South Africa-based company, Agilitee Africa, has announced plans to launch the first-of-its-kind Smart Digital TV (DVB)-T2 with Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Eastern and Southern African countries, including including Malawi in February 2022. .
The company’s chief executive, Dr Mandla Lamba, said it is a next-generation TV that uses telematics for voice recognition and the remote instruction system, the age to instruct a TV controlling with your voice and other artificial intelligence features.
The TV is ISO certified.
“For those who are not connected to the national grid, you don’t have to worry because the new TV model can run on solar power and its battery never loses power,” he said.
This means it can be played in the desert even in cold weather because the battery powers itself as it is used, he said.
He added that the company has already supplied to Rwanda, Nigeria and South Africa.
In February next year, the company will launch its TV in Malawi, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Tanzania and Namibia.
However, he said, second generation digital satellite broadcasting (DVB S2) is a digital television broadcasting standard that was designed to succeed the popular DVB-S system.
It was developed in 2003 by the Digital Video Broadcasting project, an international consortium and ratified by ETSI (EN302307) in March 2005.
Now, he said, Agilitee TV already comes with the system and that means there is no need to buy the government one.
He thought the whole continent would follow after South Africa migrated to the new technology.
