Calrec fills Full Sail with Artemis and Brio

Posted on: Tuesday 20th of November 2018

Full Sail University has expanded its world-class performance venue, Full Sail Live, with Calrec Audio’s Artemis and Brio36 consoles. Already utilising a Summa console for its Show Production degree program and Brio console for its Film degree program, Full Sail knows Calrec’s advanced audio solutions.

“The existing broadcast audio console in our performance venue was being maxed out, so an upgrade was in order,” says Scott Dansby, Director, Industry Relations, Full Sail University. “We had an existing relationship with Calrec and knew its consoles had the right tools, functionality and features. Also, continuity was important to us as some of the students were already working with Calrec boards as part of their degree programs. By choosing Calrec’s Artemis and Brio36 consoles for the venue, we now have the ability to grow the system and scale it towards the events in that space. Calrec is providing us with a lot more room to grow in terms of the number of busses, channels and networks.”

Having two consoles in the same room is not a typical set-up. The 56 fader Artemis and the Brio36 combo give Full Sail Live different options of how to use the system. It also supports many different protocols including analogue, AES, MADI, Waves Soundgrid and Dante, which is important for Full Sail Live as the venue works in a mixed protocol environment. In addition, both consoles are connected to Calrec’s Hydra2 network so either console can use any I/O resource on the network.

“It’s a total game changer for us as far as being able to distribute I/O around the facility,” says Vince Lepore, Director, Event Technical Operations, Full Sail University. “We have the new system connected to our video router through a number of different MADI ports, which is tremendously helpful for being able to embed and de-embed audio off of our router. That was something we were unable to do before and that’s given us a lot more flexibility. We can also now have several consoles across campus connected over the Hydra2 network — not just within the performance venue, but over the entire campus.”

When not in use, the consoles are available to students, as well as external clients that come into the space. Full Sail’s diverse prospective means many students can use the audio equipment, which gives them relevant experience for after graduation.
