DiGiCo consoles can now be integrated onto the Calrec Hydra2 network via a Hydra2-enabled DiGiCo Multichannel Interface (DMI) card
It’s the first technology release of Calrec’s work with DiGiCo following the 2014 formation of the Audiotonix pro audio group.
Calrec said DiGiCo’s range of cards easily converts audio from one transport protocol to another before being placed in DiGiCo’s ‘anything in, anything out’ Orange Box, or directly into the back of the company’s newest digital mixing console, the S21.
Calrec is also talking to other manufacturers about incorporating this hardware into their broadcast equipment. In making this move, manufacturers can join the Hydra2 family exclusively and benefit from the management tools built into this proprietary audio networking system, said Calrec.
