Dubai TV to go HD

Chris Forrester

Never a nation to do things half-heartedly, Dubai says its 5 TV channels will go HDTV. The move is in line with the directives of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, said the official communiqu, or as Star Treks Jean-Luc Picard might have said, if asked, Make it so!

Ahmad Abdullah Al Shaikh, Shaikh Mohammad's media aide and the Managing Director of Dubai Media Incorporated which runs the channels, announced the transformation into the new system, stating that its quality would be ten times better than the analogue system, which again shows that you can fool some of the people some of the time.

Nevertheless, it is a good decision. Al Shaikh said the move made Dubai the first media establishment in the Arab world to change to the new system. One might respectfully alert Mr Al Shaikh to be aware of a number of channels now broadcasting in HDTV over the region, as well as the Emirates own E-Vision cable system which has been carrying HDTV offerings for some time.

No timetable was given for the changes.
