regional language. Each studio is installing a Brio36 as the main console, a Br.IO Stagebox to expand the I/O capacity, along with an Allen & Heath ZED16 as the backup console.

Calrec Chuck Ibey, A1 Mixer, A craft interview Posted: 11/03/2020
Calrec and mdash; Chuck Ibey, A1 Mixer, A craft interview
  1. What is your background and how did you get into broadcast sound?

I have been in live broadcast television since I was 17 and just about to graduate high school. I knew I wanted to be involved in audio, and at first I wanted to be in music. I wanted to tour with a band or work in a studio. After talking with some locals in the industry, they all basically steered me towards television. I started off volunteering with a local production company in Edmonton, and the owner Dave Benson recommended me as a Utility for CFL (Canadian Football). I started working freelance with Dome Productions in 2001 as a teenager and worked my way up to being an A1 around 2010.

Calrec Launches Type R for TV IP-Based Virtual Mixing Posted: 05/03/2020
Calrec Launches Type R for TV IP-Based Virtual Mixing

Building on the success of its Type R for Radio Calrec has launched Type R for TV — a virtual mixing console that lets customers take advantage of virtual workflows. Its flexible and integrated native IP core integrates with station automation systems, rewarding customers with the benefits of virtual working practices.

Type R for TV fulfills the rising demand for automated audio consoles in smaller news operations, which is becoming more prevalent according to Calrec’s Director of Product Management, Henry Goodman. “More often we’re seeing the console surface not used at all, which is driving the demand for broadcast-level virtual consoles,” he said.

Type R for TV is compatible with popular station automation systems including Ross Overdrive, Sony ELC and Grass Valley Ignite. Furthermore, 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.

Calrec’s Assist web UI makes it easy to access the virtual desk on almost any device, wherever in the world a user is. Assist works over TCP/IP and has minimal control lag, which makes minor adjustments easy and quick to do.

Goodman continued, “The move towards virtual mixing is gaining momentum, particularly in the US market. Calrec’s Serial Control Protocol (CSCP) has already provided a very successful transition to this model. It allows the audio console to be configured and driven entirely from the production control room’s vision switcher and remote fader panel, and Type R for TV builds on that legacy while maintaining our reputation for resilience and redundancy.”

Type R for TV will be on show at NAB 2020 at Central Hall t stand C8008.

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.

Riot Games in a league of their own with Calrec RP1 remote production solution

Riot Games’ 2019 League of Legends World Championship final in Paris relied on Calrec’s RP1 remote production technology for the English language feed for viewers in North America, Europe and Oceania.

Dave Talavera, Audio Engineer with Riot Games, said, “When it came to building our new European facility in Berlin two years ago, we knew, given our experience with remote production, that was the path that we wanted to continue down. Calrec was the only company that had come up with a remote production solution for IFB and they are still very much at the forefront of this. This was essential for the remote production of the English language feed for the final in Paris.”

R3 Estudio Movel in Brazil equips OB van with Calrec Artemis for live music Posted: 23/10/2019
R3 Estudio Movel in Brazil equips OB van with Calrec Artemis for live music Såo Paulo-based R3 Estudio Movel has chosen a Calrec Artemis Ray audio console for its OB truck, called PowerTruck, focussing on the recording and mixing of audio for live broadcasts as well as music DVDs and streaming outlets.
 
Isaías Rosa, R3’s recording/mixing engineer and multi-Latin Grammy nominee, says that when assessing the audio console market, “the Artemis met all the requirements of our truck,” highlighting its versatility as a key quality that drew him to the console. “The truck is set up for mixing and recording music. The Artemis Ray has excellent sound quality; we use it in a 72-fader configuration, which is great for live music mixing as we have the faders set up on one layer,” he continued.
 
R3 Estudio Movel uses two WAVES cards, one Dante card and six MADI cards in the truck. The on-stage setup includes 128 mic pre-amps and two MADI cards. The company creates about 40 music DVDs a year – including one recently for Sony Music’s Brazilian funk artist Nego do Borel - plus its work on live broadcasts and streaming.
 
“This project is a great example of how the Artemis console can really spread its wings with different types of broadcasts, including live music. It’s a testament to its power, versatility and superior sound quality. We’re delighted that R3 Estudio Movel is reaping the benefits of all that the Artemis has to offer,” commented Mike Reddick, International Sales Manager, Calrec.
