Calrec goes full throttle with V8 at the NAB2017 Show
"V8 is really an evolution, a progressive suite of tools that supports broadcasters into their next phase of IP development," said Dave Letson, Calrec's vice president of sales. "With remote production and AoIP rapidly becoming a reality for many, V8 allows Calrec's users to progress confidently into the next era. This, combined with higher-resolution audio, ensures that all bases are covered going forward."
In addition, the new V8 software integrates Brio on the Hydra2 network, allowing the console's on-board resources to be available to all other networked resources.
Brio also receives some powerful new features. Users gain stereo- and 5.1-path spill leg access and independence controls. A second compressor/limiter is also available with single- or 3-band options on all channels, groups, and mains, giving users even greater control. The expander/gate in the dynamics section now includes a ducker, complete with a selectable sidechain source that allows the gain reduction to be keyed from audio on any other mono path on the surface.
Brio can now operate at multiple sample rates too, with options of 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz — all without any DSP sacrifices. Brio's processing capacity remains the same at any sample rate.
"Brio has been met by great acclaim across the globe," Letson added. "The new features and networking capability further strengthen Brio's position as the most powerful broadcast console in its class."
