Earlier this year Calrec secured planning permission to build a purpose-designed manufacturing facility on its Nutclough Mill site in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.
Calrec has always been based in Hebden Bridge, and Nutclough Mill has been its global headquarters for the last 25 years. All Calrec equipment is designed, built and tested from this location – [...]
Over the last 19 weeks we have enjoyed a slice of audio broadcast network pie every Wednesday in a bold attempt to trace the history of audio broadcast networks from simple patchbays through the adoption of control protocols and the promise of total interoperability.
Our aim was to try and explain the background and technology behind data [...]
Recently we’ve looked at how even ageing serial control protocols are being incorporated into the broadcast networks of the future.
But not all control protocols are decades old — some are still being developed, and EMBER is one of the most promising: a fully-featured, open source protocol whose capabilities closely reflect the requirements of modern broadcasters. [...]
Last week we looked at how older serial control protocols used to interface and operate broadcast equipment are being incorporated into new audio networking standards, and how they are planned for incorporation in the interoperable video and audio networking protocols of the future.
Broadcast audio hardware manufacturers are currently providing compatibility with audio/video control protocols in [...]
Over the past weeks, we’ve looked at the current efforts to create common standards for interfacing broadcast equipment over a data network, and to provide some measure of interoperability between audio and video equipment. But recent protocols and standards such as Ravenna, AVB, and X192 are only the latest in a series of efforts that [...]
