The country’s FM spectrum is congested, and attempts to free up some of the spectrum for new players is proving difficult
AYP FM — the Paris-based radio station catering for France’s Armenian community — has a new look, complete with new logo, studios, furniture, programs and broadcast equipment from Broadcast-associés. Plus, all this is now viewable to the station’s listeners.
The media architects from Broadcast-associés designed and ensured the studio layouts, painting, furniture, lights, architecture and audio and video technical integration.
AYP FM now produces its audiovisual content with 100% digital tools. These include new IP consoles and touch screens, processing, virtualized telephone inserts, network connections and a modulation center.
Using the new video facilities, AYP FM volunteers produce live video for viewing via the internet and on social media: “We have brought AYP FM radio into the era of visual radio,” says Fabrice Gauthier, CEO of Broadcast-associés.
AYP FM plans to become a center for audiovisual productions at the service of both French and Armenian citizens, in addition to being “the voice of Armenia in France.” Its management team says it is aware of this important responsibility in the French media landscape.
