GS Group, international hi-tech holding of Russian origin, has been nominated for the annual "Big Digit" (in Russian "Bolshaya Tsifra") national award. Projects of the holding became an example of successful Russian high-technology transfer abroad.
In a special nomination "For contribution to the development of Russian international projects in the field of high technology abroad" the company can gain appreciation of the jury "For assistance in the development of Russian international projects in the field of high technologies abroad".
GS Group projects have become the first successful experience of Russian high technologies in the broadcasting field transfer abroad. This is an instance that the companies from Russia are not only able to operate successfully in the field of high technology, but also to deliver advanced solutions and business models abroad, implementing projects in the international markets, which Russia can be proud of.
Having significant expertise in the field of Russian national digital TV projects (GS Group is a technological partner of Tricolor TV, the leading Russian and third largest in the world satellite operator), GS Group successfully implements broadcasting projects all over the world. In 2012 GS Group launched One TV, the first project of digital TV in the Royal Kingdom of Cambodia. The television platform became the first nationwide digital pay-TV operator in the country, having the widest coverage area in Cambodia. It now reaches 70% of the territory. Launch of this digital broadcasting platform has become a real breakthrough for the country, exceeding the planned digital switchover planned by Cambodian government.
"Big Digit" is Russia's first national award in the field of multichannel digital television. In 2014 the awards will be held for the fifth time. In 2013 over 150 nominees applied for different nominations of the award, the total TV audience exceeded 10 million households. In addition to Cambodian project, two channels produced by "1 TVCH", TV Company within the holding, are also involved in the award.
