Technology & Convergence - In Brief

Technology & Convergence

- Informa Telecoms and Media forecasts that 22.2 million homes will be watching 3DTV programming globally by the end of 2015. This figure represents just 1.6% of the world’s TV households, so significant growth is still very likely beyond this date.

- On June 1st 2012, Multi-channel pan-African content provider M-Net has announced that a season of films dedicated to African humour has been added to the African Film Library (AFL), following the launch of the video-on-demand service earlier this year. The catalogue includes: Max and Mona, a story of village boy with extraordinary mourning skills, FESPACO 2007 winner Le President A-T-IL le Sida aka The President has Aids, Cameroonian comedy Pousse-Pousse and Rickshaw Tricycle Man by Daniel Kamwa, Soweto Green, a political drama-comedy made after South Africa's first historic democratic elections, Zimbabwean comedy-drama Kini and Adams by Idrissa Ouedraogo.
