DishTV to deploy Newtec Technology

February 1, 2019

Newtec, a specialist in the design, development and manufacture of equipment for satellite communications, is providing its M6100 Broadcast Satellite Modulator to enhance efficiency on DishTV’s DTH platform. DishTV is the largest DTH service provider in India. The M6100 is part of a wider upgrade that will enable a next-generation viewing experience for its customers. The modulators will provide DishTV with significant cost efficiencies through better bandwidth utilisation.

“As the largest DTH service provider in India, our aim is to provide the best services to our customers,” said V.K. Gupta, CTO at DishTV India Limited. “Technology and back-end infrastructure play a crucial role in providing a distinctive customer experience. With the adaptation of Newtec satellite communication technology, we have taken one more step to advance our existing infrastructure and technology. Newtec, with its high reliability and efficiency, will enable us to optimise the available bandwidth to its core, ensuring we can deliver high quality services consistently across the country.”

“When DishTV approached us with its upgrade requirements, Newtec’s proven heritage and innovative technology was evident,” said Sven Bolthausen, SVP APAC Sales at MediaKind. “It was very important that we enabled DishTV to maximise the potential of its DTH network both today and into the future. Deployment of our state-of-the-art AVP 4000 system together with Newtec’s forward-thinking technology will ensure that DishTV can deliver the immersive services it wants to offer to its customers.”

“We have built a very long-term and close relationship with Newtec over the years,” said Kuldeep Kaul, Director, CEO, at Horizon Broadcast. “As a result, we know the capabilities of the technology and the huge difference it makes to DTH broadcasting in India. Bandwidth is precious, and broadcasters rely upon a failsafe solution that gets the most out of the available bandwidth. Newtec delivers this, and much more for the future.”
