The Government of India has passed the bill for Mandatory Digitization. According to this bill Digitization is Mandatory in the country according to the following timeline
An Ordinance has been passed by the Govt. of India on the mandatory digitization of the Cable Services. According to this amendment made in the section 9 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Amendment Ordinance, 1995, the I&B ministry will make Digital Addressable System mandatory. Each and every household in the Metros will have to move from analog cable. TV viewers in India would definitely go for a DTH Connection as it has more features. However a DTH Connection comes with a Reflector commonly known as a dish. Every member in the Society having a DTH connection would mean multiple Reflectors on the terrace or in the premises. This spoils the look of the society.
The Multi Dwelling Unit (MDU) is a customized solution for connecting multiple houses within the same multi storied building with a single Antenna/Reflector to receive Direct-to-Home services . MDU is a centralized network consisting of multi switches and amplifiers for distributing the signal received by one or two Dish antennas. The Dish Antenna captures the signals and transmits them through multi switches on to the individual STBs in the subscriber's flat. The setup is customized depending on the number of connections and the connectivity structure of the building.
