UK broadcast solution provider WTS has signed a multimillion pound deal to upgrade Nigeria’s National Television Authority (NTA) to HD.

WTS worked with Azule Finance to provide a complete end-to-end HD infrastructure, including six HD OB trucks, a nine-metre earth station and upgrades to NTA’s broadcast centre.

Azule has been working closely with the Nigerian government, the UK’s Export Credits Guarantee Department and First Bank Nigeria for two years.
