Education Minister Ruel Reid, says discussions are well advanced with a local company to facilitate the transmission of digital content in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics to certain schools.

The Education Minister was speaking last week following the opening of the Commonwealth Digital Broadcasting Caribbean Forum 2017 at The Knutsford Court Hotel in New Kingston.

The ‘digital switch’ is the process occurring worldwide to replace old analogue broadcasting formats with a fully digital format.

Eventually, broadcast media using only analogue signals will be unusable.

Minister Reid says the switchover is of particular benefit to the education sector.
