Lahore-based AAP Media Network has purchased six Calrec Audio Brio36 audio consoles for live on-air mixing on two of its news and infotainment channels – AAP News and Indus News. AAP is also planning an additional channel launch for later this year with the console also to be used here.

‘When we started working on these two new channels, I wanted to make sure that we were using consoles that would foster innovation and make mixing easy, and Calrec satisfies both those requirements,’ says AAP Media Network Group COO, Suhail Ahmed.

AAP Media Network‘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 of our engineers are Dante certified, and Dante is able to fulfil 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 fot all our needs, and has allowed us to take away external third-party devices, reducing system complexity and deployment time,’ adds AAP Media Network Broadcast & IT General Manager, Jawad Ali. ‘Our engineers are all Dante certified, allowing us to be the first channel in Pakistan to benefit from audio-over-IP using Dante.’

‘The mic preamps are amazing and our audio quality has improved drastically,’ says Head of PCR Operations, Tanvir Hussain. ‘We no longer use our external delay units because we have easy GPI triggers, which transition seamlessly to the built-in delay when we need it.’

Four of the consoles are located in AAP Media Network’s main studio in Lahore, while 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.

‘This is a significant customer win for us in Pakistan,’ says Calrec International Sales Manager, Anthony Harrison. ‘Our goal with this project was to get AAP Media Network up and running with the Brios quickly, and given the ease with which their engineers learnt the sophisticated features of the consoles themselves, this certainly proved to be the case.’
