Malaysiaâ€™s free-to-air television, scheduled to go digital in 2015, will provide viewers with better quality pictures and sound compared to the analogue terrestrial reception that Malaysians are currently viewing.
In a statement today, Deputy Minister of Communications and Multimedia Datuk Jailani Johari said the quality of sound and pictures would improve with the transfer from analogue to digital terrestrial TV (DTT) broadcasting.
â€œIndustry players and viewers are set to gain from the various features of DTT offered by MYTV Broadcasting Sdn Bhd under its Five Pillars services,â€ he said when officiating a seminar organised by MYTV today.
MYTV has been awarded a licence by the government to operate the infrastructure and network facilities for DTT services in Malaysia.
Jailani reiterated that industry players must now entice their audiences and understand their interests according to specific genres.
Industry players must also offer them content or programmes that are based on the concept of interactivity and connectivity, which hopefully could lead to the creation of â€œnext generationâ€ content, he added.
The invitation-only first seminar is a niche workshop tailor-made to professionals in the broadcasting industry. Subsequent seminars are scheduled to be held in April and June 2015 respectively. â€“ BERNAMA
