Kenya, on Africa’s eastern coast, is home to some of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders, such as world renowned Masai Mara game reserve, the white sandy beaches of Diani, the glaciers of Mount Kenya, the sprawling expanse of the Mau Forest, and the ‘Big 5’ of the animal world.

Kenya also boasts a vibrant and dedicated musical scene and media landscape. The Radio Africa Group in Nairobi, which serves this scene with six radio outlets, a national newspaper, four TV stations and a digital television platform, recently chose Lawo RƎLAY Virtual Radio technology to modernize their extremely popular flagship radio station, KISS FM.

RƎLAY is a powerful mixing console that runs in a virtualized PC environment on a standard PC or laptop. The intuitive, multitouch-enabled screen interface makes RƎLAY easy to use, and includes advanced features such as voice processing and mix-minus, all controlled with a multi-touch-enabled interface. Pairing RƎLAY software with a third-party playout system and other third-party broadcast software, an entire broadcast studio can be hosted on a single computer.
