Connected to the submarine optic fiber running along the Atlantic coast, our head office in Pointe Noire (Congo) is a hub of interconnectivity topped with satellite dishes on its roof. In the control room of our studio, a technical and production team – 100% African, trained over several months by professionals from euronews – takes charge of our on-set shows such as The Morning Call, the first Pan-African bilingual live news program. Our channel is entirely HD, endowed with our own in-house news production system and over fifty work stations, translation booths, a data center, a multi-camera, electronically controlled studio and SI tv (nrcs/MAM/editing/mixing)… You’re lost?
