Digital Migration: Bridging The Digital Divide

The world is moving towards Digital Broadcasting. The impact on television not only results in better picture and sound quality, but it also enhances the lives of ordinary citizens on a global scale.

DiViTech’s main aim is not only to assist you to migrate to digital television but also to assist you in bridging the so-called “digital divide‘’ that exists between people with effective access to information technology and those with very limited access, or in some cases, none at all. This in turn leads to redressing the unequal acquisition of technical skills and knowledge. Acquiring these skills improves technical know-how and promotes the optimal use of digital technology in general. Enhancing the standard of living is an obvious benefit, but the introduction of digital television also opens up a host of other economic opportunities with specific reference to the ICT sector, local content providers and the creative industry as a whole.

Digital Migration: Benefiting Industry and Government

  • Releases spectrum to enable the use of other digital services
  • Provides the opportunity for Government to sell unused surplus spectrum.
  • Enables new business models, fostering competition and stimulating the economy.
  • Creates new revenue opportunities for local broadcasters.
  • Saves on the decommissioning of the existing analogue network
  • Promotes the growth of local manufacturing and retailing industries.

Digital Migration: Improving Quality of Life

  • Improved service quality.
  • More channels being broadcasted.
  • New services such as interactivity, EPG and subtitling.
  • Access to digital radio through television.
  • e-Government services.
