MCQ and beIN Studios launched a multi-year collaboration in September 2021. Under the partnership, MCQ will facilitate access to beIN's Studios and production facilities for potential regional and international media partners. One of MCQ’s key partners, Euronews, has thereby been able to use the studios for their production requirements of ‘The Exchange’, one of Euronews’ most popular locally-produced shows.
The Exchange places ideas and innovations at the forefront of business, featuring interviews with business leaders and decision-makers, from FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, to His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, CEO of Qatar Airways. To date, The Exchange has recorded more than 22 episodes at the beIN Studios.
Filming of The Exchange moved to a larger studio over time, drawing on more advanced filming capabilities, from a multi-camera setup to state-of-the-art lighting, graphics, sound, and production capabilities. beIN Studios also offer seamless content transfer, making it a one-stop-shop for all production needs.
This partnership between MCQ and beIN Studios is a testament to the collaborative efforts of two Qatari entities to promote media advancement in Qatar. MCQ believes that this collaboration will support the growth of media and content creation in the country.
