NEW DELHI March 1, 2006 : CNN-IBN, a news and information channel being launched in India by TV18 Group Company's Global Broadcast News (GBN) and Turner International, has deployed Snell & Wilcox's IQ Modular products for an easily reconfigurable and scalable broadcast infrastructure backbone.

Television Eighteen India Ltd (TV18) is India's premier news broadcaster and the owner of CNBC TV18. The new CNN-IBN service will build upon TV18's newsgathering experience and CNN's extensive global news network to provide audiences with business and consumer news.

Whenever we implement a new project, we are under tight deadlines, and we need reliable product and manufacturers to honor our tight delivery schedules, said Sanjay Sharma, TV18 vice president of operations. Snell & Wilcox has always come through for us, and its large range of IQ Modular systems provides us the reliability and efficiency we need for our daily operations. We have been using Snell & Wilcox products over the past 10 years, and it is the first company we approached when we planned to expand our offerings to include CNN-IBN.

The TV18 installation consists of a wide variety of Snell & Wilcox IQ Modular products, including distribution amplifiers, audio analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, synchronizers, and time-base correctors all of which will be intelligently linked through the Snell & Wilcox RollCall control and monitoring system.

The stringent demands of real-time news operations require cost-effective, high-quality smart broadcast infrastructure products that can easily adapt to the constant change found in a typical news studio, said Joe Zaller, vice president of marketing at Snell & Wilcox. Our IQ Modular infrastructure range provides a flexible platform for broadcasters that can be easily reconfigured as their needs change. It also brings the benefit of our RollCall control and monitoring system, which can instantly identify potential problems in the signal path. This makes IQ Modular the ideal choice for a 24-hour news operation.

Snell & Wilcox's IQ Modular infrastructure system provides more than 300 intelligent component building blocks with which to construct any kind of broadcast facility. The convenience and flexibility of the Snell & Wilcox broadcast infrastructure range has made it very popular in studios throughout India, including at TV Today Network, Star News, ZeeTV, Eenadu TV, and NDTV.
