Chennai-based News7 Tamil Television is one of the most-watched and respected news channels in the Tamil speaking community. Known for their in-depth coverage of both local and international news as well as the high quality of production, the 24-hour news program ranks as one of the top – if not the top – news channel in India.
The availability of content broadcasted in high definition along with the increase in demand for higher quality content has led to a shift in India’s infotainment scene. Fitting the broadcast studio with the latest state-of-the-art equipment for its video wall is a natural next-step for News7. However, the challenge lies in finding the perfect balance in form and function.
After weeks spent exploring various display options including ultra-narrow bezel LCD flat panels and rear-projection cubes, the decision to deploy Christie® MicroTiles® was made when Senthil Velavan, Head of Operations at News7, chanced upon Falcon Technologies Pvt. Ltd.’s booth at the Broadcast & Media Technology 2014 tradeshow in Chennai.
