Hebden Bridge, UK (July 28, 2008)–Calrec Audio plans to unveil a Flypack version of the company’s Omega with Bluefin console at the IBC2008 convention in Amsterdam.
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 impenetrable locations.
“Calrec desks have always been popular for Flypacks–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 desks use military-spec connectors to ensure connectivity, offering an adaptable solution to OB requirements.
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 package.
