New Crest Audio CV 20 Mixing Console Provides Full VCA Control With Flexible Features & Frame Sizes

At InfoComm 2009 in Orlando, Crest Audio announced that it is now shipping the CV 20 mixing console, a flexible VCA audio solution designed for applications such as front-of-house, monitors and monitors from front-of-house.

The CV 20 is available in 32, 40, 48, 56 and 64 mono input configurations with four-band sweepable EQ and fully parametric mid-frequency control on each mono input.

A feature set of 12 aux sends, eight subgroup assignments and L/C/R panning to the Left/Right and Mono buses provide a wealth of audio routing options.

Standard on all CV 20 frames are eight stereo input channels consisting of four microphone-line channels and four dual-line channels with the same full assignment capabilities as the mono input channels, plus eight VCA masters, 12 aux masters, eight subgroups and separate left/right/mono controls that can be “fader reversed” to allow fader control of the aux masters.

CV 20 mixing consoles also feature 128 VCA assignment and 144 mute scenes with MIDI control, 16 mute groups, an 11×4 matrix that is expandable to 19×4, full dynamics on all subgroups and main buses (also routable to the aux masters) and full metering on all main and auxiliary outputs.

Available options include meter-bridge kits to monitor all outputs in VU and a bus link module kit for linking together two CV 20 consoles. The CV 20 can use its internal power supply as well as an optional, redundant external power-factor-corrected power supply.
