NEP Expands All-Calrec Fleet With Two New Artemis Beam Consoles
December 29, 2011
PITTSBURGH and HEBDEN
BRIDGE, U.K.: Calrec Audio announced that NEP Supershooters bought two Calrec Artemis Beam mixing consoles
for its all-Calrec fleet. The Artemis consoles will be installed in two new HD trucks
that will get rolling in the spring. Supershooters has more than 60 OB units
worldwide, and is Calrec’s oldest and largest U.S. customer.
Supershooters’ domestic fleet is deployed throughout North America,
with occasional trips to Hawaii, South America, and Australia. The new Artemis consoles
will be installed in ND 5 and ND 6, trucks that are bound for NHL hockey, golf,
and other live sporting events on behalf of a major U.S. broadcast and cable network.
“Because the desks support the MADI
interface, we can move up to 64 audio signals across one fiber/coax cable. So instead
of running big, fat, heavy cables across a stadium, we can just run a few thin lines--which
are sometimes already installed. It makes for easier setup and more elegant interfacing
among audio consoles, routing switchers, and multitrack audio recorders,” said George
Hoover, chief technology officer of NEP Broadcasting. “Plus Calrec consoles have
the highest density of processing, which is important in a truck where you need
a very powerful, capable desk in a very small footprint.”
