AAP Media Network installs six Calrec Brio consoles

Posted on: Thursday 1st of August 2019

Lahore-based AAP Media Network has purchased six Brio36 consoles for live, on-air mixing for 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 compact and powerful Brios set to be used across that.

Suhail Ahmed, Group COO at AAP Media Network, explained, “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. 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.”

Jawad Ali, General Manager, Broadcast & IT at AAP Media Network added, “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. Our engineers are all Dante certified, allowing us to be the first channel in Pakistan to benefit from audio-over-IP using Dante.”

Tanvir Hussain, Head of PCR Operations at AAP Media Network, added, “The mic preamps are amazing and our audio quality has improved drastically. 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 Brios are located 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. Programmes 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.

“This is a significant customer win for us in Pakistan. 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,” said Anthony Harrison, International Sales Manager, Calrec.
