NEW DELHI: Headend In The Sky (HITS) operator JAINHITS has become the first service provider to uplink on 11.3 meter ViaSat antenna in the Asia-Pacific region.
The antenna is in line with the latest digitisation amendments announced by the government. This installation will allow JAINHITS to provide better signal quality which is available at all business partners downlink set-up. In addition to this, the quality of signals emitted will be uniform and will significantly eradicate interference of any kind.
On this endeavour, Noida Software Technology Park Ltd (NSTPL) head- regulatory & corporate affairs Devinder Singh said, “With the commissioning of 11.3 meter ViaSat antenna, we expect high quality of pan India based digitised TV coverage. We have got all the mandatory tests done and will start up-linking very soon. With the advent of this technology and its implementation by JAINHITS, we hope to re-invent the entire TV viewing experience for our customers by providing them with the maximum network uptime.”
From a compliance standpoint, the antenna complies with FCC and ITU regulatory standards on emissions. Apart from that, it meets INTELSAT’s Standard F-3 and B requirements with minimal satellite re-pointing time using a high speed motorised option. It even comes with 180 degree continuous azimuth coverage and features like lighting, protection and de-icing that can make it survive wind speeds in excess of 201 km/hr.
JAINHITS head Rakesh Gupta said, “With an insight into this dynamic consumer world, establishing an up-link with the 11.3m ViaSat is a part of our on-going effort to enhance the TV viewing experience for our customers. JAINHITS distribution partners across India will get to approach customers with a unique set of product USPs, one of them being BIS certified STB’s and the other of course a technologically advanced platform and uplinking facility through 11.3m ViaSat antenna for better picture quality, and with uninterrupted signals.”
