MGI Provides Service and Support to Qatar University's Film and TV Department


Qatar University has signed a contract with leading systems integrator Media Group International (MGI) to provide multi-vendor support and maintenance services for its TV Creative Content and Production Systems. Installed in the University's modern studio and post production facility, these systems are used by students on creative TV and Film studies programs.

Eric Faust, Qatar University's TV Studio Manager, says: "MGI brings a high level of technical competence and industry knowledge to the university, thus enabling us to provide year round state of the art production facilities to its students. Our support relationship with MGI will ensure our facility has the highest level of availability. The University is delighted to be offering high quality educational facilities and programs to both Qatar-based and international students with the reassurance that they have a team of local industry experts to keep our facility operational and state of the art.”

MGI has invested heavily in developing high quality after-market support services to bring International expertise and technology partnerships to Qatar. By working closely with companies such as CJP Broadcast Service Solutions Ltd, MGI can now offer expert support services with the implementation of their ITIL 3.0 Support Desk Software and processes.


Roger Barton, sales Director of MGI, adds: "We are delighted to have been awarded the Qatar University contract and look forward to a long standing and productive relationship that will bring many benefits to the facility and its students. These benefits will also enhance the TV media sector within Qatar by bringing international organisations and technology vendors closer to the region."
