Excaf Telecom selects HTTV's Hybrid TVOS solution ahead of Senegal’s analogue switch-off

12 Sep 2014

Excaf Telecom Group, the digital terrestrial television (DTT) operator tasked with carrying out Senegal’s analogue TV switch-off, has signed a contract with HTTV for the deployment of up to one million set-top boxes (STBs). Excaf says that the new DVB-T2 platform will enable the Senegalese people to access free-to-air and pay-TV content over newly digitalised DTT signal. According to news reports, Excaf Telecom Group is the first operator in Francophone Africa to manage the analogue switch-off as agreed upon by the UAT (the African countries’ organisation for telecoms) and to launch pay-TV on the newly freed-up DTT spectrum. Its STBs are based on STmicroelectronics’ STiH253 new DVB-T2 chipset.
