India's Munsif To Launch Dera TV Channel With Grass Valley

In one of the largest broadcast technology projects in the region, Munsif, a growing newspaper and print media company in Hyderabad, India, is set to launch a new 24-hour national news channel called Munsif TV with Grass Valley technology.
A new facility, now under construction, will include five Grass Valley standard-definition LDK 400 cameras, a Kayak DD2 production switcher, Concerto Series router and a Grass Valley Aurora, multi-seat, shared-storage digital news editing platform.
The project is planned to be on air in November 2009 and represents one of the few large projects being built in India at present. The contract also calls for Grass Valley to provide local services, such as equipment installation, commissioning and training over several years.
Khan Lateef Mohd Khan, Chairman and MD, said: "We chose Grass Valley for its excellent technology and the competitive pricing we received."
Aslam Ahmed Khan, Vice President of Munsif TV/Division of Dera Television added: "Another important factor was the local support that Grass Valley engineers will provide us on an ongoing basis. This was critical to our success in building a state-of-the-art facility to produce our news programmes."
Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President of Grass Valley, said: "Grass Valley is proud to support Munsif TV as it enters the very competitive television news market. Whether in India or around the world, both new and existing broadcasters consistently turn to Grass Valley for our advanced technologies and superior support."
