Posted on: Wednesday 19th of September 2018
The Calrec Audio IP-based console made its European debut at IBC 2018. The modular and expandable system uses standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator needs. The physical control system consists of three slim line 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.
Type R console is based on a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources to get users up and running straight away. A single core can power up to three independent mixing environments, with no sharing of DSP resources. Whether used as independent studio consoles, microphone processors or utility mixing, the ability to use multiple mixing engines combined with the flexibility of an AES67 compatible network.
“Type R is a thoroughly modern and customer focused radio broadcast system that adapts to a station’s needs as its requirements evolve,” says Henry Goodman, Director of Product Management, Calrec Audio. “It provides simple customisation across established networks, open control protocols and surface personalisation. With a native IP backbone, Type R provides an infrastructure for future expansion. It guarantees stations are not only able to keep pace with changing demands, they are also able to use its capabilities to ignite their audiences with new and innovative programming.”
