KBS adds Calrec

Published: MEA

KUWAIT: As part of a recent update to its radio studios, Kuwait Broadcast Services (KBS) has installed two Calrec digital audio consoles in its Kuwait City facility. Italian integrator Aret Video and Audio Engineering and Kuwait Cable Vision were chosen to provide the consoles, workflow customisation, training, and support after a government-issued public tender process.

Studio 8, which is dedicated to sports programming, and studio 11, which broadcasts classical music programming, each received a new Calrec Omega console. The Omega consoles satisfied KBS' requirement for a flexible, turnkey audio solution that could be customised to fit its specific workflow, with dedicated aftermarket support and training. Each of KBS' Omega consoles contains 24 faders in a 40-fader frame to allow for future expansion.

‘We recommended Calrec to replace KBS' incumbent products because Calrec represents state-of-the-art audio technology. The DSP, the reliability, the flexibility, and the built-in redundancy meant that the Omega consoles could not only meet but far exceed KBS' performance criteria put forth in the public tender – and at a competitive price,’ said Umberto Asti, vice president of sales and marketing at Aret Video and Audio Engineering. ‘All Calrec consoles are designed to be similarly straightforward and intuitive, so you can do everything in a snap without having to navigate multiple menus like you would with other consoles. I've received nothing but positive feedback from the KBS operators since they started using the new consoles.’

‘KBS is a flagship customer for us in Kuwait that is taking advantage of our consoles' reliability, performance, and ease of use to advance itself in a budding broadcast market,’ said Anthony Harrison, Middle East sales manager for Calrec. ‘Aret, which shares our philosophy of strong customer support, was instrumental in making this sale happen and continues to be an important partner for us in the region.’
