Calrec will debut its ImPulse1 IP audio processing and routing engine at this year’s IBC. The company says it designed the ImPulse1 as a powerful and cost-effective ST2110 solution for single-console scenarios, joining the multi-console ImPulse. Announced earlier this year, ImPulse1 is a compact 1U solution with an optional second core for redundancy and a new 128-input channel DSP pack offering entry-level pricing.
With the introduction of ImPulse1, Calrec is offering a range of options to suit any size installation. It works with Argo Q and Argo S control surfaces and Calrec Assist, a browser-based GUI ideally suited to remote working, multi-operator or headless operation. Calrec has designed ImPulse1 for small to medium single mixer applications and offers it an all-new DSP license of 128 input channels without compromising its ST2110 capability.
Calrec says that with its small overall form factor, the ImPulse1 is ideal for compact installation sites, such as outside broadcast and fly pack applications, where space is at a premium. Furthermore, it doesn’t compromise on features and DSP power; it has DSP options ranging from 128 to 384 input channels and benefits from the DSP features of the larger ImPulse core.
IBC2023 will be in Amsterdam from Sept. 15–18.
