Al Jazeera Arabic has unveiled a new look and is launching a HD version of its broadcasts.
The broadcaster now has a complete redesign of studios and graphics and the channel is now available in HD on three Nilesat frequencies.
Ahmed bin Jassim al Thani, director general of Al Jazeera Media Network, said on the move to HD: “This takes the high quality production standards of Al Jazeera to a new level. Viewers will now enjoy sharper pictures, bringing them even closer to the news. SD viewers will also benefit from the clearest possible picture quality. We always put our audience and their expectations at the heart of what we do.
“The Al Jazeera screen is part of people’s homes, so we’ve exerted a great deal of effort to modernize our presentation and look. We have employed the best and latest technology in the industry to maximise the production value. Al Jazeera has distinguished itself through outstanding news coverage and reports. Today, it adds more to its account through the new look.
“This is the first phase of a comprehensive progression plan for the network which includes launching new programmes. I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to our audience, and all staff for their dedication to continuously perfecting the performance of our network.”
