“We are excited about offering digital terrestrial television in Mali, as it will significantly improve our viewers’ quality of experience while offering a broader range of content choices. Working with Thomson Broadcast and Viaccess-Orca, both leaders in their respective industries, will help us get this new DTT service securely deployed to market,” said Ismaila Togola, CEO of SMTD.
Amine Oubid, CEO of Thomson Broadcast added ‘’Transitioning to digital television can be a complex undertaking that requires extensive technology vendor and system integration experience.
