imgKuwait (June 17, 2014)—Kuwait Broadcast Services (KBS) has refurbished its radio studios, updating its technology with the installation of two Calrec digital audio consoles at its Kuwait City facility.

Studio 8, which is dedicated to sports programming, and studio 11, which broadcasts classical music programming, each got a new Calrec Omega console. Italian integrator ARET Video and Audio Engineering and Kuwait Cable Vision were chosen by the state-run broadcaster to provide the consoles, workflow customization, training, and support after a government-issued public tender process.

Each of KBS' Omega consoles contains 24 faders in a 40-fader frame to allow for future expansion. The consoles can process up to 160 channels each due to Calrec's Bluefin high-density digital signal processing technology.

"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," said Anthony Harrison, Middle East sales manager, Calrec.
