At BroadcastAsia 2018, Calrec Audio will showcase Type R – a new modular, expandable, IP-based radio system that makes use of standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator needs. Its 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.
Also on show will be RP1, a remote production system that comes in a 2U rackmount box and includes Calrec’s Bluefin2 processing. With it, users can capture a wider scope of live events (such as sports, music festivals and news) without having to dedicate an OB van or extra manpower. RP1 contains integrated FPGA-based DSP, enabling a console surface at another facility to control all mixing functionality. The RP1 core manages all the processing for IFB routing and remote monitor mixes, and it does so locally with no latency.
