General News ZEEL gets teleport licence to uplink TV channels
MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL) will set up its own teleport to uplink its fleet of television channels.

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) has cleared ZEEL’s application to secure a teleport licence.

Earlier, ZEEL was using the teleport of Dish TV to uplink its TV channels.

“We had applied for a teleport licence. We have got the approval from the MIB. Though currently we are using Dish TV’s teleport infrastructure, we have decided to have our own facility. We will set up our own teleport from where we will uplink our channels. There will be no overlapping,” said a senior executive.

ZEEL obtained the teleport licence from the MIB on 29 November. The entertainment broadcasting company owns and operates a total of 37 standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) channels across diverse genres and languages.

ZEEL already has a transmission facility at Noida, as per information on its website. The facility became operational in March 2002 with a single dedicated 9.3m antenna operating on the AsiaSat 3-S satellite with only one operational channel, Zee News. It now covers over 55 broadcast channels using dedicated teleports and a complex network of optical fibre links, satellite broadcast transmissions, content contribution links and internet streaming.

The Noida facility was fully revamped in 2012–13 with full HD core network, file-based media workflows, playouts with advanced media architecture, and interfaces to massive archival and retrieval systems dispersed among the Zee network production and transmission sites. Full file-based media workflows are achieved by an extended media network that encompasses even the production houses on the same platform.

The entire media network now operates on redundant high-speed optical fibre links and connects the playout hub to the Mumbai production facility, regional clusters, as well as Zee’s partners in media production, advertising and live events.

According to ZEEL, the uplink facility at Noida is equipped with state-of-the-art compression and automation systems for playout of content and its efficient delivery. Noida teleport features most advanced antenna switching system for high reliability and flexibility in operations, as well as automated monitoring of multi-satellite deliveries.

The MIB has so far permitted 81 teleports to uplink channels from India.
