Prasar Bharati & Sansad TV ink MoU for uplink of ‘Sansad TV’ in HDTV format

Public Broadcaster- Prasar Bharati and ‘Sansad TV’ which a division of Parliament of India, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for uplink of ‘Sansad TV’ in HDTV format free of cost in exchange of archival content of LSTV and RSTV.

Prasar Bharati will also carry Sansad TV-SD in its DD Free Dish Platform. It has now been decided to merge Lok Sabah TV and Rajya Sabah TV channels and rechristen the merged entity as ‘Sansad TV’, which will be telecast in both HDTV and SDTV formats as Sansad TV-HD and Sansad TV-SD.

The teleport facility of Sansad TV is presently capable of uplinking only one channel in SDTV format. It is being modernized and upgraded to carry one SDTV and one HDTV signals for distribution to Cable and Satellite MSOs. The upgradation and modernization of the teleport is likely to take six months of time.

As Sansad TV is not in a position to uplink HDTV signals in C-Band till the upgradation work of its teleport facility is completed, Prasar Bharati will help uplinking of Sansad TV HDTV signals.

Sansad TV will provide such archival contents of LSTV, RSTV, Sansad TV as desired by the Prasar Bharati for Production, telecast and broadcast on their platforms including digital platforms on gratis.
