29 May 2003

Mumbai: InduSind Media & Communications, the Multi-System Operator (MSO), has announced that it will brand its conditional access system (CAS) service 'INDigital.'

IndusInd, a subsidiary of Hinduja TMT, has tied up with multiple set-top box (STB) providers and has placed an indent for a "significant number" of STBs, which will be installed in subscribers' homes by 1 July 2003. IndusInd has also tied up with Nagravision of Switzerland for the deployment of CAS.

Among other initiatives for the CAS rollout, slated for 14 July 2003 in the four metros, IndusInd is installing advanced digital headends in Delhi and Mumbai, provided by Tandberg of Norway, and setting up 24/7 call centres in these two metros to provide customer support.

"Our digital system will offer up to 300 channels. Even customers with lower-capacity colour TV sets or black-and-white TV sets will be able to access all channels without having to change their TV set," says K V Seshasayee, chief technology officer, Hinduja TMT. "The STBs will come with extended warranty terms, and our customers will have multiple payment options."
