JAA Systems brings KK12FM to the airwaves

KK12FM recently started broadcasting in Kota Kinabalu. The local radio station called upon JAA Systems to design and integrate the solutions for its master control room (MCR), production and on-air studios. The systems integrator delivered a Klotz Graphite One 12-fader mixer, an RCS radio automation solution, an Orban Optimod 5500 processor and a variety of additional equipment. The project was completed in two weeks and it was this short timeframe allocated, as well as logistical issues owing to the radio stations location that presented the biggest challenges.

‘As Kota Kinabalu is a two and a half hour flight from Kuala Lumpur, we had to plan in advance which cables, connectors and equipment needed to be shipped in for the installations,’ explained Azhar Abdul Latiff, head of technical at JAA.S. ‘Of course, many unexpected issues still cropped up. So, it was a challenge to ensure that all the goods arrived on time so that the installation team could complete the work before deadline.’

JAA.S completed the work, drawing upon its previous experience in outfitting radio stations. ‘We have been building radio stations and studios for several years,’ said JAA.S director David Chan. ‘We always enjoy our role in building and integrating radio studios.’

The end result was a happy client: ‘Formulating a radio station for KK was indeed a challenge in an already saturated marketplace where many media platforms are battling for “ears and eyeballs”,’ said Terence Dorairaj, business development consultant at the radio station. ‘However, I believe we have come up with a unique proposition for KK – one that stands out from the rest both in format and positioning. We are glad that JAA.S was part of the team that built the KK12 FM studios and happy with their professional team and that the project was realised in such a short period of time.’
