Dubai TV selects LPD system

Dubai TV has become the first broadcast installation in the Middle East to make use of Prym’s LPD technology. The broadcaster’s sports studio backdrop has been transformed by the installation of a 4m x 1.2m video wall.

Rashed Amiri, Head of Dubai sports channel said:

“We met with four other manufacturers of different videowall platforms before deciding that Prysm was the right solution for the studio. The qualities and features of the laser phosphor display technology within the broadcast environment are in line with what we want to bring to the sports channel in the future.”

Ihab El Baba, Managing Director of Baba Broadcast Services explained: 

“I first became aware of this new technology platform at PALME Middle East exhibition. The crisp picture quality, low power consumption and long life span are all qualities that go beyond existing platforms and I will recommend that other stations use this for studio backdrops from now on.” 

Ihab has over 20 years of broadcasting experience, as well as strategic consultancy for workflow design for televisions station and newsroom systems. 

In terms of picture quality, LPD delivers a viewing angle of 178°, ideal for different camera angles as the screen never loses its picture quality and colours remain consistent within tiles and throughout the videowall. The temperature of the screen’s tiles can be individually set depending on the studio environment and use, ranging from 11,000K to as low as the 2700K, ensuring skin tones are portrayed accurately and in line with the presenters in the studio.
