The changing face of broadcast

Celebrating 50 years in audio, Calrec Audio supplies audio broadcast mixing consoles which are relied on by the world’s most successful broadcasters. Formed as a microphone manufacturer in 1964, Calrec’s reputation for build quality, reliability and audio performance has made them an industry benchmark across the world.

Since the launch of its first audio console in 1971, Calrec Audio has been exclusively dedicated to the design and manufacture of broadcast audio mixing consoles.

Calrec understands what is most important to modern broadcast facilities, and has constantly strived to ensure its customers are kept one step ahead of the changing needs of the broadcast environment.

All Calrec products are designed, manufactured and tested at Calrec’s Nutclough Mill headquarters in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, England. From original concept through R&D to state-of-the-art production, every step of the manufacturing process and every element of development is carried out in-house. This ensures the absolute integrity of the product development process, and guarantees a quality standard unsurpassed in the broadcast console marketplace.

Throughout the decades Calrec has earned an outstanding reputation for innovation, and has a well documented history of technological world firsts.

Today, broadcasters need more and more digital audio channels at ever-higher resolutions. They need more and more processing power to handle the increase and more assignable, more ergonomic control surfaces to deal with the increased workload that HD – and now 3D – broadcasting demands.

Naturally, Calrec already has the answer to all of these concerns, and is why Calrec’s expertise, experience and technology is trusted and endorsed by the world’s most successful broadcasters.

Alongside DiGiCo and Allen & Heath, Calrec is part of the Audiotonix group of British console companies.
