HD broadcast audiodemands cutting-edgetechnology. Embracethe future of sound with Apollo.
The global transition to HDis revolutionary – perhapsthe most radical changein the broadcasting arenasince the move fromblack-and-white TV to color.Systems designed to handleanalog video or even digitalSD cannot be used for HDoperations – a comprehensiveoverhaul of both equipmentand behind-the-scenesinfrastructure is necessary,at all levels of broadcastproduction, from capture andediting to playout.In sound, high-resolution5.1 is emerging as thestandard for HD audio,requiring a complete technicalrenewal to produce truesurround for broadcast.At every level of the audioproduction chain, where therewere previously two audiochannels, six are now necessaryfor true 5.1 and there is steadypressure to move from 48kHzto 96kHz and beyond. Neitherbroadcasters or broadcastequipment manufacturers canafford to fall behind.Throughout Calrec's 50year history, its team ofinnovators have anticipatedsuch major changes andconsistently provided superiorproducts which have allowedforward-thinking broadcastersto remain a step ahead.Calrec introduced theworld’s rst true stereobroadcast console and therst point-source surroundmicrophone in the 1970s,anticipating the growth ofmulti-channel broadcast audio.When Calrec produced theworld’s rst digitally controlledanalog broadcast console inthe early 1980s, the companypredicted the shift fromdiscrete-circuit mixing consolesand the separation of controlsurfaces from networkedprocessing hardware.In 2007 Calrec producedBluen, the rst DSPprocessing engine based onFPGA (Field ProgrammableGate Array) technology, whichenabled broadcast consolesto work efciently with truediscrete-channel 5.1 surroundfor the rst time.Today, broadcasters needmore and more digital audiochannels at ever-higherresolutions. They need moreand more processing powerto handle the increasingchannel count and moreassignable, more ergonomiccontrol surfaces to deal withthe increased workload thatHD broadcasting demands.Naturally, Calrec already hasthe answer to all of theseconcerns.
The changing ace o broadcast
