Kolkata to host Cable TV Show from 15 February

MUMBAI: Cable TV Equipments Traders & Manufacturers Association (CTMA) is organising the three-day satellite and cable television show - Cable TV Show 2011 Kolkata - from 15-17 February at the Netaji Indoor Stadium.

Nearly 10,000 cable operators, traders, manufacturers, channel partners, distributors, broadcasters and multi-system operators (MSOs) from across India, Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal are expected to attend the show. A special demo room at the Cable TV Show 2011 would showcase the evolution of cable TV in India from the black and white era to the current 3D technology.
“The I&B Ministry‘s proposal to fix a sunset deadline has generated lot of interest among the cable operators. We have received many queries from equipment manufacturers and vendors who want to participate in CATV 2011. This year there would be 66 stalls and 16 pavilions,” said CTMA Exhibition Committee chairman Pawan Jajodia.

West Bengal, along with southern India, has the highest density of cable TV homes. West Bengal accounts for nearly eight per cent (5.44 million) of the total 68 million cable television subscriber base in the country. The number of cable TV subscribers in Kolkata is estimated at 2.8 million approximately, CTMA said in a statement.
“The sunset deadline of March 31st 2012 for Kolkata has come as positive move for cable operators who feel this would expedite the issue of addressability and arrest the migration of subscribers to the direct-to-home (DTH) sector. The fraternity associated with the expanding cable TV industry and trade look forward to this annual Cable TV SHOW that has emerged as one of the largest events in India showcasing a large variety of latest products and services besides providing a sneak peak of latest technological developments,” said CTMA president Rajesh Doshi.
