MEDIAPRO has produced some of the most prominent sports competitions held in Africa in recent months. In addition, the level of production and events held in East Africa has increased in recent years and its expansion continues throughout the continent.

In Kenya, the Group will deliver the production of the FKF Kenyan Premier League for three new seasons (20-21, 21-22, 22-23). MEDIAPRO, which has produced the competition for the past three years, signed the contract extension with the new head of league rights that began last November. Medialuso is in charge of producing more than four matches weekly broadcast on the digital platform PVP Startimes and the national network KTN.

In Morocco, the MEDIAPRO Group provides VAR services to the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRFM) of the Botola Pro League for the second consecutive year.

The MEDIAPRO Group, responsible for installation of audiovisual system in the new Ophthalmology surgical wing in Hospital Clínic de Barcelona
The most notable features of the new facility is its integration of technology and which will enable the performance of some 30 operations daily in its 4 operating rooms

Unitecnic, a MEDIAPRO Group company specialized in audiovisual engineering, carried out the audiovisual installation project for the new Ophthalmology surgical wing at Hospital Clínic, a pioneering facility given its spatial and technological design. This new operating area is located in the Maternitat facility in the Les Corts district in Barcelona. The facilities were inaugurated on December 10th as phase 1 in the creation of the CLÍNIC Eye Training Center (CETC).

The MEDIAPRO Group, through Unitecnic, was responsible for the installation of the audiovisual system for the 4 new operating rooms in which some 30 operations will be carried out daily. Each room is equipped with 4K screens, PTZ cameras, wireless microphones, multi-vision systems and management of internal connections in the operating room itself or external via streaming or videoconferencing (Zoom, Team, Webex, etc.). For this project, the company employed an IP transmission system that offers the highest video quality.

Unitecnic integrated all the audiovisual features with an automated control system operated from the nursing station computer itself. This control system facilitates the entire and seamless management of the system enabling medical professionals to operate the system without requiring advanced technical know-how.

The audiovisual system of the surgical wing integrated the Videoma recording system, existing in the central headquarters of the Clinic on Calle Villarroel, installed by the MEDIAPRO Group several years ago. This integration between the two centers allows three audio and video ingests, as well as ingesting direct metadata from file from the nursing station computer itself. In this way, the system streamlines recordings and Videoma system search engine that was initially available.

The Hospital Clínic Ophthalmology Surgical Wing at the Maternitat headquarters is part of a more ambitious project that involves the creation of the CETC, which will promote the first Ophthalmology training center to include practical training stemming from the initiative of a university hospital. The future CLÍNIC Eye Training Center will integrate training equipment and practical training.

The first phase of the construction of the Clinic's surgical wing, in which the MEDIAPRO Group has worked, will be completed with phase 2 of the creation of the Ophthalmology training center, which aims to become the most significant such center in Southern Europe. This future facility will include several training spaces, including a laboratory, DryLab, a WetLab laboratory as well as a conference room.

The WetLab laboratory will be equipped with 6 state-of-the-art microscopes and, like the conference room, will have an interactive 4K screen, multi-vision system, wireless microphones, public address systems, AV connections, etc. In addition, the surgical wing and the training center will be fully connected via an ethernet network as well as through the 10GB audiovisual system. As such, the interactivity of the two spaces will facilitate training and educational communications.

Unitecnic is the MEDIAPRO Group company specialized in audiovisual, multimedia and system integration engineering. The company designs, develops and delivers turnkey projects from the initial idea to the consulting stages through the integration, installation and maintenance of the implemented systems. Unitecnic operates a specialist division for medical environment projects and has offices in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Miami and Buenos Aires. In addition, it is an international distributor of all the major broadcast environment brands.

“L’Èxit de la Temporada” celebrates 30 years of El Terrat (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO)
The play, written and directed by Enric Cambray and Israel Solà, will be on at the Coliseum Theatre in Barcelona until February 28th 

El Terrat (THE MEDIAPRO STUDIO) has kicked off 30th anniversary celebrations in style with the premiere of the play at the Coliseum Theatre in Barcelona until February 28th. “L’Èxit de la Temporada” is a comedy which is a big part of the year-long party for the production company headed by Andreu Buenafuente. The play has a high-profile cast made of a host of actors closely linked with El Terrat over the years, such as Sílvia Abril, David Fernández, Fermí Fernández, Oriol Grau, Mònica Pérez, Jordi Rios, Mònica Macfer and Alba Florejachs.

The show, written and directed by Enric Cambray and Israel Solà, revolves around the story of six friends who star in successful TV and radio programs, and who decide to team up to put on “Romeo and Juliet”, to showcase their acting talent. An unlikely turn of events means the show never sees the light of day and twenty years on, the six friends get back together to try to do what they weren’t able to do all that time ago.

Somewhere between fiction and reality, the play’s over-riding theme is friendship as well as reflecting on the passing of time, winning, the relationship between success and fame, satisfaction, personal frustrations and the life of a comic through the figures of actors Catalan theatre-goers have seen grow old and who’ve they’ve laughed along with. The show isn’t a potted history of the production company but rather a new creation which sets out to recapture the spirit and language of the company built around a hilarious plot full of strong emotions.

L’Èxit de la Temporada”

The Coliseum Theatre (Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 595 Barcelona)

Performances: from Wednesday to Sunday

Show-times: from Wednesday to Friday 20.00 / Saturdays 17.00 and 20.00 / Sundays 18.00
