Elemental Technologies, a supplier of software-defined video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, has announced that Alarab TV, a soon to launch Arabic-language news channel, has chosen Elemental video processing systems for its live linear and multiscreen TV service offerings.
Alarab TV aims to bring its viewers news from around the world which impacts their lives. Based in Bahrain, the all-Arabic channel will include extensive news programming as well as regular news roundups and travel content.
