ABS Network has teamed up with SIS Live for satellite capacity to support its sports broadcast productions in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).

SIS LIVE logo 7 September 2017“The sport events industry is thriving in the Middle East and countries in the region are now among the premier venues for major global championships. The prestige and calibre of these world-class events warrants coverage that is of equally high quality. ABS excels in the area of live event coverage and in recent years, we have focused on growing our capabilities in sports broadcasting,” said ABS president Mohammed Al Ajlouni.

“SIS Live is the ideal partner for our organisation. We share common areas of expertise and our collaboration has enabled millions of viewers to enjoy quality coverage of premier sporting events.”

ABS has previously worked with SIS LIVE on the coverage of sports events over the past two years in Dubai, Oman, Doha and Istanbul. These included the 2015/16 editions of National Bank of Oman Golf Championship and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, as well as 2016/17 editions of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

“Through our network of 18 fully staffed operational hubs across the Middle East and North Africa, we hope to build on this success by extending coverage into even more territories,” said Al Ajlouni.

ABS uses SNG trucks and fully redundant HD systems to cover regional sporting events.
