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.”

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.

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.”
