The new trucks, dubbed “Larkspur” and “Dynasty,” will also be using Calrec’s Hydra networking system, which allows consoles to share I/O resources and to control data via Ethernet connectivity. “Larkspur” has already seen service, being deployed in late July for several sporting events. “Dynasty” is scheduled to hit the road later this summer.
