Wed Productions in Jeddah is the first customer in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait to place an order for a MediaComposer 9000 XL NT system with 180GB Fibre Channel rack mounted storage. Also a first for Wed Productions is the order of the BlueICE accelerator board together with Adobe After Effects Production Bundle and various other add-on applications that will certainly enhance and differentiate their editing and content creation.

The MC 9000 XL will integrate seamlessly with their other current equipment: an Avid AudioVision, Digidesign ProTools|24 MIXplus|AV and Softimage|XSI on an SGI 330 Dual P3 workstation through the OfficeServer EMS – also a first for Wed Productions.

Wed Productions chose the MediaComposer 9000 XL NT system as an upgrade to their existing MediaComposer 4000 Mac-based system purchased from Computer Point in 1997. We anticipate delivery of this system to Wed Production to be completed by the 2nd week in July, 2000 and will announce this achievement through a press release once the system is completely commissioned.

In choosing Computer Point as their preferred supplier for these equipment, Wed Productions confirmed our superior customer support abilities and the excellent relationship that developed between the two establishments over the past few years. We will continue to work very closely with our premier customers to ensure their continued success by continuing to provide them with on-time information and support.
