NDTV (New Delhi Television Limited), an Indian television media company, has embraced the Quicklink TX for daily contributions into its prime-time debates.
Founded in 1988, NDTV offers round-the-clock coverage of the latest news and has a mix of news bulletins, current affairs, talk shows, and general interest and entertainment programs.
The Quicklink TX Quad has enabled NDTV to introduce guests into its debates using any Skype-enabled device. As the Quicklink TX can receive from and send to any Skype user, it provides NDTV with global access to millions of Skype users in order to broadcast the calls in HD quality.
“Having used the Quicklink TX daily during our prime-time debates, we’ve found the quality to be excellent and the technology to be faultless. The Quicklink TX has added significant value to our productions,” said Dinesh Singh, Chief Technology Officer at NDTV.
The Quicklink TX, designed in partnership with Microsoft, is a video call management system. It is a transceiver that enables professional reception and transmission of multiple Skype video calls through SDI inputs/outputs and HDMI interface.
