NEW DELHI and LONDON, January 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Exset B.V., pioneers of TV ecosystems for emerging markets, has announced two key international appointments. This reflects a highly successful 2012 and continued expansion into 2013, particularly for its Digital Monetization System (DMS) and its vital ability to counteract the digital divide in emerging markets and empower populations via the TV screen.

Hema Suri joins the company as Director of Business Development for Strategic Markets, concentrating on Africa and the CIS countries. Suri's most recent role has been with BBC Worldwide Channels as Regional Manager for North India, including Pakistan and Nepal. Prior to that, she worked with Logic Eastern, a set-top box, middleware and head end provider. Based in Dubai, Suri has a masters in Mass Communication from the University of Leicester (UK) and a specialization in International Business from IMM Calcutta.

Rahul Agarwal has joined Exset as a Product Manager for set-top boxes (STB) and is focusing on both Asian and African markets. He brings with him vast experience of working with some of the major broadcast giants including BSkyB and Channel 4 in the UK. He has headed major STB projects and is working to deliver the best technical solution cost-effectively for emerging markets. Agarwal is based in the UK office.

Alex Borland, CEO, Exset, said, "We are pleased to welcome both of these key talents to Exset as the company continues to expand its business in emerging markets. Their experience is invaluable, helping Exset's customers to take advantage of digitization and to be able to monetize pay-TV networks where previously impossible."

Gary Ellis, Exset CTO, added, "The skillsets that these two possess will assist Exset in driving our cutting edge technologies into the pay-TV domain, allowing operators to secure and monetize their networks and also to make them future proof."

Digital Monetization System is an award-winning solution that bridges the gap between technology and value-added services. It allows digital television platforms to be created that can then be monetized where previously impossible. The result allows populations to benefit from new information and entertainment services, while partnering with governments to achieve digital switchover and bringing social transformation.

Exset is also a leading global supplier of conditional access technologies.
