A modular, expandable, IP-based mixing system, Type R uses standard networking hardware and soft panels which can be tailored to operator needs. It has just three hardware panels to create a variety of system types, ties in with Calrec Assist for mixing in the cloud, and provides mix facilities for up to three independent mixers to hang off one system core.

Why you need a Type R for Radio

Type R’s flexible IP core enables broadcasters to benefit from virtual working practices and automated broadcast workflows on a cost-effective SMPTE 2110-compliant IP backbone. Type R provides fully automated programming with real-time adjustment of unpredictable external factors, either via the web or via highly portable dedicated hardware elements.
