The 2012 edition of the prestigious award show Canal d’Or that will take place on March 17  seems poised to be unique given the number of innovations around it. In addition to the giant street screen advertising the event and to broadcast it live, here comes another extra-touch: djoss.t.v. According to the minds behind this concept, it will enable not only televiewers but also internet users to witness the show live. It will be unique in the sense that it will provide a much more fascinating and interactive experience since viewers will be able to watch and discuss about the ceremony as it is broadcast . Who said Cameroonians were not in touch with 21st century multimedia? So ready your laptops and P.Cs.
