Brio is the most powerful and compact digital broadcast audio console in its class. It has a comprehensive broadcast feature set to support a wider breadth of broadcasters, and the same market-leading levels of quality and customer support which Calrec is renowned for.
The smallest in Calrec’s Bluefin2 family, Brio’s control surface is unlike any other console. At only 892mm wide with a 36 dual-layer fader surface, Brio is entirely self-contained with analogue and digital I/O, and GPIO, built into the surface. Additional expansion I/O slots are also fitted to allow for further I/O to be connected. A Hydra2 module can be fitted to connect to and share audio over Calrec’s Hydra2 network.
This means Hydra2’s sophisticated management facilities can be utilised for network-wide control, including interfacing with multiple Video and Audio over IP networks such as SMPTE2022, Dante, AES67, Ravenna and Soundgrid. This protects the system against any future formats that may emerge and allows the console to sit on multiple networks simultaneously if desired.
With lots of delay resource, dynamics, integrated talkback, and multiple monitor outputs, Brio is broadcast-ready with no compromise or workarounds.
The H2Hub provides a network distribution node that can be used to connect from a router up to 4 x external connections which may be I/O boxes or other Hubs to form a local array of I/O connectivity.
A single connection from any router can be switched via the H2Hub to multiple I/O units, and even another H2Hub if further I/O distribution is required – in fact 3 x H2Hubs can be daisy-chained together. The H2Hub’s connection and distribution options make it ideal for forming ad hoc networks, especially when combined with the Fieldboxes and other Calrec I/O infrastructure.
Hydra2 provides seamless, scalable audio networking of audio mixing consoles with routers and I/O interfaces, allowing for a large numbers of inputs and outputs to be shared and controlled irrespective of location. Hydra2 does not compromise audio quality, performs with negligible latency and is founded on comprehensive, built-in fault detection and redundancy. Many of the world’s most successful broadcasters rely on Hydra2 infrastructure for live on-air application in both fixed and mobile installations every day.
At the heart of Hydra2 is the 8192² Calrec router (4096² on Summa and Artemis Light). Networks become more advanced when multiple routers are connected together to add additional mixing consoles, or to increase the amount of I/O connections available. Routers, mixing consoles and I/O can all be easily connected to the network as and when needed.
Hydra2 provides 1-to-n routing; input sources may be routed to any number of destinations in mixed formats, removing the need for external splits, distribution amplifiers and format convertors. Sources can be routed to multiple consoles, to multiple DSP inputs on each console and directly to output destinations all at the same time.
I/O units connect to a Hydra2 router via a fibre link and can carry 512 channels of 24 bit 48KHz audio in each direction simultaneously, along with control and error detection data. Bandwidth between routers can be increased in multiples of 512 channels by adding additional Hydra2 links between them.
The two-channel CEDAR DNS 2 hosts a DNS algorithm that requires nothing more than switching on the Learn function that identifies and adapts to the background noise, and dialling in the amount of noise attenuation required. Retaining the near-zero latency of all its predecessors, CEDAR DNS 2 is suitable for use in all situations.
CEDAR DNS 2 offers analogue line and microphone inputs (the latter with optional 48V phantom powering), an AES3/AES11 digital input and both analogue and digital outputs.

Ferrofish have again delivered a fully featured, easy-to-use and affordable high-quality AD/DA converter in the shape of the new Pulse 16 DX. This is the natural progression from the Pulse 16 MX, but now with Dante through its two RJ45 connectors and expands any Dante audio network via its 16 AD/DA Cirrus Logic converters.
The new Pulse 16 DX offers the same sound quality, functionality and flexibility as the Pulse 16, and like the Pulse 16 MX offers a considerable channel count with the addition of MADI I/O; 16 x 16 balanced analogue inputs and outputs, 4 x ADAT I/O ports provide a full 16 x 16 channel operation even in 96 kHz SMUX mode, and 1 x MADI I/O (Optical) for transferring 64 x 64 discrete audio channels. MADI users are given the choice to operate in multimode or singlemode with easy-to-switch SFP modules that allow reconfiguration without the need of a factory modification.
The Ferrofish Pulse16 DX can also function as a format converter. For example, you are able to convert MADI to Dante or maybe add 16 analogue channels to an incoming MADI stream and route them onto your Dante network.
KA1-1 is built into a 2U, quarter-rack, light weight aluminum chassis.

AdaptEar® is a discrete device that plugs in line between a PMR or broadcast communications system and the users earpieces. It provides the user with protection against high sound levels.
To provide maximum protection the sensitivity of the AdaptEar® should be adjusted before use, by the user, to match the sensitivity of the earpieces they are using and the intended listening period. Providing the user with the ability to change the sensitivity, allows them to set AdaptEar® for use with different earpieces, for example some AdaptEar® users have generic earpieces for low ambient noise conditions, changing to custom moulded in ear monitors with custom moulded attenuators for high ambient noise environments.
In operation excessive signal levels from the PMR or broadcast communications system are limited and cause the limiting light of the AdaptEar® to flash or illuminate, not only informing the user that limiting is taking place and they are protected but also that they might be advised to turn down the volume of the source. This feature also enables the user to test the unit is operational before use.
AdaptEar® allows the user to safely connect earpieces, using the appropriate Factory Accessories cables to a wide range of communications devices.
AdaptEar® has two inputs, a 6 pin latching miniDIN primary source and a 4 pole 3.5 jack Aux In for a secondary source which enables the simultaneous connection and monitoring of other audio sources.
