January 13, 2009
Al-Arabiya's 24-hour news channel has installed a Solid State Logic C200 HD digital production console. Al-Arabiya, the 24-hour news channel of MBC Network, Dubai, reaches more than 150 million Arabic speakers around the world, and is currently upgrading its news servers to substantially increase its overall number of digital input channels. The new console will be located in Al-Arabiya's news gallery sound room.
According to Basheer Saad, News Channel Audio Supervisor, MBC Group, "We selected the C200 HD for its high performance and unique control surface features. It's an all-digital console with all the advantages that offers, but its analogue-style layout provides near-instant access to multiple controls, which is very important in our work environment as it will be in use 24 hours-a-day for live news, current affairs, business and financial markets, sports, talk shows, and documentaries."
