Nigeria: Firms Partner to Boost Emerging Markets

In a renewed move set to redefine digital migration in India and the digital pay-tv space in the other emerging markets across Africa, Exset and Digital Telemedia (DTM) have announced their partnership deal, aimed at addressing digital migration in terrestrial television streaming.

According to the deal, DTM will develop value-based MPEG-4 set-top-boxes for digital cable in South Asia using Exset CAS.

The boxes will also be suitable for use with Exset's DMS technology for other emerging markets in Africa, Nigeria inclusive.

DMS allows digital television platforms to be created and commercialised, where it was previously impossible. This means populations can benefit from new information and entertainment services, while partnering governments can achieve digital switchover bringing social transformation.

According to Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Exset, Mr. Gary Ellis, "DTM's management vision, global presence and ability to address customers need in the context of Indian and African digitisation, will be a defining factor."

Director International Sales, DTM, Huang Wie, said: "Exset's DMS philosophy will allow digital switchover and empower populations via TV screen-based information dissemination. The DTM set-top boxes that are designed and implemented for DMS will be a game-changer globally."
