The technology could transform the audio experience
Calrec has announced enhanced versions of its Brio console with the Brio Duet and Brio Medley packages, which the company explains, offer greater channel counts and expanded connectivity as standard at a lower price point.
“With Brio Duet we’ve upgraded the Brio’s base specification, and Brio 36 Duet becomes the baseline Brio console with an increased input channel count of 96 channels (up from 64) to deal with more surround and immersive mixing as well as standard or slim trims, and at a reduced price of £22,500,” said Dave Letson, Calrec’s VP of Sales. “The Brio Medley package adds a Dante or MADI expansion card and a Br.IO I/O box with 24 mic/line inputs, 16 analog outputs and 8 x AES I/Os at a reduced list price of £25,950.”
Letson points out that “both packages provide better value for money and a broader appeal to people working in more specialist areas like smaller outside broadcast units and flypacks.”
For existing Brio customers, Calrec offers an upgrade option to 96 channels on a 64-channel Brio.
Brio is a plug-and-play broadcast console with no DSP sharing. It slots into any broadcast workflow and is expandable for future growth. Its features include a large internal router, multiple monitor outputs and comprehensive built-in I/O.
Calrec also recently announced the launch of a free training module for mixing live broadcasts in Dolby Atmos using the Brio console.
