THE SCaT INDIA 2014 TRADESHOW
Cable TV digitisation will be the primary focus and theme for SCAT India 2014 Tradeshow.
With the initial DAS Phase I and II completed, the emphasis has shifted to lower cost digital Headends. Complete digital Headend solutions including digital Set Top Boxes available in relatively small quantities will be packaged and offered by exhibitors for smaller cable TV networks. STB Middleware will be standardized some vendors will be offering the option of regional language middleware and captions for their STBs.
Upgrading to digital requires a good distribution plant also. Several exhibitors will also be offering conventional optic fibre & RF Cable TV transmitters, nodes, amplifiers, fusion splicers as well as advanced tested and measurement systems and equipment from a range of Indian and leading international manufacturers.
