Russian double first for Calrec

Two 48-fader Artemis Beam consoles have been sold to Moscow’s Television Technical Centre Ostankino for subscriber satellite service NTV-PLUS, marking Calrec’s first foray into Russia.

Calrec has sold two Artemis Beam consoles to Television Technical Centre Ostankino for NTV-PLUS, a Russian subscriber satellite and HD service. The 48-fader desks were installed in the Moscow Television Technical Centre and were used by NTV-PLUS for the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London this year. The project was coordinated through OKNO-TV, one of Calrec’s Russian systems integrators. “We are thrilled about our first sale to the prominent Russian station, NTV-PLUS,” said Mike Reddick, Calrec’s manager of European sales. “We feel it is a very positive first step in forging strong bonds between our companies in what will be a long and mutually beneficial relationship.” The Artemis Beam consoles have been networked together using Calrec’s Hydra2 system, allowing either console to access any I/O on the network. The company also designed a panel that sits in the control surface and houses a Colin Broad SR4 serial remote/synchronizer. This setup enables operators to control multiple playback/record machines from the Artemis desk. “We aspired to find a system to match the requirements of our broadcasting and production facilities,” said Oleg Kolesnikov, CTO at NTV-PLUS. “We believe this choice offers the best answer for live sports productions and studio shows. NTV-PLUS is widely known as a technologically pioneering company in the Russian broadcast market, and this digital audio transition with Calrec allows us to maintain that position.” www.calrec.com
