Impact of Digitization of the Broadcasting Media in Nigeria


The study of Williams, R.C (2018), Impact of Digitization of the Broadcasting Media in Nigeria, A study of Nigeria Television Authority (NTA Enugu). The study ascertained the level of media digitization in Nigerian Television Authority, Enugu (NTA) in this Era of ICT and internet operations. The study holds that the first Practical demonstrations of television were developed using electromechanical methods to scan, transmit, and reproduce image. As electronic camera and display tubes were perfected, electromechanical television gave way to all-electronic systems in nearly all applications.

According to Anaeto et’al (2018), Information Communication Technology (ICT) has been the converging platform for different word of media communication, information machine and technologies and equipment i.e. Radio, Television, Computers, satellites, Fibre optic Cables, phones, Facsimile machine etc.

Consequently, the acquisition, utilization and application of information communication technology in media practice today makes the world activity less cumbersome, faster and error proof. The foregoing views is in tenderm with realistic scholarly position’ adopted by Maid (2016), who posits that new information, communication technologies have revolutionized information gathering, processing, storage, retrieval and transmission, making information available even more widely, rapidly and less expensive. They do not only gather, process and disseminate information, they can also arrange, marshall and select information rapidly.

In spite of the above merits, the truth still remains that acquisition and application of these advanced media, technologies by media outfits in Nigeria especially the government owned stations in their gathering, packaging and transmission equipment is still insufficient.

Indeed, the recent survey carried out in a bid to ascertain the current state of acquisition and utilization of ICT facilities by the television broadcasting stations in Nigeria, which is clearly depicts that some stations has not fully embraced this trend in the overall packaging and transmission of News and programmes.
