The new OB truck will be equipped with the Hyperconverged production platform to carry out international sports productions in the Gulf region and internationally.
UAE-based production company Media Mania has selected Ross Video’s Hyperconverged production platform for their new state-of-the-art 12G 4K UHD OB van.
After spending more than 12 months reviewing broadcast industry vendors and the various solutions they offer, Media Mania decided to invest in Ross Video’s latest Ultrix Acuity Hyperconverged production platform, a new production solution that combines the company’s flagship Acuity production switcher with the software-defined Ultrix routing/AV processing product. This solution will form the backbone of a new, third OB truck that will be used to create international sports productions throughout the Gulf region and beyond.
Commenting on the deal, Roland Daou, CEO of Media Mania, said: “After many months of assessing the broadcast industry, it was clear that Ross Video’s local team in the region and the innovative software-defined technology met our technical and operational requirements. We are delighted to put our third OB van on the road to start producing exciting and innovative productions all over the Middle East.”
Benoit Rousseil, Regional Sales Director – Southern Europe, Middle East & Africa of Ross Video added: “We are very grateful for the trust that Media Mania has shown in Ross, and we’re very pleased to be part of this innovative project. Our local team and our technology both played crucial roles in convincing Media Mania Ross is the right technology partner for them, and our continually expanding footprint in the UAE is a big part of that story. We are very excited to be working with such a prestigious client in the Middle East and can’t wait to see how they will innovate using our latest Hyperconverged production platform.”
