Calrec Type R BVE 2019 show debut

Posted on: Monday 11th of February 2019

Calrec is showing its Type R modular, expandable, IP-based radio system for the first time at the Broadcast Video Expo, 26-28 February, at ExCeL, London. Type R makes use of standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator needs. Type R’s physical control system consists of three slimline 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.

At the heart of Type R is a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources to get customers up and running immediately. 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 provides enough flexibility to keep pace with radio’s changing requirements.

Also making its BVE debut is ImPulse core, the next generation audio processing platform. The ImPulse core is a powerful audio processing and routing engine with AES67 and SMPTE 2110 connectivity. Read our 3-page description of the new platform here. It is compatible with existing Apollo and Artemis control surfaces, providing a simple upgrade path for existing Calrec customers.

ImPulse core provides 3D immersive path widths and panning for NGA (next generation audio) applications, 5.1, 5.1.2, 5.1.4, 7.1, 7.1.2 and 7.1.4 input channels, busses, monitoring and metering are available. Height and 3D pan controls are provided, and paths of all widths can co-exist within a mix and be routed to/from each other with flexible panning and downmixing built in.

Calrec’s compact Brio consoles will also be on show. The Brio36 includes an impressive range of on board I/O so it’s operational straight out of the box. It also has full Hydra2 network compatibility and a sensitive price point that doesn’t reflect the full and rich broadcast feature set. Calrec is supported at BVE 2019 by UK Brio partner Synthax Audio.
