Hebden Bridge, UK (July 5, 2017)—At Husson University's New England School of Communications (NESCom) in Bangor, ME, Calrec Audio's Brio console is now being used to help prepare students for real-life broadcasting careers.
"Calrec's widespread presence in the broadcasting industry virtually guarantees that our students will come across these desks once they graduate and begin their professional careers. That's why the Brio is a great choice for NESCom," said Edward Goguen, assistant professor, academic director, and audio programs coordinator at NESCom. "With the Summa and now the Brio, we're able to give students a head start on the equipment they'll be using in their jobs after graduation.
The new Brio is currently in use for NESCom studio productions, including the NESCom Connection, a daily news and public affairs TV program produced by the school's video production and journalism students. In service since 2015, the Summa is currently used in broadcasts of live sporting and entertainment events.
Goguen added, "With its more compact size, Brio is perfect for our studio space. And since students using the Brio have already worked with the Summa, they're able to apply concepts they're already familiar with in a slightly different format. Many of our students are thrilled when they hear they'll be able to learn on Calrecs because they know how pervasive the desks are in the 'real world.'"
