Mini-BOBTV promotions content direction
THE need to review trends, business policy and regulatory environment of content in this challenging era of broadcasting, particularly in view of the imminent cut over in Nigeria from analogue to high definition is the reason the organisers of BOBTV have decided on a mini-BOBTV event, scheduled to hold in Lagos, at the Protea Hotel Ikeja on December 8, beginning from 9am. The founder of the BOBTV event, Amaka Igwe disclosed recently, that experts will meet at a round-table to examine content delivery systems in a high definition broadcast environment. ‘This is not another talk shop’, she averred adding that the one-day event shall feature local and international contents available for acquisition in the New Year and an exhibition on the latest technologies for high definition, broadband as well as software. ‘It is more like a promotion of content direction for the New Year and as government is coming out with policy on high definition, we thought it wise to have a chat on that at this point’ she stated.
