Grass Valley helps drive APN India’s 24/7 news channel
Access Press News (APN), a broadcaster located in the Delhi region in India, is powering its 24/7 news channel with a lineup of solutions from Grass Valley. The broadcaster’s purchase includes six LDX Flex advanced imaging cameras, a K2 Summit media server, EDIUS editing software, Densité signal management system and a mixed-format routing switcher.
APN India’s news channel is broadcast entirely in Hindi and reaches millions of viewers across the Delhi region, delivering breaking news, weather and business affairs. “Managing a 24/7 news channel is a paramount responsibility. When news breaks in the Delhi region, we want to be the first to air it, so it’s crucial for us to have the most up-to-date newsroom technologies in place,” commented R.S. Chauhan, group head BO&E, APN India.
“We’ve been a Grass Valley customer for many years, having worked with their LDK range of cameras. We’re always impressed with their knowledge of the industry and customer service, so when the time came to upgrade our cameras, the LDX Flex was the natural choice for us. The LDX Flex gives us stunning image quality at a price that meets our budget.”
“We’re happy that APN has the best tools in the business to manage their newsroom operations and bring news to their viewers around the clock,” commented Andrew Thornton, vice president, Asia Pacific, Grass Valley. “The broadcast market in India is a key target market for us, and deals like this further solidify our commitment to the region.”
