These according to a statement from the office of the Director General, Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON), Osita Aboloma Esq. is the focus of the 2019 celebration of the World Standards Day being coordinated by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) with the theme “Video standards create a global stage”.
“International Standards meet industry demand for powerful compression capabilities and enable smooth transitions to the next generation of video compression technology, helping industry to maximize return on each wave of investment”, he said.
The SON Chief Executive stated that having standards recognized and respected all over the world means that video encoded on one device can be decoded by another, regardless of the device being used. This, he said introduces economies of scale that help to grow the market, giving innovators the confidence to invest in new video applications and services.
Aboloma affirmed that the Standards Organisation of Nigeria as a representative of these international standardization bodies in Nigeria would continue to propagate the global standards through adoption and modification for local use, manpower training through seminars, workshops, consumer enlightenment activities and certification of products including management systems to international standards.
