Newtec Provides Modulator to DishTV for Indian DTH Market
Newtec will provide its M6100 Broadcast Satellite Modulator to help enhance efficiency on DishTV’s Direct-to-Home (DTH) platform. According to the release, DishTV is the largest DTH service provider in India and the world’s largest single-country DTH company. The M6100 is part of a wider upgrade that will help enable a next-generation viewing experience for its customers. The modulators will provide DishTV with significant cost efficiencies through better bandwidth utilization.
DishTV has recently decided to upgrade and expand its entire headend platform with the global media technology company MediaKind in order to meet rising demand for a more immersive TV experience. This enables the company to deliver both traditional and multi-screen services from a single platform to its 23.5 million subscriber base.
Newtec’s certified business partner Horizon Broadcast will provide the Newtec modulators. Newtec has a long-term and trusted partnership with Horizon Broadcast and has provided its equipment to DTH broadcasters in India, helping enable them to maximize throughput in a country where bandwidth is limited.
