Kurwait (November 12, 2015)—Kuwait's official state-run television station, Kuwait Television (KTV), is installing a Calrec Summa audio console in its newest and most advanced OB van.
The Summa will give KTV, which is part of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Information, the flexibility to cover a wider variety of programming and will be assigned to the broadcaster's most significant events.
"We're always working on expanding capacity and raising our standards of television production and delivery," said Waleed Hamadah, TV broadcast engineer, TV Engineering Division, Ministry of Information. "This new OB van is the embodiment of that effort, and the Summa console is a perfect fit for our ambitious goals.
"We have six other OB vans, and though the audio consoles in those units are more than adequate, the Summa console enables us to take our audio coverage to new heights. What's more, Summa's advanced audio capabilities mean less reliance on third-party companies and on other departments when covering the more complex audio events."
KTV's newest OB van will be deployed to cover all types of live programs, such as sport events and tournaments, live concerts, and talk shows.
