Digital Broadcast Power List-Mohammed Al Shahi
du Broadcast Services has played an integral role in a number of initiatives in Dubai, acting as an enabler for the emirate’s broadcast industry.
The organisation has played a key role in the development of the Gulf’s first DVB-H offering from the development and execution of the original pilot study to the impending deployment of the network.
The headend for the UAE’s DVB-H services – which will be offered by both the country’s operators – will be based at du Broadcast Services’ Samacom teleport facility, which was recently named one of the world’s highest-grossing independent teleports by industry body, the World Teleport Association (WTA).
Al Shahi has also overseen the implementation of Samacom’s upgrade to HD, which pre-empted the development of HD services by several of its clients, ensuring the necessary infrastructure in place in good time.
