Calrec Audio Product Preview
New Dante Interface
At BVE 2015 Calrec will showcase its Dante interface, which works in conjunction with Hydra2 across the entire range of Calrec Bluefin2 consoles.
The development gives Dante connectivity to every client on a Hydra2 network via a simple, single-width 3U interface card. This provides 64 audio input and 64 audio output channels, with connectivity via dual-redundant RJ45 Ethernet connectors on the card's front panel.
Dante is a proprietary networking technology developed by Audinate and is currently deployed across the globe to connect many different kinds of pro-audio equipment.

Also on display on Calrec's stand at BVE 2015 will be Apollo and Summa consoles networked using Hydra2 technology. Hydra2 offers more than just a signal transport system. It is also a powerful management tool that provides increased network-wide control of many parameters. Broadcasters can remotely configure mic gain, phantom power, patching, port protection, alias files, virtual patchbays, and access rights.
This added benefit not only streamlines the workflow to make setup configuration quicker and more efficient, but also allows the broadcaster to maximize productivity and gain maximum return in today's fast-paced environment.
