Calrec has surpassed 100 installations of its Bluefin2 high-density signal-processing (HDSP) technology with a sale to BBC Wales, who installed a 40-fader Artemis Beam console with Hydra2 audio routing capability in a newly renovated studio at its Cardiff facility. This is BBC Wales' second Artemis console. It joins nine other Artemis desks and one Apollo desk – all equipped with Bluefin2 – in BBC operations throughout the United Kingdom. "Calrec manufactures high-spec products in low numbers, and we only launched Bluefin2 technology at NAB in 2009, so to sell 100 consoles in three years is a significant achievement," said Henry Goodman, head of sales and marketing at Calrec. "This milestone is an indication of the popularity and success of the current product range, and it's especially fitting that the BBC plays a role in that success because it is our longest standing customer." www.calrec.com
