Dr. Khalid Al Midfa, Director General of Sharjah Media Corporation, said, “The launch of Sharqiya from Kalba TV marks another important milestone for SMC. The new channel, which will broadcast from Kalba, will focus on Sharjah’s eastern zone and will air specially-produced programmes that are in tune with the expectations of Arab viewers.”
Pebble Beach Systems has announced that multiple Dolphin integrated channel devices are to be deployed by Sharjah Media Corporation (SMC) for playout and disaster recovery at its new Sharqiya from Kalba TV installation.
Sharqiya from Kalba TV, the first channel to broadcast from this area of the Emirate, is a brand new installation, and will feature a Pebble Beach Systems Neptune automation system controlling a total of four Dolphin integrated channel devices. Two of the devices will provide main and backup systems for playout, whilst the remaining two act as disaster recovery for the main Sharjah facility.
