Sharjah TV turns HD

Dubai based media systems integrator, Media Group International (MGI), has completed a major infrastructure project for state-owned broadcaster, Sharjah TV, by upgrading the broadcaster’s Avid storage system and redesigning its network infrastructure to enhance day-to-day operations.

With the upgrade, the broadcaster will offer HD coverage of a wide range of cultural events in the next few months. At the centre of Sharjah TV’s HD switch was the Avid upgrade, which was needed to provide additional storage for current production work and to ensure that Sharjah TV was ready for the new format.

“There is no doubt that the transition to high-definition TV broadcast is an important step for Sharjah TV in providing modern and cutting edge coverage,” said Khalid Al Midfa, Director General of Sharjah Media Corporation. “The move sheds light on our unlimited support that will lead to advancements in the media sector and highlights our leadership in this field.”
