Hebden Bridge, U.K. (May 21, 2008)--Calrec Audio and Ross Video have developed a software interface that enables Calrec audio consoles to be controlled remotely by the Ross OverDrive Automated Production Control (APC) system.

For broadcasters, this integration reportedly can mean reduced production costs and more flexibility, in that a single operator can run both video and audio in situations where a full crew is not available or not required, such as for late-night breaking news cut-ins.

The jointly developed protocol enables an operator seated at the video switcher to use OverDrive APC to control auto-fade, or up to 192 individual faders, and to set levels and pre-fade listen (PFL) on the Calrec console.
