KENYA: Kubamba Radio’s K-Krew relied upon Lawo’s R3lay virtual radio mixer to broadcast coverage of its 12th annual Totally Sold Out concert. This allowed the radio station, working in collaboration with BYCE Broadcast, to remotely broadcast the event without the need to transport mics and headsets and a mixer to the site or an OB van.

More than 10,000 attended the concert in Nairobi’s Kenyatta International Convention Centre, while Kubamba Radio and BYCE assembled a remote kit using R3lay VRX8 virtual radio mixer software. Benson Nyagah, CEO of BYCE, operated the virtual setup during the concert, which provided 17 hours of radio programming. The R3lay mixer was fed by a combination of stage mics and inputs, a DJ feed and playout software installed on a laptop that allowed music to be played out through the PA system serving the live crowd during breaks. The final programme output was fed to the radio station via G4 codecs for on-air transmission.

‘I can see definite opportunities to use R3lay again for future broadcasts – perhaps even in the main studio,’ said Mr Nyagah. ‘K-Krew are doing live shows every weekend, but at this important show using the R3lay kit provided the best quality we’ve ever had.’
