The National Media Commission (NMC) has held a public forum to discuss the handling of the Single Point Transmission platform which is an infrastructure that will transmit contents to all televisions under the digital migration.
The forum held Monday at Elmina sought to engage key stakeholders from the security, academia, media and civil society organizations among others on the entity to handle the single Transmission platform.
The digital migration is expected have a single point of transmission of contents to all televisions instead of different television stations transmitting their own contents as in the analog.
Addressing stakeholders after discussions at the forum, the Chairman of the National Media Commission, Nana Kwasi Gyan-Apenteng explained it is important for an independent entity to handle the single platform to avoid any political interferences which will compromise the stability of the media landscape.
