I and B Ministry to launch centralised monitoring system for tracking encrypted signals

New Delhi , Thu, 21 Mar 2013 ANI

New Delhi, Mar. 21 (ANI): In a major initiative to monitor the progress of digitization and to ensure the mandatory adherence of transmitting digital encrypted signals by Multi System Operators (MSOs), the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is in the process of installing a centralised monitoring system to keep a tab on the encryption of channels by MSOs.

The system will be able to detect those MSOs who do not carry the mandated encrypted signals.

MSOs are required to carry encrypted signals of TV channels in areas where digitization has been implemented as mandated by Section 4A of Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995.

Transmission / Re-transmission of unencrypted signals would amount to violation of Terms and Conditions of MSOs.

For the above purpose, a web based pilot project for the DAS monitoring system installed at Bangalore is undergoing field trials.

Once implemented, it will enable the ministry to keep a watch on the implementation of DAS by all the MSO licensees through this system.

To start with, this system will help the users to centrally acquire, log, analyze and prepare report on the status of DAS parameters like total number/name of channels, encryption status etc of cable TV signals of head end of each registered MSO across the country in real time.

This system can be augmented in future for content monitoring of the cable TV channels at local levels.

It is expected that the system will also evolve as an alternative indicator of television viewing by consumers. (ANI)
