Calrec Intros Omega/Bluefin Flypack
Calrec Audio will unveil a Flypack version of the Omega with
Bluefin console at IBC in September. Available on the Omega and Zeta consoles, the Flypack is designed for
use in places to which a mobile truck cannot get or is prohibitively
expensive to ship, providing high-end broadcast facilities in otherwise
Calrec says the desks use military-spec connectors to ensure fast, reliable, and
rugged connectivity, offering a highly adaptable solution to OB
requirements without unnecessary expenditure.
“Calrec desks have always been popular for Flypacks and we recently had
eight desks ship to Beijing with NBC Olympics’ Flypacks,” says Calrec
Sales and Marketing Director John Gluck. “Calrec consoles are extremely
robust, compact, and reliable, with redundancy built in at all system
critical points. All our desks have very high fader density, which
allows us to squeeze more faders into a smaller space.”
Calrec’s standard Flypack enables all digital signal processing, power
supplies, and I/O interfacing to be housed in a compact double rack,
which allows the control surface to be mounted on top.
The Flypack is sold with or without a flight case so customers have the
option to custom fit their cases with supplementary equipment, or take
advantage of Calrec’s robust package.
