Tata Sky Ensures Quality of DTH Offering With Wohler Audio Monitoring Systems

HAYWARD, Calif. — March 3, 2009 — Wohler Technologies Inc., today announced that Tata Sky, a joint venture between the TATA Group and STAR, is using a range of Wohler monitoring systems to support direct-to-home (DTH) satellite television service that delivers 170 channels to more than three million connections across India. As Tata Sky, the fastest growing DTH provider in India, expands its channel offering, the company’s Wohler gear provides mission-critical monitoring for uplink, downlink, master control, and transmission areas.

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. All of these Wohler systems provide convenient functionality in a compact design. The AMP1-S8SDA, for example, offers exceptionally high-quality audio monitoring, processing and monitoring up to eight channels from an SDI bit stream, two sets of four AES/EBU signal pairs (balanced and unbalanced), or eight balanced analog channels — all while occupying just one rack space in a standard 19-inch wide rack.

“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.”
