It the booming era for Exset B.V.
The company continues it’s growth with key technology and Business Development appointments.
Recently, Exset B.V., pioneers of TV ecosystems for emerging markets, announced two key international appointments.
And reports from London, United-Kingdom, show that Exset B.V. has announced two key international appointments.
This reflects a highly successful 2012 and continued expansion into 2013, particularly for its Digital Monetisation System (DMS) and its vital ability to counteract the digital divide in emerging markets and empower populations via the TV screen.
Hema Suri joins the company as Director of Business Development for Strategic Markets, concentrating on Africa and the CIS countries.
Suri’s most recent role has been with BBC Worldwide Channels as Regional Manager for North India, including Pakistan and Nepal. Based in Dubai, Suri has a Masters in Mass Communication from the University of Leicester (UK) and a Specialisation in International Business from IMM Calcutta.
While Rahul Agarwal has joined Exset as a Product Manager for set-top boxes (STB) and is focusing on both Asian and African markets. He brings with him vast experience of working with some of the major broadcast giants including BSkyB and Channel 4 in the UK. He has headed major STB projects and is working to deliver the best technical solution cost-effectively for emerging markets. Agarwal is based in the UK office.
Alex Borland, CEO, Exset, said, “We are pleased to welcome both of these key talents to Exset as the company continues to expand its business in emerging markets. Their experience is invaluable, helping Exset’s customers to take advantage of digitisation and to be able to monetise pay-TV networks where previously impossible.
And Gary Ellis, Exset CTO, added, “The skillsets that these two possess will assist Exset in driving our cutting edge technologies into the pay-TV domain, allowing operators to secure and monetise their networks and also to make them future proof.”
DMS – an award-winning solution – bridges the gap between technology and value-added services. It allows digital television platforms to be created that can then be monetised where previously impossible. The result allows populations to benefit from new information and entertainment services, while partnering with governments to achieve digital switchover and bringing social transformation.
Exset is also a leading global supplier of conditional access technologies and is a broadcast technology and solutions company founded in 2011.
It is based in The Netherlands with offices in the UK, Estonia and India. Exset provides complete solutions to the television industry focusing on emerging markets where localisation, social and economic factors require a fresh approach to traditional technology supply.
Exset works collaboratively to provide a unique service, understanding developing markets and working with TV operators in to monetise platform deployments.
