Avid Deploys Cloud Enterprise at Al Jazeera
International news broadcaster, Al Jazeera Media Network, extends its Avid MediaCentral Platform-based production workflows to the hybrid cloud.
Following its move last year to standardize on Avid’s MediaCentral Platform, Al Jazeera is now bringing its international news operations into the media cloud era to optimize collaboration for faster story creation and time to market with its programs.
“As an early adopter of cloud-based workflows, we’re establishing a highly responsive and fluid global newsroom environment that better serves and engages viewers across all distribution platforms including, television, digital and mobile,” said Mohamed Abuagla, Executive Director of Technology & Operations (CIO/CTO), Al Jazeera Media Network. “It proves that Al Jazeera is leading the way in developing the newsroom of the future in partnership with Avid, ensuring that it will continue to capitalize on an open platform of common technologies with immense advantages to our journalist and productions teams."
“When media enterprises standardize on Avid tools and platforms, they become well positioned to enter the media cloud era and elevate their creativity, delivery and monetization,” said Jeff Rosica, President, Avid. “Avid was thrilled to feature Al Jazeera’s hybrid cloud breakthrough at IBC 2017. It’s a perfect example of how cloud deployment of MediaCentral can erase disparity and silos from even the most distributed media organizations and streamline workflows that span the globe.”
