Speaking of the association, Aidem Ventures director Vikas Khanchandani said, "InSync has the potential to set the standard for excellence and innovation in the Indian Television industry while forging deep connections with diverse and passionate audiences. We‘re looking forward to working together with the InSync team to represent and deliver legendary musical experiences that endure for generations."

Ratish and the Perfect Octave team have been in the musical events management business for over a decade. As a part of the launch marketing strategy, the channel plans to connect to and to build awareness amongst its local targeted audience by organising 40 to 50 musical concerts across India over the next one year while simultaneously covering them on the channel.

Also a part of the launch strategy is the show ‘I Can‘. This flagship property that will predominantly focus on discovering and nurturing young talent from across India and for this InSync will reach out to various parts of India. The talent thus discovered, will be promoted on the show and will be offered concerts in India and overseas. If need be, maestros will train the talent to reach expertise.

Talks are currently on with the major DTH platforms in India and a few international distribution players as well," said Manish.

"As the only heritage music channel available, InSync has the first-mover advantage. It has been gaining tremendous response from the market. The channel offers a much higher level of engagement with a range of branding opportunities beyond just FCT therefore attracting cross-industry advertisers. Currently, there are a host of events in the pipeline. We are also going to be offering customisable, branded event solutions to keen advertisers," added business head, Hindi entertainment & niche channels Nikhil Sheth

We already possess 300 hours of original, HD quality, video content. By the end of the year, we will have 700 hours more. We consider it our responsibility to help nurture and encourage India‘s interest in classical music. While we continue doing so, we‘re certain that Team Aidem will help achieve the channel‘s optimal revenue potential," said Ratish Tagde.
