ECS, OH TV to offer broadcast solutions in Africa

MUMBAI: ECS European Communication Services and OH TV have joined forces to offer the African broadcast market joint solutions providing broadcast and IPTV access to the African continent and around the world.

Together the companies are providing both a turn-key satellite broadcast service across Africa and an IPTV service via OH BoX‘s IPTV Platform for the UK, European and international markets.

Taking advantage of emerging technology opportunities in both regular broadcast and new media IPTV, ECS and OH TV are supplying a two for one service.

Africa-based broadcasters and Africa-centric content channel operators seeking to increase their audience size can utilise a strategically located satellite over Africa, full downlink facilities in the UK and complete access to OH BoX’s IPTV platform to extend their distribution over all of Africa and add their content to OH BoX‘s IPTV service reaching Europe and across the globe.

"Our advanced service offers local and regional broadcasters in Africa a new opportunity for covering all Africa and growing internationally. We can bring them to various cable head ends around the continent, UK, Europe and US. Working closely with OHBoX‘s IPTV Platform, the channels will be available on laptops, tablets, smartphones and computers around the world," stated ECS CEO Eran Avni.

"The keys to our turn-key solution are the top edge technologies we use to compress and distribute content that enable our partnership to bring excellent pricing to the market. This is the ECS edge."

OHTV CEO Akin Salami commented, "The promise of Africa is here. OH TV‘s cooperation with ECS is a step forward to bringing the continent‘s culture and entertainment to the international Black Diaspora. This partnership will offer broadcasters the most cost effective way of creating a global TV channel. All channels on OH Box‘s IPTV platform are ‘App ready’ giving them a competitive edge when compared to other international channels."
