Wohler gear provides monitoring for uplink, downlink, master control, and transmission areas for Tata Sky, a joint venture between the TATA Group and STAR, and a fast-growing DTH provider in India. Tata Sky’s New Delhi facility includes eight AMP1-S8SDA eight-channel multiformat audio monitors; four AMP1-VS, one AMP1A-LP, and nine AMP1A two-channel stereo audio monitors; four AMP1A-LP10S monitors capable of handling up to 10 stereo analog inputs; and two LM26-24 24-channel level meters.
“With its commitment to providing DTH services that offer superior-quality pictures and audio, Tata Sky sets a high standard for India’s television industry,” said Carl J. Dempsey, Wohler’s president and CEO. “Our monitoring systems offer ease of use, reliability, and convenience even in complex multichannel facilities, and we anticipate a continued rise in adoption of Wohler monitoring gear in India as this exciting market continues to grow.”
