Vinten Radamec tech for new Sky News Arabia HQ20 October 2011
The newly-created HQ of Arabic language TV station Sky News Arabia is being supplied with a host of advanced robotic and manual studio products by Vitec Group brand Vinten Radamec.
The Abu Dhabi based channel will be based in a three-floor facility housing a multimedia newsroom, craft edit suites, live graphics production, and a news operations centre that will manage Sky News Arabia’s international network of thirteen bureaux. The channel’s main studio will be in a completely redesigned space within the complex.
The Vinten Radamec order was secured by TSL, which was appointed as systems integrator to deliver the technical fit-out of the studios, production and broadcasting functions.
Paul Holmes, technical sales manager for EMEA & Asia at Vinten Radamec, commented: “Fusion heads combined with our precision pedestals provide the exact performance that will enable Sky News Arabia to deliver consistently high-production values and establish a firm visual identity. Through ease of implementation and resilient, reliable performance, our camera systems deliver a real and rapid return on investment.”
