Calrec has sold its first Callisto audio console to American OB company Token Creek Mobile Television, who also purchased an Artemis Beam console. The Callisto, which was launched at IBC2013, will be installed in a new truck destined to cover high school and college sports, as well as corporate and entertainment events, among others. The Artemis Beam has been installed in an existing HD unit that covers a wide variety of applications. "We have two other Calrec desks besides the Artemis Beam and the Callisto, and we've always been very happy with them, so when we decided to build new trucks, Calrec was our first choice," said Brendan Clark, Token Creek's director of engineering. Token Creek ordered a Callisto console with 44 faders and a 64 x 64 mic/line, 72 AES, and four MADI I/O configuration, as well as a GPIO control option. The Artemis Beam console has been installed in Token Creek's Chippewa HD mobile unit. It is a 64-fader console configured for 256 x 256 MADI, 128 x 128 AES, and 64 x 64 analogue I/O. "By adding two more Calrec consoles to its fleet, Token Creek now has the capability to serve just about any size production or budget," said Henry Goodman, Calrec's head of sales and marketing. "The Callisto gives Token Creek a cost-effective console with all the features and reliability it has come to rely on from Calrec. Selling the first Callisto console to a long-time customer such as Token Creek is especially gratifying because it tells us they have the continued confidence to invest in our newest products." The Callisto console will make its US debut at AES 2013, and will begin shipping in spring 2014. www.calrec.com
