April 30th 2012. Prague, London, Dubai, Nairobi: Leading Broadcast and Multiscreen System Integrator Visual Unity has consolidated its position in the Middle East and Asia by appointing Jamal Bnari to the position of Head of Sales and Marketing for both regions.
Visual Unity’s unique expertise in linear and multiscreen solutions is already helping broadcasters, operators and government agencies in the Middle East and Asia to deliver the premium viewing experience that their audiences demand.
