Hebden Bridge, UK (June 20, 2017)—TV2, one of Hungary's commercial television channels, has upgraded two studios with Calrec's Summa and Artemis Light consoles.
Adam Somodi, sound engineer, TV2 Hungary, noted, "Calrec gave us a huge advantage by allowing us to test the equipment for mixing and recording in a live production situation, running in parallel with our old console, and we saw a large improvement right away."
The 128-channel Summa and Artemis Light are both installed in TV2 Hungary's main broadcast center in Budapest. The Summa is used in the news and morning program studio, and the Artemis Light supports production of musical programs in TV2's largest studio.
A Calrec modular card on the Artemis Light allows integration with SoundGrid's Waves series of audio plug-ins and gives engineers expanded capabilities for the music productions. This, combined with the ability to record all channels via MADI and replay audio, provides support for postproduction.
"Since the Artemis Light and Summa sit on the same Calrec Hydra2 network, we're able to share inputs and outputs between the two studios," Somodi said. "Engineers are able to speed up the workflow and recall their own saved settings on either desk. The Waves plug-ins on the Artemis give us greater capacity and more flexibility than ever before to mix many more types of musical shows."
