Los Angeles, CA (January 25, 2021)—Los Angeles-based broadcast audio engineering company and rental service Drop Ship Audio in recently added a Calrec Artemis Beam console to its inventory and is using it on a popular reality show in its fourth season, installed in a studio with a major U.S. network.
Drop Ship Audio is no stranger to Calrec. The company owns two Brio digital audio consoles and, previously, a Summa console. With regard to its new Artemis Beam, company owner Sean Prickett said, “We’d been looking for a larger, full size fly-pack console to replicate more of the experience you would have in a traditional TV truck. I mixed the previous three seasons of this reality show for a major network on an Apollo, and the ability to have the same workflow and familiarity as the previous seasons made the Artemis an obvious and easy choice for our work on this fourth season.”
Prickett also uses Calrec’s Hydra2 networking capabilities, which provide scalable audio networking with other consoles and routers so that a large number of inputs and outputs can be shared and controlled regardless of the console’s location. In the console’s current configuration, they are using five Hydra2 boxes for I/O.
He continued, “As a company owner, reliability and support were at the forefront of the decision and we know that Calrec delivers on both fronts. Another big selling point is whether I am mixing a show or one of my colleagues is, I know they will be comfortable and familiar with the console, which saves a lot of time.”
