Dala FM moves to full IP with R3LAY


Dala FM, an independent radio station based in Kano, Nigeria, has adopted a Lawo R3LAY “radio in a box” solution as part of its transition from an analogue workflow to a fully IP infrastructure. The station seeks to promote national unity by giving a voice to the voiceless, while always looking to raise the standards of broadcast journalism in the areas it covers.

With the new Lawo solution already integrated, the broadcaster’s 16 audio channels, derived from a range of analogue, digital and IP sources, are connected to a media-grade PC running the R3LAY bundle.

“This bold decision turns Dala FM into Nigeria’s first virtual radio station. The entire Dala FM team immediately realised the potential of Lawo’s R3LAY VRX radio solution for its operations,” commented Opeyemi Ogunsaju from Lawo’s distributor in Nigeria, Mega Cyber Plus. “Dala FM’s setup furthermore includes seamless and flexible live reporter contribution for newsgathering and on-location programming.”

Abbas M Dalhatu, Mega Cyber Plus managing director and executive director in charge of business development, is adamant that the broadcaster’s new virtual studio setup is in line with the station’s ambitions and mission. “Today’s radio stations benefit from a PC-based, virtual IP approach in terms of flexibility, deployment and maintenance. Lawo’s R3LAY bundle is not only affordably priced, it also ticks all the right boxes in terms of intuitive operation, stability and reliability.”
