Calrec Audio will present Artemis, “an audio console with routing and processing power that belies its modest footprint,” at the 2010 SVG League Technology Summit, in New York City on Dec 13 and 14, the company says in a written statement.
Artemis is based on the award-winning Apollo platform and, like Apollo, relies on Calrec’s most advanced technology, Bluefin2 for processing and Hydra2 for routing.
Bluefin2—the next generation of Calrec's trademark Bluefin “high density signal processing” platform—enables Artemis to provide substantial resources at multiple sample rates, the company says. Running at 48 kHz, Bluefin2 gives Artemis up to 680 channel processing paths, 128 program busses, 64 IFB/track outputs, and 32 auxiliaries.
Hydra2, Calrec's next-generation networking system, uses high-capacity 8192 x 8192 crosspoint routers while making available a variety of I/O units to provide analog, AES, MADI, SDI, and Dolby E formats. All use copper or fiber connectivity and can be fitted with GPIO cards. Console routers can stand alone, or be connected to form large networks.
In addition, Artemis features include a second compressor/limiter in each channel; more than 70 minutes of assignable delay; and three independent APFL systems for multiple operator use. As always, Calrec engineers have designed the infrastructure so that the desk does not share any resources, making each function available to the user at all times.
