Hi-tech and high quality: Qatar’s broadcasters resolutely choose Barco 

Innovation, high tech and reliability, 24/7: that is clearly what Qatar’s broadcasters want for the video walls in their television studios. So they all go Barco. Over the past few years, Barco partner Salam Technology has been setting up state-of-the-art video walls for JSC (International + Sport + 2 studios), Jazeera Arabic, Qatar TV (2 studios), All Rayyan and Al Kass (2 channels).

Catch the eye of the viewer
“All the stations are top regional and international channels that want state-of-the-art studios, to catch the eye of their viewers,” says Hythem Al-Kabbany, General Manager, Salam Technology. “As a true Barco partner, with an installed base of over 60 Barco video walls in Qatar, we can’t think of a better solution for them than Barco video walls. Barco scores best on all criteria – from the high quality of the screens, the brightness, the color saturation, the uniformity through to the reliability and the maintenance.” The long-term commitment of Salam and Barco to provide support and services throughout the wall’s life-time, is definitely a distinct plus.

Life-long support
“Years after the installation, we still provide support services, such as technical assistance, maintenance or even expert advice. Quite recently, several existing customers like JSC International decided on an upgrade. So we replaced the lamp-lit cubes in the 48m² curved rear-projection wall by Barco’s LED-lit OVL cubes, which help save energy, have a longer wear life, are easier to maintain, etc.,” Hythem Al-Kabbany continues. The same OVL cubes installed at JCS International’s studio are also used in the studios of Al-Kass Channel (9x3 and 6x3 70” cubes). In addition, we found impressive Barco video walls at the JSC (Sport) studios (3), Jazeera Arabic, Qatar TV (2) and Al-Rayyan – all set up to serve as an eye-catching backdrop for the news-, sports- or other TV shows.
