In a joint venture to produce sports programs for the growing ex-patriot market in the region, Ten Sports and ADD, a pay TV platform management company for the Middle East, have launched an English-language TV channel with the help of a Quartz QMC master control switcher.
Prime Sports covers major sporting events for English-speakers in the region, including the FIFA World Cup, English Premier League and UEFA Champions League football. The production of Prime Sports was contracted by ADD to Ten Sports who selected Quart, to provide a master control solution for packaging the new channel at its Dubai Media City production facility.
Prime Sport's single channel QMC is configured with four key layers and includes the internal logo store option. Each key layer is user-configurable and can be controlled independently under automation or manual control. The unit also offers bypass and emergency inputs and hot-swap boards.
