Al Dawri & Al Kass (known as Al-Kass), a sports channel based in Doha, Qatar, uses multiple Autoscript prompting units and newsroom software for its studio complex. One of the key sports broadcasters in the Middle East region, Al-Kass broadcasts 24 hours a day, presenting mainly Gulf-based sports events from three 600m studios; each studio is equipped with three Autoscript LED 17″ On Camera Units with WinPlus newsroom software and various accessories including Magno Foot Controls. The sale was completed by German distributor, Gruppe 3, and installed by systems integrator BFE.
Juergen Loos, BFE, said, “Al-Kass’s main requirements for its prompting solutions in the new studios were reliability and functionality. They had previously used Autoscript prompters and were pleased to choose them again for their robustness and reliability for day-to-day studio operations.”
Robin Brown, Product Manager, Autoscript, said, “Al-Kass’s demanding production schedule in the fast-moving sports broadcasting arena requires that they have equipment they can depend on 24/7. Our solutions provide that peace of mind to leading broadcasters around the world.”
