India TV goes dLive
INDIA: An Allen & Heath dLive S Class digital mixing system has been installed at India TV’s state-of-the-art broadcast centre in Noida. The broadcaster is part of Independent News Service Private Ltd and has an audience reach of more than 90 million viewers.
The dLive system installed manages audio connectivity at the broadcast centre and forms part of a larger sound system upgrade. It comprises an S7000 Surface and a DM64 MixRack.
‘My team is very impressed with Allen & Heath’s sound quality, and the S Class dLive system has a huge I/O capacity, enabling them to manage the increasingly wide network of channels,’ explained Ajay Seth, technical general manager at India TV. ‘The dLive surface is very user friendly and we did not face any issues transitioning from analogue to digital, and the powerful 96kHz processing core provides amazing headroom and extremely low latency, which is an ideal environment for broadcasting. Also, the user-defined bus architecture is a big bonus. dLive completely outshone the competition.’
