Calrec Brio V8 software Calrec has announced V8 software and other enhancements for its Brio broadcast mixing console.

V8 introduces a number of powerful developments across the Calrec product range, including improved RP1 support, switchable 96kHz/48kHz sample rates, and further integration of Calrec’s AoIP interface. In addition, it integrates Brio on the Hydra2 network, allowing the console’s onboard resources to be made available to all other resources on an audio network.

‘V8 is really an evolution, a progressive suite of tools that supports broadcasters into their next phase of IP development,’ says Calrec VP of Sales, Dave Letson. ‘With remote production and AoIP rapidly becoming a reality for many, V8 allows Calrec’s users to progress confidently into the next era. This, combined with higher-resolution audio, ensures that all bases are covered going forward.’

Other new features include stereo- and 5.1-path spill leg access and independence controls. A second compressor/limiter is also available with single- or three-band options on all channels, groups and mains, giving greater control. The expander/gate in the dynamics section now includes a ducker, complete with a selectable sidechain source that allows the gain reduction to be keyed from audio on any other mono path on the surface.

Brio can now operate at multiple sample rates too, with options of 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz – all without any DSP sacrifices ensuring processing capacity remains the same at any sample rate.

‘Brio has been met by great acclaim across the globe,’ Letson adds. ‘The new features and networking capability further strengthen Brio’s position as the most powerful broadcast console in its class.’
