“Ecopia” in HD highlights the broad spectrum of new titles that is representative of the quality that DW has to offer

DW Transtel has announced its lineup for MIPTV 2012, adding a new HD title to its already thought-provoking range of programming. With multi-genre content ranging from current affairs, economics and politics to arts, culture, lifestyle and science, the new programming palette is tailored to today’s educated audience. DW will be presenting these titles and many more at MIPTV in Cannes from April 1-4.
“DW is very committed to sharing the European perspective to audiences around the world,” says Petra Schneider, DW’s Director of Distribution. “We do this by presenting the facts, explaining contexts and analyzing background information. With a focus on science, culture and education, we make sure that everything we produce is precise, relevant and easy to grasp.”
The high-quality content from DW Transtel is always presented in an entertaining way and developed with the viewers in mind. “Opinion leaders and the generally curious have always looked to DW for new insights and viewpoints from Europe that aren’t available from other sources,” added Schneider.
