Tanzanians have been urged to adopt digital technology as the analogue one phases out.
Speaking at the launch of office automation professional business services in Dar es Salaam yesterday, SCI business development manager Arsene Matai said as a result of digital technology, audio visual solutions had been applied to most organisations by formulating their information communication technology (ICT)’s strategic vision.
“As Tanzanians we have a wealth of industry experience and knowledge to meet growing needs of the business environment,” Matai noted.
According to him, today every audio visual (AV) product moves towards the network. “What is indeed is a shared vision between AV and ICT,” he noted.
He explained that, through innovative product technology devices had been able to be transformed from traditional devices into modern and sophisticated ones within.
Matai stressed that, “a smart board interactive display system, which replaces traditional projectors, whiteboards, flip charts and the smart board can be connected through Wi-Fi to multiple devices in the board room.”
He added that, iPads, laptops, desktops and many other smart devices would be able to enable participants to edit/overlay presentation without changing the original content, mailing the same or printing instantaneously.
“This helps in energy conservation, heat dissipation and is an environmentally-friendly solution rather than using a mere desktop,” he noted.
For his part, Musa Cheyo, a studio businessman said the combination of LED/LCD technology, which could be used for digital signage, video conferencing and media displays, were user friendly and the best solution in this transition from analogue technology.
Cheyo said those devices had been converged into multi-functional devices providing a vast amount of ‘capturing’ capabilities. He noted that, “these devices will be deployed, installed and maintained”.
He said as a manufacturer it would help develop and deliver products for accomplishing faster outputs with better quality.
