Calrec Artemis for FOX SPORTS
Posted on: Wednesday 17th of January 2018
FOX SPORTS Australia has added a second Calrec Artemis digital audio console at its Sydney headquarters. The decommissioning of a previous Zeta console plus installation and commissioning of the Artemis took less than 48 hours by a team assembled by FOX SPORTS Australia Broadcast Projects Engineer Mick Gergos. “When it came time to upgrade to a new console in our main broadcast facility, the Artemis was an easy choice. Since we already work with the same desk in our other studio, adding a new Artemis guaranteed a smooth transition for our crew,” said FOX SPORTS Australia Network Head of Audio Antony Koveos. “We effectively mirrored and networked the facilities by adding Dante cards in both studios and the intercom system. This has given us a high-capacity intercom interface that extends to the outside world and is now available on our outside broadcast network.”
The new 48-fader Artemis console is installed in Studio B. Key drivers for FOX SPORTS to add the second Artemis were the ability to link it via Calrec’s Hydra2 network to the existing Artemis in Studio A for a seamless exchange of audio signals, and the ability to add Calrec’s RP1 remote production unit to remotely control signals in the field from an Artemis surface in a studio control room.
