At CABSAT MENA 2011, Internet TV company, Vision IPTV will launch a commercial and technical hub in Dubai, UAE, to support customer expansion throughout the Middle East, West Asia and Africa regions.
John Mills, Vision IPTV CEO, said, “Vision and our partners see considerable potential in the region to extend our reach, build new audiences and offer quality broadcasters in the region a global distribution solution that they can monetise fast – all without large capital outlay”.
Mills added, “In addition, the global spread of citizens from the region and the influence they hold is of strategic and commercial value for all national and commercial MENA broadcasters. We intend to offer them the same far reaching solutions that our clients, including Russia Today, use to reach a larger audience, in homes, hotels and businesses across the world.”
Vision IPTV’s regional expansion in the MENA region follows the recent £10 million (€11.6m) Chinese investment deal with Vision IPTV’s London-based sister company, Soho Data Holdings.
