CTO, NBC bring 3-day Digital Broadcasting Africa forum to Lagos

The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) and National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) have concluded plans to stage a three-day Digital Broadcasting Africa Forum 2016 to Lagos, the commercial nerve centre of the nation, reports ITRealms.

The forum, which commences tomorrow, Wednesday at the Eko Hotels and Suites, Victoria Island, would last till Friday this week.

According to the Communications Team at Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO), the event comes with the theme: The pan-Africa transition: Achieving digital migration success.

ITRealms reports that some of the highlights include a joint CTO and National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) meet the press session, just as topics such as “Broadcast Technology Trends, Next Generation, Entertainment, Creation of Local Content, Digital Migration and Spectrum Allocation, Financial and Business Considerations, The consumer Perspective, Digital Radio, Achieving Digital Inclusion, and Financial and Business Considerations” would top agenda.

Robert Hayman, Manager, International Events had informed ITRealms that the event promises to build on the successful Digital Broadcasting Switchover Forum Africa events that have taken place over the last decade, and recognises the changes that have taken place in broadcasting during that time.

These events have helped policy makers, regulators and operators from the African broadcasting and Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sectors to map out their strategies for digital switchover.
