Calrec Audio To Reduce List Price Of Omega Console & Cease Zeta Manufacture
“The implementation of Bluefin’s FPGA technology in 2007 introduced a DSP system which is considerably more powerful and reliable than conventional designs,” says Calrec’s Head of Sales and Marketing Henry Goodman. “As Calrec's only non-Bluefin equipped digital console, Zeta will be discontinued, and Omega pricing will be brought in line with our current Zeta pricing, allowing all our customers to benefit from Bluefin.”
With this in mind, Calrec will cease production of the Zeta console at the end of this financial year (March 31st, 2012).
Calrec is offering an opportunity to make final purchases of Zeta consoles, modules, racks and cards. In keeping with the company’s support policy, Calrec will continue to provide component spares and repair services for the Zeta for a minimum of 10 years from shipment date. Should original components or parts become unavailable, Calrec will offer appropriate alternatives, including hardware/software solutions.
Calrec distributors will be contacting existing customers to advise them of the details of the final-purchase offer and to assess their need for consoles, modules and cards.
