Riedel Communications has opened dedicated sales and support operations in Dubai.
The new operations are being led by Ahmed Magd El Din, who will be based in Dubai, and will represent Riedel at key trade shows and industry events.
Among these is CABSAT, where Riedel will present the new Grass Valley camera interface for the company's MediorNet real-time network for video, audio, data, and communications in hall 7, stand C7-30. The new MediorNet MN-GV-2 card allows the user to route bidirectional camera signals, including all embedded audio and telemetry control data, for Grass Valley 3G camera systems and base stations across the MediorNet fiber infrastructure. Recent deployments of Riedel products in the Middle East include installations at Sky News Arabia and for the Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi.
"The Middle East region is one of the most exciting and rapidly expanding markets in the world at the moment," said Magd El Din. "I look forward to providing Riedel customers in the broadcast, event, and installation markets with the integrated solutions that will help them run their businesses and applications in the most cost-effective and future-proof manner. With our dedicated office in Dubai, we're positioned to provide even more direct customer support and faster service."
Magd El Din joins Riedel having most recently served as Clear-Com Communication Systems' sales manager for the Middle East region. He earlier held the positions of regional sales manager for Almasa IT Distribution and Silicon21-Dubai, as well as product manager for Cisco Systems.
