Case study – Kenya Broadcast Corporation
Phased Upgrade of National Radio Broadcast Headquarters
The state broadcaster, KBC, is Kenya’s largest and most established radio organisation serving the country with thirteen radio services originating from the broadcast HQ in Nairobi.
Working with a team from KBC, Clyde developed a program for a phased replacement of outdated technical facilities. The pilot phase started with the national ‘Radio Taifa’ services that was brought up to date with a network based ‘Clyde Synergy’ system. Clyde and KBC engineers worked to update the work-flows while trainers assisted with a change program covering production, traffic and management.
With the technology well established the roll-out of Synergy-equipped studios throughout the rest of broadcast KBC HQ took place, including the installation of a fibre-backbone and audio over IP infrastructure.
KBC Managing Director Waithaka Waihenya : ‘The experience working with Clyde has been very satisfactory. Their team has been extremely professional, meeting their targets while providing high quality service and advice.’
