YahLive, the Abu Dhabi, UAE-based High-Definition (HD) television satellite platform for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, and GlobeCast, a leading content management and delivery company, today announced a new partnership in which GlobeCast will provide YahLIve with a 24/7 monitoring and reporting service for YahLive’s satellite signals (video, audio & data) across the MENA region.
A part of YahLive’s ongoing Customer Excellency (Customer First) programme, GlobeCast’s around-the-clock, real-time monitoring and detection services will enhance YahLive’s quality control, maintenance and incidence response capabilities for its growing channel bouquet.
The local monitoring and reporting initiatives will be based in GlobeCast’s regional monitoring center in Jordan Media City (JMC), in Amman, Jordan. GlobeCast’s global reach and JMC’s regional presence will result in detailed reporting that combines local expertise with global capabilities. GlobeCast is a subsidiary of France Telecom-Orange group.
The agreement was signed by Georges Baroud, CEO of GlobeCast Middle East, and Mohamed Youssif, CEO of YahLive.
