Wimbledon TV Studios installs Calrec console15 May 2014
Roll to Record, NEP Broadcasting’s UK-based provider of custom studios and control rooms, has installed a Calrec Audio console in the Wimbledon TV Studios complex in London.
Head of sound at NEP Roll to Record Paul Fournier, says: “Having the new Calrec console in place means we can easily attract more customers to our production service at Wimbledon Studios.”
“Having a Calrec console in a facility always sells. Calrec is a well-known brand with proven reliability, and there are plenty of freelancers who already know how to operate the consoles. That’s why we are a Calrec company.”
NEP installed a 40-fader Artemis console along with three remote stageboxes, one remote AES box, and a dual MADI box.
A modular I/O box has been built into the racks in the master control room to provide further analogue and digital inputs and outputs along with GPIO control.
The console is built into the infrastructure of the studio, however the control surface can be moved easily from one production control room to another because it requires only two fibre connections.
Calrec’s UK sales manager Jim Green, says: “We’ve enjoyed a long-standing relationship with NEP, and the company uses Calrec consoles almost exclusively. This installation reinforces that relationship and the level of confidence NEP has in our products.”
“The new console leaves NEP well-positioned to take on more work at the Wimbledon Studios and be ready for any show that comes its way.”
In addition to this recent purchase by Roll to Record, NEP Visions, NEP’s outside broadcast arm in the UK has rented a 64-fader Artemis console to aid coverage of the forthcoming 2014 Wimbledon Championships tennis tournament.
