The smallest in Calrec’s Bluefin2 family, the Brio compact digital broadcast audio console is entirely self-contained, with analogue and digital I/O and GPIO built into the surface.

Additional expansion I/O slots allow for further I/O integration, while fitting an available Hydra2 module makes it possible to connect to and share audio over Calrec’s Hydra2 network.

Connecting to Hydra2 brings  management facilities for network-wide control, including interfacing with multiple video- and audio-over-IP networks such as SMPTE 2022, Dante, AES67, Ravenna, and SoundGrid. Multiformat support protects the system against any future formats.

At 892mm wide, the 36 dual-layer fader surface provides more faders in a given footprint than any other audio console. It gives instant access to a large number of audio paths, whilst an intuitive 15.6-inch HD touchscreen UI provides quick access to more in-depth control. A bank of illuminating hardware rotary controls gives ready control over parameters displayed in the touchscreen UI.

‘Brio provides something unique at this price point – a mixing console completely focused on the needs of broadcasters and broadcast infrastructures,’ says Calrec Vice President of Sales, Dave Letson. ‘This amount of scalable and managed I/O, comprehensive monitoring, surround sound, and high bus quantities provides a degree of dedicated broadcast functionality that has never been available at this level.

‘As the market calls for audio mixes to support online content, smaller consoles that possess pure live broadcast features are increasingly desirable. Products in this sector have traditionally had basic capabilities and are not ideally suited to broadcast environments. Brio is the first application-specific alternative for broadcasters who operate in this environment and provides dedicated broadcast features at a very aggressive price point.

‘Brio’s compact size means it is extremely portable and quick to install, making it ideal as a general-purpose workhorse that users can deploy as and when needed, and its connectivity with other Hydra2-compatible equipment makes it even more versatile.’
