NEW CALREC CONSOLE
The IBC2013 is, after all, the International Broadcasting Convention and it should be no surprise that a lot of broadcast-oriented audio products get launched. Calrec has revealed Callisto, a new audio console for live broadcasters. Callisto is designed for broadcast professionals who need to produce creative and engrossing broadcast audio easily, but may not require as many resources as the company’s Apollo and Artemis consoles. Callisto’s mechanical design is a lean construction that keeps components and materials to a minimum. Disciplined power distribution means the console is around 30 percent more efficient than the comparable Artemis Light – Callisto’s closest stable mate. Service access is from the front of the console, and the entire control surface can be replaced by removing just 12 screws (ahem… not that you’re ever going to need to do that, of course). Users control the console via a 17-inch multitouch screen inspired by familiar tablet technology. Callisto’s other large displays are fully configurable to display bus, output, and loudness meters, and feature dedicated metering, routing, and processing information. The physical control surface is available in fixed 32 and 44 fader designs. More information about the Callisto is available at www.calrec.com .
