Conax has announced its contract with Audio Visual Global JSC (AVG) to deliver a high-end security solution for AVGs new DTH satellite and DTT service in Vietnam. AVG is the first private firm in Vietnam to be awarded broadcast licences for digital technology and permission to broadcast television programmes nationwide.
Additionally, AVG has already completed the purchase of broadcast rights for sports events – a benchmark for Vietnamese federations to generate revenues on sports broadcasting.
Vietnam is one of the fastest growing pay-tv markets in Asia-Pacific with a population approaching 90 million, including 18 million TV households. AVG plans to offer up to 80 channels and the advantages of a digital environment to households across the nation, driving the standard for pay-tv services in Vietnam.
