Digital solutions no longer a choice but a necessity: Malaysian Communications Minister #ABUdbs2019

Tuesday 05 March, 2019

Malaysia’s Minister of Communications and Multimedia, YB Tuan Gobind Singh Deo told the Digital Broadcasting Symposium in Kuala Lumpur:

“Digital technologies are transforming the way business are working and how information is shared and exchanged.

“It is no longer a choice, but a necessity, to deliver digital solutions if you want to compete.”

In his first speech at DBS as the new minister, Deo focused on the audience.

“Audiences demand that broadcasters make content available to them on their choice of device. If broadcasters can’t meet those requirements audiences will switch to providers who can.”

Malaysia is moving quickly to help broadcasters move into the digital age and is working very closely with countries in the region to achieve this goal.

“ Malaysia has made huge investments in digital technology… we hope to be able to announce analog switch off soon.”

He praised national broadcaster RTM’s new platforms that can deliver better content. “RTM has been transforming itself in recent years, developing its own OTT platform and delivering catch up tv and radio content.”

After his keynote speech, the minister officially opened the DBS Exhibition.
