Stage set for Freedish-encrypted MPEG4 STB rollout as DD shortlists 5 suppliers

MUMBAI:  Five set-top box (STB) manufacturers have been selected by Doordarshan for supplying encrypted MPEG4 STBs for its free direct-to-home (DTH) platform Freedish. These original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are Modern Communication and Broadcast System, Velankani Electronics, BGM Holding Company, KMTS Engineering, and Millennium Technology. The authorised OEMs will integrate their STBs with the iCAS and DD-approved firmware/middleware. The STB OEMs will be required to provide the duly certified integration testing report from the iCAS OEM and the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) certification. DD will test five such STBs and, on successful integration and testing of the STBs, it will issue a letter of intent to the STB OEM. The STB OEM will be required to submit the requisite performance bank guarantee (PBG) amount to Doordarshan within 15 days of the issue of the letter of intent. After receipt of the PBG amount, Doordarshan will enter into an agreement with the STB OEM, authorising it to sell iCAS and DD-approved firmware/middleware-enabled STBs in India for reception of DD Freedish service.

The STB OEMs will have to contact ByDesign in Bangalore for all STB integration and certification related to iCAS platform. Earlier DD DG Supriya Sahu had told TelevisionPost.com that the encrypted STBs would be rolled out in April. The rollout of encrypted STBS will allow Freedish to keep a tab on its subscriber numbers. It will also help in increasing the channel-carrying capacity to 104 channels, up from the 80 channels it offers currently. In September 2015, Doordarshan had set in motion the process of rolling out encrypted MPEG 4 STBs for Freedish with the issue of tender for appointing authorised STB OEMs. The e-application was issued on 20 September. The delivery period of STBs is three months. The target is to provide 250 channels through the MPEG 4 STBs. Freedish will also get additional transponders for expanding its service. “We will get additional transponders for providing 250 channels. Currently, we have six transponders,” Jha had added. Freedish currently provides 80 TV channels and 30 radio channels through MPEG-2 STBs. This is likely to be enhanced to 104 SDTV channels and 40 radio channels in the near future with the introduction of new MPEG-4, DVB-S2 stream.
