Calrec Audio’s Apollo to make European debut at IBC
At IBC2009, Calrec Audio will make its European debut of Apollo, an audio console available for Dolby 5.1 surround sound mixing. The console features an all-new, highly responsive, user-configurable control surface.
At the heart of the console is Bluefin2, the next generation of Calrec's Bluefin high-density signal processing system. At 48kHz, Bluefin2 gives Apollo up to 1020 channel processing paths, 128 program busses, 96 IFB/track outputs and 48 auxiliaries. At 96kHz, Apollo affords 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 multiple operator use. Processing, power supplies, and I/O routing are all contained in a compact, 8U chassis.
