At IBC 2014 Calrec introduces a brand new variant on the Summa console. The Summa console offers broadcast-focused facilities presented via a straightforward and intuitive control surface. Allowing broadcasters to scale resources to their requirements Summa is now available with 128 or 180 channels.
Summa with 128 channels has been conceivedas an alternative for broadcasters who do not require the larger channel count of the original Summa console. The Summa control surface has a highly-intuitive GUI, making it suitable for a broad range of operator levels. Control is via a 17-inch multi-touch screen inspired by tablet-technology which is immediately familiar, with a straightforward interface which uses established finger gestures.
Summa 128 has been designed for live broadcast applications with a clear focus on ease of operation, allowing fast and easy access to controls to make it easy to create engrossing broadcast audio. On Summa 128 even complex workflow tasks such as creating mix-minus feeds are simplified.
The console uses Calrec’s award-winning Bluefin2 technology at its core and the same integral Hydra2 router technology as all Bluefin2 consoles, technologies which are in use 24-hours a day at hundreds of facilities across the globe.
