Workshops to address CAS in Mumbai, Delhi

MUMBAI: Confusion may still shroud the actual implementation of conditional access in the country, but the industry cannot be faulted for not trying its bit to clear the air.

At least two workshops have been called by cable operators' organisations and allied institutions in Delhi and Mumbai in February to focus attention on the issue of CAS and its implications, overt and otherwise. The Satellite & Cable TV Guide has organised the SCaT Bombay Workshop on 18-19 February at the Taj Land's End, Bandstand.


The exhaustive 12 session workshop will cover issues like addressability and different addressable systems, subscriber management systems, set top box specifications, fibre optic systems, digital CATV, convergence and the Headend in the Sky project. The workshop, say organisers, will have experts answering participants' queries and providing factual information and system details not easily available to a player in the cable industry.

The Avishkar Business Network in New Delhi too, is organising a 'Cable TV ki Nai Disha', a conference and workshop that will be held on 15 February in New Delhi and will cover states like Punjab, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, Delhi and Rajasthan. According to the organisers, the workshop is a part of a series of conferences to be held all over the country to familiarise professionals and entrepreneurs with the implications of CAS. In the first session, the four metros, Bangalore and Hyderabad are to be covered.

Speakers will cover issues ranging from network upgrading, pay channel solutions, FTA channels promotions, fiber optics, fibre to home and software (SMS/SAS).
