Calrec Audio announced the international debut of Brio12, a compact, 12-fader audio mixer, at Inter BEE 2017 in Tokyo.
Brio12has the same extensive feature set and mix capabilities as its larger sibling, Brio36, which has been a very successful product for Calrec in Japan.
Brio12 meets the demand for a broadcast mixer that can be used in very tight spaces like small vans and compact control rooms, and at under 450mm wide it is slim enough to fit into standard racks, or be stowed out of the way when not in use.
‘Brio12 is perfect for small-scale productions, or as a sub-mixer or backup mixer for larger productions,’ said Peter Walker, Calrec’s product manager for Brio
With 12 physical dual-layer faders for mixing live sources during broadcast, Brio12 provides extra virtual faders via its user-friendly UI. With 48 input channels and the same buss count as the popular Brio36, the console has plenty of capacity for submixes and VCA slaves. These capabilities also make it ideal for automated production environments, allowing for maximum control over every fader.
‘Brio12 can be installed where there is a requirement to integrate audio control with the vision switcher,’ adds Walker. ‘Brio12 can be quickly added to an existing Hydra2 network and utilise I/O via a range of Hydra2 modules through its integral I/O expansion slots.’
