Crest introduces CV-20 mixing console
At this year’s InfoComm, Crest Audio introduced the CV-20 mixing console, a flexible VCA audio solution designed for applications such as front-of-house, monitors and monitors from front-of-house. The CV-20 is available in 24, 32, 40, 48 and 56 mono input configurations with four-band sweepable EQ and fully parametric midfrequency control on each mono input. A feature set of 12 aux sends, eight subgroup assignments and L/C/R panning to the left/right and mono busses provide a wealth of audio routing options.
Standard on all CV-20 frames are eight stereo input channels consisting of four mic-line channels and four dual-line channels with the same full assignment capabilities as the mono input channels, plus eight VCA masters, 12 aux masters, eight subgroups and separate left/right/mono controls that can be fader reversed to allow fader control of the aux masters.
The CV-20 also features 128 VCA assignment and 144 mute scenes with MIDI control, 16 mute groups, an 11 x 4 matrix that is expandable to 19 x 4, full dynamics on all subgroups and main busses (also routable to the aux masters) and full metering on all main and auxiliary outputs.
Available options include meter-bridge kits to monitor all outputs in VU and a bus link module kit for linking together two CV-20 consoles. The CV-20 can use its internal power supply as well as an optional, redundant externally powered, factor corrected power supply.
