Dubai Media chooses Arkena’s Cloud4Media

dubai mediaDubai Media has chosen French media services provider Arkena France to provide technology to support its drive towards a fully automated tapeless content acquisition workflow.

Arkena will supply its Cloud4Media solution, which will be integrated into Dubai Media’s existing workflow, ensuring content will be available for cross-department usage and editing before airing, according to Arkena.

“Arkena is delighted to work alongside DMI in its digital move. It is a major challenge for a MENA broadcaster to automate its content logistics. We intend to create a DMI ecosystem that connects all the partners involved in the content processing, such as Tier 1 Studios, post-production labs and broadcasters. Recent announcements on piracy issues have confirmed that Arkena is the best choice for a secure and fast content-delivery solution” said Samir Zehani, MENA markets manager at Arkena.

Saleh Lootah, head of TV and radio engineering at DMI says “Moving forward with Arkena is a great step accomplished by DMI to improve our content exchange with our partners. Having such a network connected on the Arkena platform makes the decision easier for us. Choosing Arkena as a trusted partner was evident as a result of a long-standing support and a very good understanding of our needs.
