The Lagos State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde has canvassed support for the migration of analogue broadcasting to digital as a way of boosting the standard of television broadcasting in the country. He thus commended the management of Lagos State Television for quality broadcasting over its three and half decades of existence.
The Commissioner made the advocacy during the LTV Special Day event at the 2015 Lagos International Trade Fair.
Mr. Ayorinde stated digital broadcasting migration directive from International Telecommunications Union, (ITU), would not only improve the quality of images from television stations, but would also attract wider viewership and create international leverages between Nigeria Broadcasting Corporation, (NBC) and its contemporaries across the world.
The Lagos State image maker noted that, as media practitioners’ approach the Digital Switch over (DSO) deadline, adequate attention would be given to the State-owned television station with a view to giving it the deserved support for a cutting-edge advantage over its peers.
Mr. Ayorinde said that, it was the desire of the State Government to place the State’s television firmly within the Top Three bracket among TV stations in Nigeria, hence, its investment in the acquisition of necessary equipment and the total overhauling of its studios for better broadcasting.
