Sharjah Media Corp boosts storage capacity
Sharjah, July 26, 2014
The Sharjah Media Corporation (SMC) has increased the storage capacity of its TV channels 16-fold, as part of its continued development plans.
The move comes in the light of the growth of SMC’s activities and its adoption of new phases for the development of work mechanisms in its various sections, it said.
The new storage capacity is equivalent to approximately 6000 hours of its HD transmission capacity and about 12,000 hours of its SD transmission capacity.
The new move will enable the corporation to add other news agencies, so as to support the delivery of quality broadcast services and enhance the work of the News Centre and provide it with the ability to connect with various events happening in the world. The project was completed within one and a half months, well ahead of its projected four-month schedule.
Dr Khaled Omar Al Medfa, SMC director general, said: "The corporation will continue to develop every area of its services and support its broadcast network with advanced technology and high skills in keeping with the latest technology available in the regional and global media. There is no doubt that this expansion of storage capacity will support the performance of a range of sections and constitute an important addition that will boost the corporation's strategy to expand and increase the number of its current channels, in its quest to open new channels in the coming period." - TradeArabia News Service
