CABSAT 2016: Calrec’s Apollo and Artemis V4.0 Software Makes Middle Eastern Debut
At CABSAT 2016, Calrec will showcase V4.0, the latest software enhancement for the company’s Apollo and Artemis consoles. Building on the acclaimed software and hardware upgrades launched in V3.0 last year, this latest software version presents even more features.
“This year we are sharing our CABSAT stand with our sister company, DiGiCo, and demonstrating how DiGiCo consoles can easily integrate onto Calrec’s Hydra2 network using a Hydra2 interface card in DiGiCo’s ‘anything in, anything out’ Orange Box,” says Anthony Harrison, International Sales Manager, Calrec Audio. “The Orange Box takes a variety of DiGiCo Multichannel Interface cards that easily convert audio from one transport protocol to another. This easy connectivity is of real benefit to many of our customers, operators, and partners in the Middle Eastern, African, and South Asian markets, and CABSAT is the perfect forum for meeting those people and strengthening those relationships.”
New features include send levels on faders that allow the user to change the path level indicators on the fader to “aux send” level, admin-level protection of bus widths that are stored in the show memory for quick and easy changes, and meter highlighting when a fader is touched.
V4.0 is available for all consoles with the Concord processor upgrade. With this hardware upgrade, Calrec made significant performance improvements in order to facilitate the many new features.
Visitors to CABSAT will also have the opportunity to see the advances launched in V3.0, which included a new processing mode, path presets, user-configurable wild controls, multilayer routing interrogation, stereo spill, additional meter scales, and patchable oscillator sources.
