Inovonics has been selected for audio processing with the installation of FM 90 Radio Unity, a new Community Radio Station (CRS) in the tribal Narmada district of India. The station launch is part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi´s long term vision for India to promote the empowerment of tribal youth. System Integrator and Inovonics´ partner – BECIL (Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Ltd) chose the 719N DAVID IV FM Broadcast Processor to integrate with the installation because of its audio processing capabilities and unique feature set.
“It is very gratifying to play a part in the launch of FM 90 Radio Unity with our audio processing technology.” said Ben Barber, President & CEO of Inovonics, Inc. “Through our Regional Sales Manager, Mukesh Chaudhary, we have worked hard to promote the Inovonics brand and gain the confidence of our partner BECIL for integrating Inovonics broadcast products in their installations.”
The community radio station was launched on the occasion of India´s 75th Independence Day. Radio Unity is located in the western Indian state of Gujarat (Kevadiya Colony) near the statue of Sardar Patel – an important statesman who is credited with unifying the country into the Indian Union we know today. The Statue of Unity is the tallest in the world at 182 meters (582 ft), almost twice the height of the Statue of Liberty at 93 meters (298 ft).
BECIL (Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Ltd) provides project consultancy services, system integration, and turnkey solutions encompassing the entire gamut of radio and television broadcast.
According to Mr. Khuswinder Singh Bhatia, Asst. General Manager at Becil, “The launch of FM 90 Radio Unity is a great example of a successful installation for Community Radio Stations. We have designed an excellent and affordable solution that can be integrated with other community radio stations across India.”
