Summa is designed for live broadcast applications with a focus on instinctive operation.

Its design keeps the user interface simple and straightforward. Calrec has focused on ensuring that Summa’s highly intuitive GUI would be suitable for a broad range of operator levels. Users control the console via a 17-inch multitouch screen inspired by familiar tablet technology, with a straightforward interface that uses established finger gestures to navigate the system. The crisp, high-resolution display provides elegant controls and clear presentation of information.

Designed for live broadcast applications and with a focus on intuitive operation, Summa simplifies even complex workflow tasks, such as creating mix-minus feeds, with common procedures that are just one tap away.

Summa’s other large displays are fully configurable to display bus, output,and loudness meters, and feature dedicated
metering, routing, and processing information per fader.

The physical control surface is available in fixed 12+8, 24+8 and 36+8 fader configurations with a new streamlined layout. Each channel strip has only the most essential mechanical controls, featuring a fader, two flexible control cells, and a dedicated gain pot.

Summa uses Calrec’s award-winning Bluefin2 technology at its core, and the same integral Hydra2 router technology as the Apollo and Artemis consoles. Bluefin2 and Hydra2 technologies are in use 24 hours a day.

Bluefin2 provides Summa with a pool of up to 180 channel processing paths, which can be assigned as mono, stereo, or 5.1 channels. As with all Calrec consoles, there is no resource-sharing across the DSP. All facilities are available on all channels at all times. Summa has eight groups, four mains (all of which can be mono, stereo, or 5.1), 16 auxes, and 32 tracks.

The broadcast-focused feature set also includes complete system redundancy, dedicated delay on all paths with additional assignable input and output delay, PFL overpress on all faders, and three 5.1 studio monitor outputs.

Summa’s refined mechanical design and a lean construction that keeps components and materials to a minimum. Disciplined power distribution means the console is one of the most energy efficient consoles available.
