EVS Extends Operations in the Middle East with Dubai Office
EVS Broadcast Equipment
is further strengthening its operations in the Middle East with the opening of a Dubai office. Located in the Studio City, part of the state-of-the-art Dubai Media City, EVS Middle East will have a fully equipped demo and training centre showcasing a complete integration of EVS recording, editing and playout systems.
EVS has a strong presence in the Middle East and its technologies are well-suited to the region's frequent multi-camera live and near-live productions which include a vast array of televised live sport events, mega concerts and religious festivals. Headed by Bruno Schmetz, Middle East Sales Manager, from EVS headquarters in Liège, the office will be supported by technical engineers and support staff employed locally.
Henry Alexander, EVS General Manager Europe, Middle East and Africa comments: "The Middle East is experiencing a rapid rise in the number of news and TV series being produced. Our leading sport broadcast products and new studio production solution, the [IP]Director, perfectly meet broadcaster requirements for integrated production solutions, while offering maximum integration with existing infrastructures."
Bruno Schmetz ads: "Producers and production crews are welcome to visit us in the Studio City for a demonstration and to try out our tapeless systems for themselves."
