Let’s aim for more transparency

As this industry grows and matures, it’s time for us to discuss the need for more transparency about the kind of systems broadcasters here are putting in place. Currently, most broadcasters maintain an air of secrecy about the equipment they are installing or don’t seem to have the enthusiasm that the IT industry has, to speak about it to the press.

|~||~||~|A month from now, Cabsat will be upon us. For Digital Studio especially, this is an exciting time of the year as we will be hosting the second annual Digital Studio Leadership Awards and a gala dinner on the evening of March 7, the first day of the show. What will make this year’s awards ceremony even more successful than last year is the fact that we have invited our readers to participate in nominating people and companies for the various awards categories. We have already had several entries but if you haven’t already nominated someone in this region who you think deserves to be acknowledged, here’s your opportunity to do so. Go to www.digitalstudiome.com for details on how to be a part of this grand ceremony. As this industry grows and matures, it’s also time for us to discuss the need for more transparency about the kind of systems broadcasters here are putting in place. Currently, most broadcasters maintain an air of secrecy about the equipment they are installing or don’t seem to have the enthusiasm that the IT industry has, to speak about it to the press. Many stories go unreported because of this general apathy on the side of both the broadcasters as well as the vendors and systems integrators. There is a need for a change in this attitude. This will elicit a chain of positive reactions from the broadcast industry. The more the world knows about what is happening here, the more attractive this region will be to both vendors and service providers. This, in turn, will make pricing more competitive and also bring more quality services to the region. End users will benefit tremendously. Let’s all work towards this end. ||**||
