UK broadcast and pro audio rental company Plus 4 Audio recently purchased two 44-fader Summa consoles – the company’s first investment in Calrec mixing.

Plus 4 AudioPlus 4 Audio works with many prominent broadcasters including ITV, BBC, Channel 4 and Sky, as well as independent production companies, OB providers and major record labels. Projects include high-value and complex shows including Strictly Come Dancing, the Royal Variety Performance, the Mercury Music Prize and Dancing on Ice.

‘We work with a lot of high-profile clients on many different projects, so it’s important for us to deliver the most relevant and dynamic audio solutions no matter the application whether it’s for a sporting event, live music, or a weekly television entertainment show,’ says Plus 4 Audio MD, Stewart Chaney.

‘We decided to add the Calrec Summa consoles to our product line-up because they offer us the perfect mix of great audio quality, an excellent, easy to use interface and a reasonable price tag. This is a combination that’s hard to find with a lot of today’s consoles, as bigger doesn’t always mean better. What also makes the Summa a perfect choice for us is Calrec’s strong footprint here in the UK market.

‘Many of the freelancers we work with are familiar with the Summa’s layout and design. Our OB clients, for example, like the networking capabilities of the Hydra2 system because it gives them instant connectivity over fibre with other mobile units, saving time and cutting costs.’

‘The rental market is of huge importance to Calrec, and we’re so glad that Plus 4 Audio is taking full advantage of the benefits that the Summa has to offer,’ says Calrec International Sales Manager, Jim Green. ‘We understand that production requirements evolve and the technology has to keep pace whilst keeping within budget. The Summa console has a high level of sophistication and features that represent real value.’
