Calrec Delivers For Liberman Broadcasting
Privately held, minority-owned Spanish-language broadcaster Liberman Broadcasting (LBI Media) produces more than 50 hours of original television programming each week. LBI Media’s fast-paced news studios require adaptable, quick to set up and easy to operate audio solutions. LBI Media relies on Calrec Audio’s Brio 36 and Summa digital audio consoles.
“We chose Calrec based on the company’s reputation within the industry and also to complement the rental trucks we use, the majority of which come standard with Calrec consoles,” says Chris Buchanan, vice president of engineering, Liberman Broadcasting. “We purchased the Brio 36 earlier this year for LBI’s newly launched news operation in our Dallas (Irving, Texas) office, while the Summa was acquired last year as part of a much-needed upgrade at our Burbank, California facility.”
LBI Media relies on both consoles for live programming of its local and national news shows, including Alarma TV, El Mameluco, iTestigo, Noticiero Cierra de Edicion, Noticiero Estrella TV and En Vivo.
As with any studio, real estate is important for LBI’s production spaces. It says the compact form-factor of the Calrec Brio 36 makes it a general-purpose workhorse and its connectivity with the company’s Hydra2 compatible equipment makes it even more versatile.
The Brio 36 provides analog and digital I/O and GPIO, which are built into the surface.
