Brio 12 makes its debut at Inter BEE 2017

Calrec Audio has announced the international debut of Brio12, a compact, 12-fader audio mixer, at Inter BEE 2017. Brio12 has the same powerful feature set and mix capabilities as its larger sibling, Brio36, which has seen unrivalled success in the region.

Brio12 meets the demand for a broadcast mixer that can be used in very tight spaces like small vans and compact control rooms, and at under 450mm or 18” wide it is slim enough to fit into standard racks or be stowed out of the way when not in use.

“Brio12 is perfect for small-scale productions, or as a sub-mixer or backup mixer for larger productions,” said Peter Walker, Calrec’s product manager for Brio. “Inheriting a rich feature set and powerful surround capability from its larger sibling, Brio12 removes the limitations on ambition and creativity imposed by mixers of comparable size and price-point.” See full article
