Hebden Bridge, U.K. (April 26, 2011)--NEP's new Denali California truck, designed for venues with limited space, includes a dual-fader Calrec Apollo console.
With 1080p capability, Denali California supports more than 20 cameras and 20 servers. Carrying a 72 dual-fader Calrec Apollo in its audio room, the standalone truck was designed for live entertainment shows where outside broadcast facility space is limited, like the Super Bowl, the Tony Awards, and the Kennedy Center Honors Gala.
"There's not a lot of parking at the Kennedy Center or at Radio City in Manhattan," said George Hoover, NEP Broadcasting's chief technology officer. "So the audio is handled out of one audio room with a single mixer doing both the podium portion of the awards show as well as all the music. The mixer may have dozens of wireless microphones on the talent plus playback elements and the orchestra. To get the job done, he needs a powerful desk with multiple layers and multiple faders on the main control surface--and that describes the Calrec Apollo."
