Lahore, Pakistan (July 31, 2019)—AAP Media Network in Lahore, Pakistan, has purchased six Calrec Brio36 consoles for live, on-air mixing for two of its news and infotainment channels, and will also use the consoles for a channel it plans to add later in the year.
Four of the Brios are in AAP Media Network’s main studio in Lahore. The fifth is housed in its studio in Karachi and the sixth in its Islamabad facility. AAP News, an Urdu-language channel, and Indus News, an English-language channel, both reach local and international audiences. Programs include Coffee Table, AAP Janab and AAP Kay Muqabil. AAP Media Network is a broadcast media house that broadcasts news and entertainment to millions in the region.
Suhail Ahmed, group COO at AAP Media Network, noted, “The Brios took our engineers only 30 minutes to configure and two days to learn; by day three, we were up and running. They offer easy access to preamps and our studio resources can be accessed remotely via Dante. All our engineers are Dante-certified, and Dante fulfils our networking needs at the moment. Though, as we grow, we plan to deploy Hydra2.”
“Calrec has given us a single system that covers and caters to all our needs and has allowed us to take away external third-party devices, reducing system complexity and deployment time,” adds Jawad Ali, general manager, broadcast & IT at AAP Media Network. “Our engineers are all Dante-certified, allowing us to be the first channel in Pakistan to benefit from audio-over-IP using Dante.”
