Zee group co picks BEL set-top boxes

Our Bureau

Bangalore, Nov. 20

Bharat Electronics Ltd said it has bagged a `breakthrough' order from a Zee group-owned company for the supply of two lakh set top boxes. The order was placed by Wire and Wireless India Ltd, Mumbai. The boxes would be supplied with embedded conditional access software that enables the subscriber to choose the pay channels from the bouquet offered by WWIL.

The supplies would start in December coinciding with the expected roll out of the conditional access system (CAS) in January, the defence electronics major said. The metros will have to introduce CAS in phases while the service providers are getting ready to deploy the STBs in large volumes.

BEL said it has pioneered the design and manufacture of STBs in the country and its capacity can meet the high volume requirements of large service providers such as WWIL. BEL also manufactures DTH and DTT varieties of set-top boxes. The product is one of its main civil arrays along with the electronic voting machines and solar lighting.
