Calrec Audio’s VP2 virtual mixing system enables a radio station to reap many of the benefits of using a Calrec console, but without a physical control surface. It relies on Calrec’s Assist software for set-up and control.

Calrec Audio VP2VP2’s 4U-high core comes in three DSP sizes supporting 128, 180 and 240 input channels, and incorporates Calrec’s Hydra2 networking. Calrec Serial Control Protocol (CSCP) allows the audio console to be completely controlled by an automation system.

Assist software can be accessed from multiple locations via a web browser. A technical director/operator can be given basic control functions whereas an engineer can delve deeper to fine tune the set-up or recall different setups as needed.

The Calrec RP1 is a broadcast mixing system in a 2U-high rackmount box, containing Bluefin2 processing. It is designed to address the three major challenges presented by remote production workflows – latency, transport and control. Onboard DSP enables the generation of monitor mixes and IFBs onsite with no latency, Hydra2 interfaces provide a mechanism to output audio in a variety of formats and Calrec’s True Control gives an operator in a remote studio direct control over channel functions.
