European broadcast service provider BCE has made its first appearance at CABSAT as it looks to break into the Middle East market.
The Luxembourg-based company, which offers post production and OB services as well as playout, transmission and digital archiving, will be looking to offer its expertise as an engineering consultancy to clients in the region.
“The media industry is bursting at the seams in the Middle East,” said Laurent Seve, marketing manager, BCE.
“There are a lot of great projects going on such as twofour54 and Dubai Studio City. With these there comes a lot of opportunities,” added Seve. “We operate in many areas of the industry but we think it is our expertise as an engineering consultancy that we can offer a lot to the region.”
The company includes technical staff with experience in IT, telecommunications, software development and systems integration.
“I think this combination could be very attractive. What we have to do now is to get in touch with clients in the region and learn how to operate here.”
