First ON AIR 24 in Kuwait
The State of Kuwait in the gulf is no newcomer to STAGETEC technology. In late 2004 the first large NEXUS network in the Middle East went on-air in the Radio Kuwait main control room. This year, Radio Kuwait is modernising its Superstation FM and Classic FM studios, which will each be equipped with an AURATUS console. In this context, two additional NEXUS Base Devices are being integrated into the existing audio network, expanding it to a total of one STAR and 20 Base Devices.
At Al Watan Radio, an important private radio station which is also located in Kuwait City, another installation has already been completed. At present, Al Watan Radio broadcasts exclusively though the internet but is expected to receive an FM license this year. Al Watan has already put the appropriate production and transmission technology into operation, with an ON AIR 24 together with a NEXUS system as the basis for smooth on-air operations.
At Al Watan, DJ self-op operation is the norm. The small mixer with just four faders but large possibilities fits the bill perfectly. Thanks to intelligent integration, the ON AIR 24 can also be controlled by the DALET production and play-out system. STAGETEC distributor ROMCO Trading Co., which has represented STAGETECs products in Kuwait and the Middle East since 2003, was responsible for planning and constructing the complete studio and also for the on-site training.
