    Calrec Audio Showcases the Future of Broadcasting

    March 12, 2019, 7:37 am
    Calrec will be showcasing its latest virtualized solutions at NAB

    VEGAS, MARCH 12, 201
    9 Calrec Audio (Booth: C7408)
    is demonstrating various solutions that maximize performance but also value for
    money. The company will be showcasing its latest, virtualized solutions at NAB,
    including its VP2 headless mixing system, the RP1 2U rackmount broadcasting
    mixing system, and its modular IP-based system, Type R.


    “There has been a
    rising demand over recent years to provide alternatives to traditional
    broadcast workflows for some applications,” says Dave Letson, Calrec’s VP of
    Sales. “This has come in many forms including remote production, headless
    consoles and IP integration. Calrec can help broadcasters streamline workflows,
    reduce downtime on consoles, improve cost efficiency and expand variety of
    coverage, plus integrate with other equipment via open source transport
    mechanisms. We are excited to discuss these opportunities with everyone at NAB
    this year.”



    Calrec will be
    displaying VP2, its virtualized mixing system. VP2 has no physical control
    surface and utilizes Calrec’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. Calrec Serial Control Protocol (CSCP)
    can allow the audio console to be completely controlled by an automation system.


    VP2 enables the station
    to reap many of the benefits of using a Calrec console, but without a physical
    control surface. Control and setup are via Calrec’s Assist software, which can
    be accessed from multiple locations via a web-browser. The technical director/operator
    can be given basic control functions whereas an engineer can delve deeper to
    fine tune the setup or recall different setups as needed.



    RP1 is a broadcast
    mixing system in a 2U rackmount box, containing Calrec’s award-winning Bluefin2
    processing. Calrec’s RP1 provides solutions to the three major challenges in
    remote production workflows – latency, transport and control. On-board DSP
    enables the generation of monitor mixes and IFBs onsite with no latency, Hydra2
    interfaces provide a mechanism to output audio in a variety of formats and
    Calrec’s True Control gives an operator in a remote studio direct control over
    channel functions.


    Type R

    Type R is a modular,
    expandable, IP-based mixing system, which utilizes standard networking technology
    and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator
    needs. It provides simple customization across established networks, open
    control protocols and surface personalization. Type R can be used without a
    physical surface with control and setup via Calrec’s browser-based Assist
    application and is fully compatible with automated systems using CSCP.
