Government testing agency approves INDigital's STBs

MUMBAI: The ministry of communications and information technology's Electronics Regional Test Laboratory (ERTL) has quality tested the digital set top box of Celetron, which will be marketed by INCableNet under INDigital brand name. 

A statement issued by Hinduja TMT claims this is the first quality test approval for any digital set top box in India by an authorised government testing agency. This particular Digital STB model (No: IRD C-282- NG) of Technotrend Germany has also been formally tested and approved by TUV of Germany, the premier testing and certifying authority of Europe, the sytatement adds.

HTMT chief technology officer KV Seshasayee was quoted as saying, "These are world class tried and quality tested Set top digital boxes, which will be given in Indian Homes, starting with Mumbai and Delhi from 1st August.These are widely deployed in Europe and elsewhere."

A statement issued early this month by the Rajan Raheja promoted Hathway Cable and Datacom had stated that its STBs had been cleared as meeting Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) specifications. A Hathway release stated that Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Ltd (BECIL) conducted a live test on Hathway’s digital STB and confirmed that it met BIS specifications. This was done after extensive tests and a live check, the release said.

Meanwhile, INCableNet's COO Rajiv Vyas was quoted as saying, "Several consumer friendly schemes have been designed by INCableNet, which will be launched shortly and will be designed for direct sales, and rentals through cable operators, which will help any class of economic segment to easily go for CAS."

The implementation roll out plan for CAS is on full swing at INCableNet, however the Cable Operators and MSO's (Multi service operators) along with the consumers are still awaiting the final rate plans of the broadcasters, so that the concrete pricing packages for consumers can be announced, which will be able to dispel out lot of uncertainty surrounding CAS impact on customers, the statement says.
