At IBC2019 Calrec is showing its Type R modular, expandable, IP-based radio system.
Type R makes use of standard networking technology and combines it with configurable soft panels that can be tailored to operator needs. Type R’s physical control system consists of three slimline panels: a fader panel, a large soft panel and a small soft panel. Each is compatible with COTS hardware and powered over Ethernet to keep cabling to a minimum.
At the heart of Type R is a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources to get customers up and running immediately. A single core can power up to three independent mixing environments, with no sharing of DSP resources.
“Whether used as independent studio consoles, microphone processors or utility mixing, the ability to use multiple mixing engines combined with the versatility of an AES67 compatible network, allows users to keep pace with radio’s changing requirements,” explains the company.
