Qatar TV chooses Pebble solutions as part of their plans to future proof their broadcast operations

Weybridge, Surrey, UK, 13 December 2021: Pebble, the leading automation, content management, and integrated channel specialist, is pleased to announce that public service broadcaster Qatar TV, has chosen Pebble to deliver a bespoke automation, playout and management solution as part of their plans to upgrade their system and future proof their broadcast operations.

Qatar TV is a long-standing customer of Pebble having deployed their Neptune automation software in 2013. In a bid to drive efficiencies in their linear playout and improve the control of their mission-critical operations, Qatar TV commissioned a complete installation of the newer Pebble Automation solution. They ran this in parallel with Neptune before successfully making the full transition to Pebble Automation.

As part of their systems refresh, Qatar TV’s primary objective was to leverage the robust best in class functionality that Pebble Automation offers, reducing repetitive tasks and adding increased flexibility. Choosing Pebble Automation was a cost-effective solution for Qatar TV allowing them to effectively streamline their workflows.


“We have had the pleasure to work with Pebble for a number of years now and upgrading to Pebble Automation was the next step in improving our broadcast workflows and operational efficiency,” comments Ali Elsakka, Head of Engineering at Qatar TV. “Pebble offered a simple migration path, with the reassurance of a seamless transition from Neptune to the powerful capabilities of Pebble Automation. We’re delighted with the success of the project and excellent continued support from all the teams involved at Pebble, and look forward to continuing to work with them for many years to come.”

Pebble maintains a strong presence in the Middle East, with their solutions controlling more than 400 channels across 17 countries at around 70 sites in the region.

Samir Isbaih, VP of Sales at Pebble said: “It’s brilliant that we at Pebble, yet again, have delivered a successful migration to Pebble Automation for another broadcaster in the Middle East. Qatar is a key market for us in the region and having successfully taken Qatar TV to air has been hugely rewarding. We look forward to building on the success we are having in the Middle East as we continue to invest in resources and R&D and delivering solutions to meet the ever-changing needs of broadcasters.”
