Canada (March 24, 2021)—Canada-based Dome Productions has unveiled Gateway, a new all-IP SMPTE 2110 OB truck outfitted with a Calrec Apollo digital audio console that is currently being used for TSN and Rogers SportsNet on their hockey broadcasts.
“We’re excited to take advantage of optimized and new workflows in all formats — HD, 3G and UHD. Now, virtual paths can be dynamically connected to change workflows depending on the show requirements,” said Al Karloff, manager of engineering services, Dome Productions.
Dome has been using Calrec consoles for 20 years and all different generations of the consoles are still active in the company’s fleet. The Apollo was commissioned by Canada-based SC Media.
Jean Daoust, SC Media founder and president, says, “The Apollo was the only console that met Dome’s requirements; no other model could offer a surface with 144 faders, or the mix power of over 1,000 input channels. We’re proud to be partnered with companies such as Calrec and Dome Productions. The newfound addition of Calrec to our AV portfolio has opened new doors for us in the broadcast media vertical, as well as provided incredibly innovative solutions to our already valued customers. The Gateway truck is an incredible project, and we look forward to building upon this success for all parties involved.”
