Calrec Apollo: Digital Audio Console with 590 OLED Displays


I’m not an audio guy but Calrec’s Apollo is a digital audio console looks quite professional with all those knobs! The Apollo has all the top-of-the-line technologies (I’m guessing but pretty sure) such as 48kHz 1020-ch processing paths, 128 program busses, 96 IFB/Track outputs, 48 auxiliaries or 96kHz 510-ch processing paths, 64 program busses, 96 KFB/Track outputs and 24 auxiliaries. Sounds like the Apollo is technically quite capable. But there is another technology that ony the Apollo has. No other digital audio console has it as far as I know.


You see those tiny displays on top of the knobs? Those are 1.1″ displays. And they are OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) displays. OLED is the next generation in display technology and are ultra-thin, provides superb color and in dark rooms where the Apollo will be in has unsurpassed contrast! The other cool fact about the Apollo is that it makes use of 590 OLED displays! There are 72 OLED displays for each fader section. And there are 8 fader sections. Add 14 additional on the main control panel and the grand total is 590. Wow!
