Indian broadcaster NDTV acquires six Snell & Wilcox Kahuna production switchers

Indian news and current affairs channel New Delhi Television (NDTV) has purchased six 4-M/E Kahuna SD/HD multiformat production switchers for its new NDTV Metro Nation and existing news channels.

With its intuitive control surface, the Kahuna production switcher will allow operators at NDTV to come up to speed quickly in producing live programming, and the stable operation of the system will ensure round-the-clock productivity and maximum uptime in bringing the new channel to air. The Kahuna's format flexibility provides a future-proof solution that will accommodate further growth of NDTV's broadcast operations.

NDTV will begin using each Kahuna system in SD-only mode, but the switcher's HD upgrade path, which enables multiformat SD/HD use or HD-only use, gives the broadcaster future flexibility in working with and combining the two formats. The Kahuna production switcher integrates SD and HD inputs on the same control panel and within the same mainframe.
