Bluefin offers twice the amount of processing power of smaller versions in significantly less space for the same price as the Calrec's largest Alpha console.
At NAB2006 Calrec Audio (booth #N917) will unveil Bluefin, a new high density signal processing system that offers twice the amount of processing power of smaller versions in significantly less space for the same price as the company's largest Alpha console. Calrec's Sigma and Zeta consoles and Hydra networking system will also be exhibited.
Bluefin provides 480 equivalent mono signal paths and is capable of providing 78 x full 5.1 surround channels. Bluefin offers this capability on a single DSP card.
Bluefin also generates less heat and uses less power than the existing design, while system redundancy of all processing elements is provided through a second DSP card. Bluefin processing provides full EQ and dynamics to all channels. The system also allows for 8 x 5.1 groups with full EQ and Dynamics, 4 x main outputs, 48 multi-track outputs and 20 auxes.
