India’s Largest Broadcaster Tunes In to RTS

New Delhi, India New Delhi Television Limited ( NDTV), founded in 1988, is India’s first and largest private producer of news with over 1000 employees, current affairs and entertainment television. NDTV is home to the country’s best and brightest reporters, anchors and producers; 23 offices and studios across the country host India’s most modern and sophisticated production and news gathering facilities.

At home, NDTV 24X7, the flagship English news channel is the market leader with an unrivaled reputation for excellence. NDTV India, the company’s 24-hour Hindi news channel, is respected for its integrity and commitment to real journalism. NDTV Profit, a 24-hour business channel, has established new standards for simple, clear and transparent reporting on the world of business.

Such a reputation demands seamless on-the-fly communication. This is why NDTV chose RTS for their intercom network.

Mr. Neeraj Gupta , Director of Advance Telemedia Private Limited has stated: “NDTV is one of the Leading Indian News Networks in India and have the biggest Intercom Installation in India with the ADAM frame at 160x160 matrix size. NDTV is the first to make use of VoIP connection from New Delhi to Mumbai through the use of RVON-8 Cards preinstalled at ADAM frame and RVON-I/O units.“ Advance Telemedia Private Limited is RTS’ distributor to the Indian broadcast market.

Utilizing a patented Time Division Multiplex (TDM) technique, the ADAM grows linearly as users are added; the system comes standard with newly-redesigned redundant power supplies, and the new redundant ethernet master controllers, MCII-e, allowing for automatic changeover in the event of failure.

ADAM is available with the widest variety of interface cards in the industry, which includes the AIO-16, AES-3, and RVON-8VoIP interfaces. It also has a wide variety of cabling options, including RJ-11, DB-9, jack fields, and many others.

With its NEW second generation controller card, it allows ethernet connectivity between the ADAM intercom and a PC running AZedit, and it can support 32 simultaneous AZedit sessions.

On the user side of the intercom matrix, NDTV has over 40 KP-32 and KP-12 series keypanels installed, as well as several RTS Two-Wire beltpacks. The users are fitted with the popular and cost-effective PH-1R headset model.

NDTV has launched its first channel outside India in partnership with Astro, a leading South East Asia media group. “Astro Awani”, launched in Indonesia, is a 24 hour news, infotainment and lifestyle channel.

Such expansion goes smoothly with RTS’ Worldwide Connectivity model. With RTS RVONVoIP solutions like what NDTV has implemented, users can seamlessly communicate across the globe, as if they were in the next room.

The RTS RVON (RTS Voice Over Network) series allows the full integration of our intercom system into your existing data network. It also allows you to create an independent network for your RVON equipment. Our devices are fully IP-compliant with current VoIP standards. All RTS RVON series devices can be monitored via SNMP. The RVON product family supports ancillary data control for use with RTS Intelligent Trunking. These products enable Trunking over IP for local to worldwide connectivity. RVON components integrate seamlessly with existing RTS intercom systems for worry-free expansion.
