AerospaceAfrica.TV, an online commercial TV bouquet of channels has been established to highlight and focus on developments and business news in southern Africa’s aerospace industry. The channel launched online transmission on 18 September 2018, providing news, features, profiles and also providing a platform for information and marketing opportunities for organisations, businesses and related entities in the aerospace and commercial aviation industry looking to communicate with increasingly targeted audiences.
“Aerospace represents the cutting edge of innovation and technology. It is also a sector that promotes advanced skills development and supports tens of thousands of jobs up and down the local supply chain and generates vital high-value export revenues for South Africa. AerospaceAfrica.TV will play a crucial role drawing attention to this economically significant industry and related developments,” explained the channel’s founder and BrandTV Media Network CEO Adolf Spangenberg.
AerospaceAfrica.TV viewers will be able to access top-quality content, in a selection of channels dedicated to specific audiences within the sector, streamed live or on demand. Smart phones are ubiquitous in the aviation sector and therefore the ideal interface for the bouquet of channels brought by AerospaceAfrica.TV, but could also be viewed on tablet and desktop. AerospaceAfrica TV’s channels will also set a new benchmark in online streaming for viewers. The Tysflo video delivery streaming platform, a 100% South African invented platform as a service ‘PaaS’) technology and video experiences start-up, was chosen, because a smarter approach was required to meet the demands of carrying video at HD quality levels to all viewers, across any device, mobile or laptop, across African networks. Not only this, but a proven higher engagement factor was a key success ingredient to ensure the consumer experience went beyond the established norms of broadly available cluttered video portals offered by the major social networks and their supporting video strategies.
According to Adolf Spangenberg, Tysflo have absolutely cracked the video delivery conundrum in the emerging market space with its dedicated video delivery network and a completely new video engagement paradigm, a marketing opportunity to create new product experiences has been unlocked. According to Spangenberg, Tysflo in association with BrandTV Media Network is re-inventing the online media value chain and AerospaceAfrica.TV stands to play a pioneering role in bringing aerospace conversation, products and services to its audience.
