Hong Kong broadcaster TVB (Television Broadcasts Limited) has upgraded its production studios with Calrec Artemis digital audio consoles. The three new Artemis consoles will replace legacy Calrec Alpha consoles that have been operating at TVB for almost a decade.

Sales, system installation, and testing of the three new consoles was handled by Jolly Pro Audio, Calrec's regional distributor in Hong Kong.

Powerhouse Hong Kong broadcaster TVB has upgraded its facility with a trio of Artemis digital audio consoles, each one supporting a different production studio. The three new Artemis consoles replace legacy Calrec Alpha desks that have been in service at TVB for close to a decade.

"Calrec is a vital and trusted partner in our operation. Therefore, when it came time to modernise our facility, we had no hesitation in choosing Artemis," said Mr. Law, studio production department, assistant manager at TVB. "The Alphas have served us long and well, and we've had nothing but outstanding support from the Calrec team."

"TVB is a leader in the Hong Kong TV market, offering some of the world's most popular programming to the overseas Chinese communities as well as a broad audience in mainland China," said Anthony Harrison, international sales manager, Calrec Audio. "With the new Artemis installations, TVB has renewed its long-standing relationship with Calrec — the latest example in our growing momentum among Hong Kong broadcasters."
