Grass Valley delivers production solutions for Saudi Arabian Ministry of Higher Education
Grass Valley has announced the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) in Saudi Arabia has selected an end-to-end workflow for its first, fully equipped outside broadcasting (OB) van. Complete with cameras, servers, switchers and broadcast infrastructure solutions, the new van will enable MOHE to deliver the highest quality coverage of live events from across the region. For equipment implementation, MOHE will be working with regional system integrator First Gulf Company (FGC).
“MOHE has absolute confidence in Grass Valley and its live production solutions,” says Naim Saidi, FGC CEO. “Being MOHE’s first OB van, it was vital that they got a complete and high quality live production facility, and Grass Valley and FGC provided them with just that. MOHE can rest assured that the OB van will deliver the quality content viewers demand.”
The investment in an OB van provides MOHE with a wide range of production tools to cover all educational events and conferences in the Kingdom.
Grass Valley provided MOHE with a number of flexible solutions, including six LDK 8000 Elite cameras, a Karrera Video Production Center switcher, a Concerto multiformat routing switcher, and two T2 intelligent digital disk recorders (iDDRs).
Said Bacho, senior vice-president EMEA at Grass Valley, comments: “We are excited to be working with MOHE in Saudi Arabia. There are tremendous opportunities for us in the region and we look forward to growing our business further.”
MOHE is the authority for post-secondary education in Saudi Arabia, and it aims to help people in the region fulfil their potential through its study programmes.
