The Calrec Audio’s Artemis Light digital broadcast audio console is one of the highlights of the new 53-foot state-of-the-art- production trailer from Clark Media, an OB truck ready to meet the demands of native 4K UHD and HD productions such as sports events, award programs, live game shows or breaking news stories. Artemis Light is the smallest member of the Artemis family. Even so, it can package 240 DSP channels into its 4U core.
In addition to its user-friendly 5.1 audio mixing suite, the trailer includes other avant-garde components: Sony 4K/HD cameras, 4K reference monitors, a Grass Valley Kayenne production switcher and Korona panel for second-screen feeds, and 24 channels of 4K recording.
“As one of the leading consoles in the broadcast industry, we felt confident selecting Calrec and, as expected, the Artemis can’t be beat,” said Stephen Sharp, Chief Engineer for Clark Media. “It provides us with the flexibility we need for the wide variety of events we do with the truck. The I/O is very easy to configure. Anyone who has ever used Calrec before will be very comfortable with it almost immediately. In addition, Calrec’s customer service is always very good and that is very important.”
“We are very excited to have Clark Media continually turn to Calrec for its mobile production needs,” added David Lewty, Regional Sales Manager, Calrec Audio America. “The company affords its customers with some of the most powerful 4K, UHD and HD solutions available, and our Artemis Light console is the perfect complement to Clark’s world-class and future-proofed OB fleet.”
Clark’s production trailers have been involved in the coverage of first-rate events: the PBS’ Presidential convention coverage, NBC’s Rose Parade 2018; NBC’s Golden Globes 2018; Netflix’s “Beastmaster;” Audi’s “Think Faster” commercial; and numerous concerts, network up-fronts and 4K shows for New York Fashion Week designers.
