Broadcasting the Hits in the Himalayas

Nepal’s HITS FM has updated with a new studio centered around a Lawo console.

Nepal (July 18, 2018)—People everywhere love hit radio, whether they’re on an ocean beach, or up in the Himalayas. For those in the latter area, many tune into HITS FM 91.2 to get their fill of the latest tunes, and they’re hearing that mix via a newly installed Lawo crystal radio broadcast console, marking the first placement of a Lawo system in Nepal.

The updated studio was unveiled in a recent inauguration ceremony overseen by HITS FM’s independent Technical Consultant, Ram Saran Karki.

The decision process included discussions via phone between the station’s technical and management team, and Lawo Sales Director for Southeast Asia, Tan Boon Siong, who answered the team’s questions with information about the crystal console, its technical integration and workflow options. Also of concern was the support Lawo could provide.

After a few months of debate, Lawo was awarded the order and delivered a 12-fader split version crystal with countersunk kit and analog extension IO. The desk offers RAVENNA/AES67 compatibility and VisTool touchscreen-optimized PC software for extended visualization and control of crystal installations.

The radio broadcast mixing system was delivered with pre-configured settings. After two phone calls between HITS FM’s independent Technical Consultant and Tan to understand the basic setup, the team was able to modify and fine-tune the system.
