Dish TV sources infrastructure products from Argosy

MUMBAI: Argosy, the leading international supplier of HD broadcast, cables and studio infrastructure products, has announced that it has provided a range of its infrastructure products to Essel Group’s direct-to-home (DTH) company Dish TV.

This installation forms part of an ongoing programme by the DTH operator to expand to its facilities at its playout centre in Noida, India.

Argosy claims that Dish TV has continued to show its confidence in Argosy products including Argosy’s IMAGE HD video cables, connectors, main distributions units (MDUs), routers, video and audio patch panels, racks, audio monitoring equipment and an array of tools such as crimping tools, cutters and strippers, by choosing Argosy as its preferred partner.
“We have had a longstanding relationship with Argosy and chose their infrastructure equipment primarily because the company not only distribute some of the best quality products on the market, they also have one of the largest range of the right products.” said Dish TV president – projects Rajiv Khattar. “The team at Argosy understands our business drivers and continuously delivers the highest quality products, in the shortest possible time to meet our exacting requirements.”

Dish TV provides over 250 channels, majority of which are third party channels which are down linked at the Dish TV facilities before being uplinked to viewers. However Dish TV also teleports content for 50 channels on its own playout network, with some channels being distributed as far as the UK and the USA, South Africa and Russia.

Argosy director Bob Clark said, “Dish TV continues to regularly expand its playout facilities – and we work closely with their engineering teams across the four entertainment companies in the group to ensure that we keep on delivering products that meet their ongoing mission-critical transmission needs.”  
Clark continued, “Furthermore we stock limited spares of our equipment locally in India which allows us to expedite orders to customer like Dish TV as and when these are needed – ensuring we provide the best-of-breed solutions on time and within budget.”

Argosy’s infrastructure products include a collection of SD and HD video, audio and power cables, fibre optic cables and accessories, high density HD video patch panels, MDUs, routers, audio jack fields, rack systems, KVM switches, and Sonarae, its audio monitoring system as well as an array of video accessories.
