Calrec's ImPulse1 - the powerful, flexible, feature-packed and future-proofed audio processing and routing engine in a compact 1U solution!

Calrec's ImPulse1 - the powerful, flexible, feature-packed and future-proofed audio processing and routing engine in a compact 1U solution!

The ImPulse1 IP engine is a smaller, yet powerful cost-effective ST2110 version of the industry-established ImPulse.

ImPulse1 comes with AES67 and SMPTE 2110 connectivity, an optional second core for redundancy and a new 128-input channel DSP pack offering entry-level pricing.

It runs a single mixer and is compatible with Argo Q, Argo S control surfaces and/or Calrec Assist, a browser-based GUI, ideally suited to remote working, multi-operator or headless operation.

Flexible, feature-packed and future-proofed ST2110 scalable solution made affordable

The ImPulse1 IP engine is a smaller, yet powerful cost-effective version of the industry-established ImPulse.

ImPulse1 features include a 1U enclosure as well as dual AC PSUs. Two cores for failover redundancy or optional non-redundant single core are available. It runs a single mixer with SMPTE ST2110/AES67 connectivity and can be controlled by Argo surfaces, and/or Calrec Assist, a browser-based GUI, ideally suited to remote working or headless operation.

ImPulse1 is designed for smaller, single mixer applications and is offered with an all-new DSP license of 128 input channels without compromising its ST2110 capability. With a small overall form factor of 2 x 1U unit, it’s immediately attractive for compact installation sites, such as outside broadcast and flypack applications, where space is at a premium. Furthermore, it doesn’t compromise on features and DSP power with DSP options ranging from 128 to 384 input channels and benefits from the DSP features from the larger, ImPulse core.


Benefits
ImPulse1 is a flexible, feature-packed & future-proofed ST2110 scalable solution which is now more affordable. Here are four benefits of switching to IP with ImPulse1:

  • Calrec has made switching to ST2110 infrastructure more affordable
  • Switching to a ST2110 infrastructure is a large investment but with Calrec’s powerful ImPulse1 solution, migrating to ST2110 Infrastructure has never been more affordable. Calrec has made IP more affordable without compromising on features, whilst still delivering high-quality audio products that are synonymous with Calrec. ImPulse1 IP engine is a smaller, yet powerful more cost-effective ST2110 version of the industry-established ImPulse with unparalleled processing which can be tailored to suit all broadcaster’s requirements from small to medium applications.
  • ImPulse1 has a wide range of options to suit all budget requirements
  • Calrec understands that spend on broadcast infrastructure is being watched and weighted, so we have launched a cost-effective and compact 1U solution with an optional second core for redundancy. We recognise that broadcasters need to reduce operating budgets whilst still demonstrating ROI, so we have introduced a range of DSP options, including a new 128-channel DSP pack offering entry-level pricing.
  • Join other broadcasters who have adopted IP and reap the benefits
  • Calrec launched the industry-established ImPulse 4 years ago. Since then, we have seen a massive adoption of IP by many of world’s leading broadcasters as they reap the benefits of IP with efficient and scalable workflows.
  • Low carbon footprint breaking geographical barriers between processing and control
  • ImPulse1 has a low power consumption and can be located anywhere. The compact, lighter ImPulse1 processing core is not tied to the control surface and can be connected via the internet, reducing OB travel costs and the size of the OB trucks. ImPulse1’s remote capabilities mean operators and engineering staff are having to travel less, all of which, make an important contribution to reduce both operating costs and ensure broadcasters can improve their carbon footprint.

Features
ImPulse1 supports control from Argo Q and Argo S control surfaces via IP, so surfaces can be physically remote, connected over COTS networks and supplemented with Assist web UI for multi-operator, remote or headless use.

  • Up to 672 processing paths
  • 1U Fully self-contained DSP core
  • Native AES67 / SMPTE ST2110-30 connectivity
  • ST2110-30 connections can operate in 1 or 10Gbps mode
  • ST2022-7 redundant connections
  • Built-in support for NMOS IS-04 advertisements & IS-05 connection managements
  • Max router capacity of 2,048 x 2,048
  • Up to 512 ST2110 streams – each stream can pass between 1 to 80 audio channels
  • High bandwidth utilisation
  • Dual AC PSUs
  • Dual core for failover redundancy that can be physically remote or optional non-redundant single core available
