Lyon Video Adds Calrec Console
May 6, 2010
Lyon Video, a Columbus, Ohio-based video and film production/post company, has selected a Calrec Audio Apollo audio console for its new high-definition truck, the MU11.
The Apollo selected boasts 144 faders and Calrec’s Hydra2 networking system that provides multiformat I/O for the console.
“We chose the Apollo console because we believe it will give us a technical edge, particularly in providing tough mixes on extremely big shows,” said Chad Snyder, Lyon Video’s account manager. “Apollo is a truly impressive digital desk, and its 144 faders give the audio operator extremely fast access to sources.”
The Apollo also incorporates Calrec’s Bluefin2 high-density signal processing system, which can provide up to 1,020 channel processing paths at 48 kHz, along with 128 program busses, 96 IFB/track outputs and 48 auxiliaries.
The MU11 truck is expected to be put into service in August.
