Calrec to make European debut of Apollo surround-sound console
Calrec Audio will make the European debut of Apollo, a powerful audio console for Dolby 5.1 surround-sound mixing, at IBC2009.
Calrec's Apollo console relies on Bluefin2, the next generation of Calrec's high-density signal processing system, to provide resources at multiple sample rates. At 48kHz, Bluefin2 gives Apollo up to 1020 channel-processing paths, 128 program busses, 96 IFB/track outputs and 48 auxiliaries. At 96kHz, Apollo provides 510 channel-processing paths, 64 program busses, 48 IFB/track outputs and 24 auxiliaries.
Apollo features a second dynamics section in each channel, more than 70 minutes of assignable delay and three independent APFL systems for multioperator use. Processing, power supplies and I/O routing are all contained in an 8RU chassis.
