GatesAir And Pinnacle Communications Collaborate In Nigeria
GatesAir provided the DVB-T2 headend, which improves UHF spectrum for multichannel services. It also provided all electrical material and RF systems needed for the country buildout. The transmission system was commissioned on behalf of Nigeria’s National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) over a three-month period.
Pinnacle Communications as the licensed signal distributor for Nigeria, is working together with the Nigerian regulator, NBC, to strategise future expansions of the service.
Phil Argyris, GatesAir CEO says as Nigeria’s DVB-T2 digital TV rollout advances, the company will work together with Pinnacle Communications and other investors in Nigeria to provide the necessary systems to exact specifications. He further says GatesAir know-how in managing national DTV projects will guarantee quick delivery and placement of high-efficiency systems that reduces total cost of ownership and improves performance over an extended period.
