Lawo Has Fingers on the Pulse of UAE Radio Station


Opened with a star-studded event at the Al Majaz Amphitheatre, Sharjah’s Pulse 95 Radio is the Emirate’s first English-language station. Pulse 95 broadcasts across the UAE on 95.0 FM, and also through the Sharjah Media Corporation’s (SMC) web and mobile app – makes extensive use of mixing, routing and control from German broadcast innovator, Lawo. SMC has equipped the station with a pair of Lawo systems comprising ruby control surfaces with accompanying Power Core mixing engines and VisTool user interfaces. The installation is an extension of an existing NOVA17 Mk.II router already operated by SMC. Supporting from four to 60 faders and being fully AES67-compliant, ruby consoles offer AutoMix smart mixing and a context-sensitive GUI through VisTool. While the physical mixing surface carries faders, source selectors, monitor controls, less frequently accessed features such as routing selections are available via context-sensitive multi touch displays. The Power Core engine supports hundreds of AES67 and MADI I/O channels, and can be expanded with plug-in cards to accommodate further digital and analog sources. It natively offers 96 DSP channels, multiple AutoMix groups, and a 1920 x 1920 internal routing matrix. Pulse 95 Radio presents itself as a feelgood station that showcases Sharjah’s rich cultural heritage – without limiting itself to an exclusively English-speaking audience. Although Pulse 95 is the first English station in Sharjah, it is not aiming purely at listeners who are native English speakers. Pulse 95 is an option for people who understand English and still enjoy the format and content of the shows even though it may not be their first language. The station’s goal is to be “a totally inclusive, fun, trusted, feelgood station, bringing the listeners positive, upbeat stories of real people.”
