The General Manager, Programme Services, Ogun State Television (OGTV) Mr. Festus Kehinde has disclosed that the world class digital studio for the state television would be ready for commissioning in May.
Mr Festus disclosed this while taking his turn to highlight the achievements of the state television during the on-going budget performance appraisal held at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, pointing out that the ultra modern studio when operational would place the station as the best in the sub-Sahara African region.
The new studio which would house new digital equipment, would serve as a catalyst towards the achievement of the digitization policy in meeting up with international standards in the broadcasting industry.
Kehinde added that the station had stepped up plans towards sustaining transmission on DSTV AND GOTV launched last year, while equally running a parallel terrestial transmission in the period under review.
He sought for the immediate replacement of the station’s transmission and production equipment for ease in editing and production process.
In the same vein, the Acting General Manager of Ogun State Broadcasting Corporation (OGBC) Mr Diji Akinhanmi said the station had deployed the needed human and financial resources for the effective dissemination of credible, reliable and dependable information beyond the boundaries of the State.
