TSL Systems is proud and delighted to have been named System Integrator of the Year at the ASBU (Arab States Broadcasting Union) BroadcastPro ME Selevision Awards held in Dubai, UAE on 14 November 2017.

The award recognised TSL Systems for its work to deliver MBC’s new facility at Dubai Studio City – a project that featured an aggressive timeline, an unfinished building and an immovable deadline. Working closely with MBC’s broadcast team to gain their trust and respect, TSL’s Dubai team, led by CTO Suhail Ahmed and supported by TSL UK, pre-built the entire system offsite in an ‘Intensive Care’ clean facility and rebuilt it again on-site once the building work was complete. The system featured the first ever regional deployment of the Avid Interplay Delivery system to connect the new facility with MBC’s HQ situated 15km away, as well as the Dante audio networking protocol. The system went live on 5 March 2017, on time and within budget.


Jeremy Rees, Managing Director, TSL Systems, said, “Our work at MBC Studio City was recognised by the industry as being an amazing example of delivering technology and service. By taking the time to understand what MBC really wanted, having the technical expertise to provide a high-standard design and working closely throughout the delivery in partnership with MBC, our incredible team continually went the extra mile (and further) to ensure the success of the project. We have a very happy customer and a well-deserved reputation as the market leading SI in the region. Huge congratulations to Suhail and the whole team!”

Suhail Ahmed commented, “I am very much humbled and extremely pleased that TSL is getting the recognition it deserves. I would like to dedicate this award to every one who has, directly and from behind the scenes, helped deliver a project that has again proven to our industry that TSL stands for quality and is a true business partner.”
