Benin: ORTB gets trained for regionalization


From May 12 to 20 2014, a delegation from ORTB ( Benin ) visited France 3, a national TV channel in France. Meetings allowed the ORTB delegation led
by Ms. Pascaline ANANI, Director of Radio and Mr Wabi BOUKARI Director of
Television, to prepare for a possible regionalization of the national television in

These meetings and visits showed France 3’s network organization, the materials used: regulated manufacturing and broadcast studios and automated studios, as well as lightweight digital mobile control material type , AVIWEST
(light material transport signals for 3 and 4G), etc.

Discussions with various officials were also the opportunity to discuss issues relating to the organization (organization of services, coordination with Headquarters, operation of various services, hierarchy and functional services, etc.

Different modes of regionalization were discussed (e.g. the regionalization of France 3 network, Outremer 1ere) but also other modes of organization present in Europe, particularly through the intervention of Jean- Marc Dubois, president of CIRCOM.

A trip to the regional stations of Nantes, Vanves and Le Mans took place. The delegation saw the broadcast of a regional news mag, the recording of a local news via an automated studio, and watched several regional programs.

Beyond the France 3 network and in the perspective of ORTB’s regionalization other meetings were also organized within Radio- France ( France Bleu ) and Outremer 1ere.
