Ghanaian win for Digital TV Labs

Ghana’s National Communications Authority has appointed the UK’s Digital TV Labs as an accredited test centre for DTT receiver conformance in Ghana, supporting the country’s digital switchover.

Digital TV Labs is providing conformance testing services for receiver manufacturers at its ISO IEC 17025 certified facilities. By passing specified tests, products will conform to the country’s new DVB-T2 specification and gain an official logo guaranteeing quality to consumers.

“To gain appointment as an accredited DTT receiver conformance test centre for Ghana is a fantastic opportunity for Digital TV Labs,” said Keith Potter, CEO of Digital TV Labs.

“Our skills, experience and previous work in Africa has demonstrated that we have the credentials to provide an efficient test lab for Ghana’s digital roll-out. This project also acts as an opportunity for us to expand across Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond for the continuing digital switchover of the whole continent.”

Digital TV Labs, which is already working on digital switchover in countries including South Africa, will be presenting at the forthcoming Digital Broadcast Switchover Forum in Tanzania.
