FOR-A provides flyaway production kit for MAP

FOR-A has delivered a complete flyaway production kit to Media and Art Production (MAP), based in Fujairah, UAE. The kit was designed to provide the technology platform for Emirates Draw, one of the most watched television programmes in the UAE. It is a live draw and entertainment programme, broadcast each Sunday, but now from a different location each week, thanks to its FOR-A system.

Although MAP was already familiar with FOR-A’s range of production switchers, it become clear that the company could provide a large part of the technology platform in readily integrated equipment. The complete solution included the HVS-490 production switcher, MFR-3000 routing switcher with multiviewer, Insight servers and Envivo replay management, ClassX graphics platforms, and multichannel signal processor.

The system is built on SDI (with quad SDI for 4k when required) which allows rapid configuration at each location, and the ability to use existing infrastructure when the program uses fixed facilities at Dubai Studio City.

“Our business is in delivering live events and television to the highest possible standards,” said Imad Bassil, owner and GM of MAP. “The new production system we developed built on FOR-A kit allows our team to focus on creating exciting, engaging television, knowing that the underlying technology will deliver what we expect, every time, whatever configuration we need for that particular show.”

Mohammed Abu Ziyadeh of FOR-A’s Dubai centre added: “This was a great showpiece project for us. We demonstrated that FOR-A could deliver all the quality, reliability, and ease of use they demanded, that we could provide technical and operational support to MAP’s in-house engineering team, and we could complete the project to their tight timescales.”
