CNN reopens Abu Dhabi hub

April 19, 2016

CNN has unveiled new “state-of-the-art” broadcasting facilities at its redesigned Middle Eastern hub in Abu Dhabi.

The network has completely reconfigured its studio, which is home to CNN’s flagship current affairs programme, Connect the World with Becky Anderson.  The facility now features the very latest HD broadcasting equipment and a re-imagined space that opens up a range of new possibilities for news, programming and community initiatives.

Anderson, Managing Editor at CNN Abu Dhabi, said: “There are two parts to this project: we’ve integrated the latest HD cameras and equipment, touchscreens, lighting and a quite stunning LED wall into the main studio space, which create a completely fresh look and feel on air.  On top of that, we’ve reconfigured our rooftop space, giving us new scope for our show teams to get creative.  The overall result is a versatile, hi-tech hub that is the perfect base for our Middle Eastern operation.”
