Content metadata specialist Babeleye has announced the integration of its Electronic Programming Guide (EPG) into the HD+ service in Ghana.
Babeleye and SES HD PLUS worked closely with a number of the top Ghanaian local, free-to-air TV channels to implement the necessary mechanisms for a successful EPG deployment. The HD+ EPG is based on DVB standards and is currently presented in English.
Commenting on the development, Theodore Asampong, Director of SES HD PLUS Ghana, said: “Babeleye brings in the local market knowledge and the technical excellence, which represents another step in fulfilling our promise of delivering high-picture quality TV content, excellent service and premium world-class TV viewing experiences at an affordable price to the Ghanaian audiences.”
Hamid Ouddane, CEO of Babeleye, added: “We are very happy to have worked with SES HD PLUS on this launch in Africa, where we thrive as leaders in video metadata. It was yet another great opportunity to show our expertise in building the EPG elements from scratch.”
