Calrec Audio says its new Type R range of customizable, expandable, flexible radio systems is a response to the rapidly-shifting technological landscape, and is designed to help radio broadcasters adapt to these changing requirements.
According to the company, Type R is built around flexible IP connectivity and has simple, widget-based controls. Physical control panels are limited to three slimline panels: a fader panel, a small soft panel and a larger soft panel, all powered over Ethernet to minimize cabling via COTS hardware.
Capable of running three fully independent console systems from one central processing core, Calrec points out that Type R is easy to expand. Flexible touchscreen control panels can be quickly adapted to suit any production environment.
In addition, explains the company, Type R boasts complex feature sets at an entry-level price and clear and concise control. Bussing, including mix-minus feeds, is quick to assign; EQ and dynamics control is clear and fast. Type R is a radio platform designed for a fast-paced modern environment, added the firm.
