Cable TV adds to Artemis setup

Published: ASIA

HONG KONG: Hong Kong-based systems integrator and distributor Jolly Pro Audio has installed a Calrec Audio Artemis digital audio console inside News Studio 3 at Cable TV Hong Kong. The new 40-fader console is the fifth to be implemented at the cable television provider, all of which have been deployed and tested by Jolly Pro Audio, which serves as the manufacturer’s regional distribution partner.

A division of iCable Communications Ltd, Cable TV is Hong Kong’s largest cable television network with more than 100 channels. Its first Calrec console was acquired in 2012 to cater for sports programming. Following that purchase, a 48-fader Artemis was employed in the main news studio, ST1, while 40-fader versions were installed in both its ST2 news and ST9 entertainment studios. The British manufacturer’s Hydra2 network has also been setup.

A 16-port Calrec router core is at the heart of Cable TV’s Hydra2 network, which delivers control and access to all networked audio resources. Hydra2 is also connected to Cable TV’s Waves Sound Grid network via a Waves Sound Grid interface module. This allows complete control of the Waves software applications from the Artemis’ touchscreen.

‘After rigorous evaluation and testing, Cable TV chose the Artemis because it offers the reliability and usability they require to achieve that goal,’ explained Jolly Pro Audio executive director Andy Leung. ‘The Cable TV team also reports that of the audio networks they've worked with, the Hydra2 network is by far the most powerful, flexible, and easiest to expand after initial installation.’

‘We are honoured that Cable TV has become such a loyal customer, and the faith they have placed in Calrec for their entire studio operation is a great testament to the excellence of our consoles and networking solutions,’ said Anthony Harrison, international sales manager at Calrec. ‘Thanks to customers like Cable TV and the outstanding support we've received from Jolly Pro Audio, Calrec is now the premier provider of audio consoles to the Hong Kong broadcast market.’
