Calrec Audio's Highlights
Calrec is showing its Brio compact console and
its RP1 Remote Production Unit at CABSAT...
Calrec's Brio Console is the
most powerful and compact digital
broadcast audio console in its class,
with a comprehensive broadcast
feature set that supports a wider
breadth of broadcasters.
The smallest in Calrec's Bluefin2
family, Brio is only 892 millimetres
wide, and the dual-layer, 36-fader
surface provides more faders in a
given footprint than any other audio
Based on Calrec's 20 years of digital
development, Brio's uncluttered,
compact, and configurable surface
gives instant access to a large number
of audio paths whilst an intuitive
15.6-inch HD touch-screen UI provides
quick access to more in-depth control.
A bank of illuminating hardware
rotary controls gives fast and precise
control over parameters displayed in
the touch-screen UI.
Brio is entirely self-contained, with
analogue and digital I/O and GPIO
built into the surface. Additional
expansion I/O slots allow for further
I/O integration, and fitting an

Remote Production Unit
available Hydra2 module makes it
possible to connect to and share audio
over Calrec's Hydra2 network.
Calrec's RP1 Remote Production
Unit is a unique live-broadcast
product that directly addresses
an increasingly more prevalent
requirement for high-quality content
from remote locations.
Remote production offers the
ability to capture a broader range of
live events, such as sports, news, or
regional music festivals. Broadcasters
cannot always justify the time or
expense of sending a dedicated
outside broadcast truck and a team
of skilled on-site operators for these
niche events, but they must always
ensure that the same high broadcast
standards are met.
Calrec's new RP1 remote production
engine is a 2U core that contains
which enables a console surface at
another facility to control all mixing
functionality. The RP1 core manages
all of the processing for IFB routing
and remote monitor mixes, and it does
so locally with no latency. This level of
integration and remote control makes
it simple for any remote mix engineer
to set up IFB mixes and eradicates
any delay for remote listeners or
The RP1 core quickly embeds
audio into existing video-transport
mechanisms, while its modular I/O
backbone accepts any of Calrec's I/O
cards. This versatility means the RP1
can connect via analogue, AES, MADI,
SDI, and the latest AoIP solutions from
AES67, Ravenna, Dante, and SMPTE
Egripment Presents Carbon Fibre
Telescoping Xtreme T10 Crane
Egripment Support Systems has announced the production of its latest
Carbon Fibre Telescoping Crane 'The Egripment Xtreme T10'...
manufacturer of high-end camera
support systems and remote broadcast
solutions for the film and broadcast
industries, is presenting its new Carbon
Fibre Telescoping Xtreme T10 Crane.
"Egripment has long been known for
its outstanding line of remote camera
cranes and has built a reputation as
a world-leader in the manufacturing
of professional camera support
equipment," says Richard Villhaber,
Sales Director for Egripment.
"Like all Egripment products, the
Xtreme T10 Telescoping Crane is
the result of a perfect combination
of top quality design and advanced
breaking Telescoping Xtreme T12
Carbon Fibre Crane first produced in
2010, Egripment has now created a
further extension of this line of cranes
with more innovation and creative
Ready for Virtual or Augmented
operation: The Xtreme T10 is not
just a scaled down version of the
Xtreme T12. Instead, Egripment
utilised its Carbon Fibre technology
and engineering experience with both
conventional and telescoping cranes
over the last 35+ years, to produce a
new Ground Up engineering model,
designed around the need for precise
and smooth operation for Augmented
and Virtual Reality.
Telescoping Crane: Rather than
first building a crane, then
deciding how to make it work
for this fast growing segment of
the broadcast and film industry,
the Xtreme T10 directly
toward AR / VR utilisation.
However, because of the ease of
use designed into every Egripment
product, the Xtreme T10 is also
completely suitable for conventional
Telescoping Crane use in the industry.
Carbon Fibre: Use of laid up
carbon fibre technology, along with
cold-drawn, rolled carbon bearing
steel, enabled Egripment to create a
lightweight, fast action, and incredibly
smooth crane operation.
Dolly: In addition to the Xtreme T10
Telescoping Crane, Egripment also
created an entirely new dolly and
telescoping column to augment the
operation of this crane arm.
Encoded Axis: All axes of the crane
* Very easy to switch from
underslung to overslung;
* Max height and length
of the arm is
to min length
arm, dolly and telescoping column
may be fully encoded to become an
integral part of any AR / VR system.
Economical: Whether an operator's
needs include the best and latest
technology for Augmented and
Virtual Reality, or you just need a
100% reliable, smooth and easy to
set up and use telescoping crane, the
Egripment Xtreme T10 will suit your
needs at a very economical cost.
Egripment Xtreme T10 Crane
* Telescopic range
* Maximum telescoping
arm speed is 2.1mtr/7ft
* The weight of the arm
is only 275kg/605lbs.
