Description



Brio's comprehensive broadcast feature set supports a wider breadth of broadcasters while retaining the same market-leading levels of quality and customer support which Calrec is renowned for.

The smallest in Calrec's Bluefin2 family, Brio's control surface is unlike any other console. Available in two sizes; Brio 36 with a 36 fader dual-layer surface and the Brio 12 with a 12 fader dual-layer surface at only 484mm wide, both provide more faders in a given footprint than any other comparable audio console.

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" HD touchscreen UI provides quick access to more in-depth control. A bank of illuminating hardware rotary controls give fast and precise control over parameters displayed in the touchscreen UI.

Brio is a mixing console completely focused on the needs of broadcasters. This level of scalable and managed I/O, comprehensive monitoring, surround sound and high bus quantities provides a level of dedicated broadcast functionality that has never been available at this level.

As the market calls for more and more audio mixes to support online content, smaller consoles that possess pure live broadcast features are increasingly desirable. Products in this sector have traditionally had basic capabilities and are not ideally suited to broadcast environments. Brio is the first application-specific alternative.

Brio's compact size means it is extremely portable and quick to install, making it ideal as a general purpose workhorse that can be used as and when needed, and its connectivity with other Hydra2-compatible equipment makes it even more versatile.

Brio is entirely self-contained with I/O available for comprehensive and versatile expansion via Calrec's Hydra2 network.

This means Hydra2's sophisticated management facilities can be utilised for network-wide control, including interfacing with multiple IP networks. This protects the system against any future formats that may emerge and allows the console to sit on multiple networks simultaneously if desired.

Calrec Hydra2 Audio Network

The pre-installed Calrec Hydra2 Module allows for further I/O to be connected to the Brio 12, and provides communication with other consoles via network audio.

A wide variety of audio I/O format options are available via 3 slots, which can be fitted with cards from the Hydra2 modular I/O range.

Extra I/O can be added through the Hydra2 connectivity on the rear of the console, which also allows Brio to network and share audio with other Calrec mixers.
