Hong Kong’s TVB installs 10th Calrec console

Posted on: Wednesday 17th of April 2019

TVB, the largest broadcaster in Hong Kong, has purchased its 10thCalrec console, a Brio12. The new Brio joins a fleet of Artemis consoles, including two Artemis Beams and one Artemis Light console that were purchased last year, as part of TVB’s ongoing audio technology upgrade. The Brio12 is being used as a portable console and was most recently used for live sports events including the 2019 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup held in January, and the SIXDAY Series PRURide cycling event that happened in Hong Kong last month.

TVB is also taking advantage of Calrec’s Hydra2 networking and its additional Dante and MADI I/O cards. Mr. Law Yui Wah, Studio Production Department/Assistant Manager at TVB Hong Kong explained, “Connecting via fibre, it’s easy to change the I/O cards to accommodate different productions. We’re using MADI cards for our intercom connection and Dante cards for signal interchanging between a PA console and the broadcast console. The Brio12 is small enough for us to use portably yet offers enough connectivity and power, surpassing other consoles on the market in this price range. This is what makes Calrec stand out from the competition.”

The commissioning was handled by Calrec’s official Hong Kong distributor, Jolly Pro Audio. “By being able to move the Brio around, TVB Hong Kong is taking advantage of the true benefits of the Brio’s versatility as a compact console that doesn’t compromise on quality. TVB is proving that product performance and price point are at the top of its purchasing decisions when it comes to audio consoles,” said Anthony Harrison, International Sales Manager, Calrec.
