Kayu FM Deploys Virtual Lawo Mixer

New station went on the air in May in Nairobi

From the Who’s Buying What page: Kayu FM in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is using Lawo Relay virtual radio software.

“Kayu covers numerous important local and regional topics, airing its programs in Kikuyu, one of the Bantu languages spoken by the Gikuyu people, who form the ethnic majority in Kenya,” Lawo said in a release.

“Taking advantage of the refitting of a former hotel building, Kayu FM combined and renovated several rooms, converting them into full-fledged radio studios powered by Lawo Relay software. The Kenyan system integrator BYCE Broadcast was responsible for the implementation of the project.”

Program Manager Grace Murungi and CEO Rose Kimotho.

The virtual radio suite provides a broadcast mixer in software. Live audio mixing, processing and source routing can be performed on a touchscreen connected to an off-the-shelf PC or, for remote and on-location shows, a laptop computer.

“Relay allows Kayu FM to mix 24 audio sources, as well as AES67-compliant AoIP signal streams, directly on the station’s PC for pristine audio production and output,” Lawo said.

Kayu FM went on the air in May.
