Presteigne Broadcast Hire has added Calrec’s Artemis Shine audio desk to its equipment roster.

The company has selected a 40-fader Artemis console with a frame supporting 680 channels in 8U of rack space.

The mixer provides 128 main and group buses, 32 auxiliary buses and 64 track buses, suitable for large event live mixing and simultaneous multitrack recording.

Accompanying the desk is a Calrec Hydra2 audio router with two remote stage boxes, two local I/O boxes and six Madi interfaces.

“We have a great reputation in audio, and adding a console was a natural move,” said Presteigne chief executive Mike Ransome.

“It is a powerful console in a compact frame, and has a user interface which our customers are already familiar with.”
