Lucas Oil Production Studios Selects Calrec to Power Live Motor Sports Broadcasts
Calrec Audio’s Brio console will deliver the horsepower to Lucas Oil Products’ lineup of live motor sports broadcasts. Lucas Oil Production Studios, the television-production arm of Lucas Oil, has chosen the new Brio for a quality audio upgrade of its 35-foot mobile production unit.
Lucas Oil Production Studios maintains its own HD production facility and produces more than 400 hours of television annually for CBS, CBSSN, NBC, NBCSN, the Lucas Oil-owned MAVTV Motorsports Network, and LucasOilRacing TV, a 24/7, on-demand worldwide motor sports app.
“When evaluating audio mixing consoles for our truck upgrade, we had specific requirements,” says Justin Conenna, audio engineer, Lucas Oil Production Studios. “Since this is our smallest truck, things can get pretty cramped, so it was critical that the console have a compact footprint.”
“Our owner is committed to giving exposure to smaller, grass-roots racing events that appeal to a niche set of motor-sports fans, so of course we were also on a strict budget. Besides its compact size and attractive price point, the Brio is highly flexible, modular, and easy to configure and reconfigure, and it comes with Calrec’s outstanding reputation in the industry.
“I’ve used a lot of audio consoles in a lot of trucks, and I can tell you that there simply aren’t any competing products that can match Calrec’s ease of use, sound quality, and robust processing.”
Lucas Oil also owns/sponsors race teams, events, and series across a broad range of motor sports, including NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA, PPL, and USHRA events. Lucas Oil also owns and operates many high-profile racing series, including the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, Lucas Oil Drag Boat Series, Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League, Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, and Lucas Oil Modified Series.
