Winter Park, FL (May 10, 2018)—Full Sail University has added a pair of Calrec Audio Brio compact audio consoles to provide hands-on training for students.
One of the new Brio consoles was installed as part of the broadcast production curriculum, while the other was installed for use within the university’s performance venue, Full Sail Live. Full Sail University offers both campus and online degree programs in entertainment, media, arts and technology.
In the Show Production Department, an existing Calrec Summa console was previously purchased to bring a broadcast-specific feature set to the Show Production bachelor’s degree program. Its students use the console to mix a broad range of live video and broadcast events. In the Film Department, a new Brio console has been added to the workflow as an upgrade of the previous audio mixing boards.
Duane Moore, course director of broadcast production at Full Sail University, said, “The students are using the Calrec Brio to learn live production audio and to mix sound for their live shows in the broadcast studio. We chose the Brio because Calrec consoles are high-quality, they have the features needed to teach audio for live broadcast and are likely what students will use in the industry after graduating.”
“The Brio console is a big upgrade for our students from the analog board they were using before,” says Jeff Planck, program director of film at Full Sail University. “With the touch of a few buttons, they can now create and use preset ‘shows’ and ‘memories’ that customize the Brio for their specific show. The Brio also provides convenient network interoperability with the other studios on campus featuring Calrec consoles.”
