What is "MDU

The Government of India has passed the bill for Mandatory Digitization. According to this bill Digitization is Mandatory in the country according to the following timeline

  1. Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata & Chennai by 31st October 2012
  2. City with more than 1 mn population by 31st march 2013
  3. All urban areas by 30th Sept 2014
  4. Entire Country by 31st Dec 2014

An Ordinance has been passed by the Govt. of India on the mandatory digitization of the Cable Services. According to this amendment made in the section 9 of the Cable Television Networks (Regulation) Amendment Ordinance, 1995, the I&B ministry will make Digital Addressable System mandatory. Each and every household in the Metros will have to move from analog cable. TV viewers in India would definitely go for a DTH Connection as it has more features. However a DTH Connection comes with a Reflector commonly known as a dish. Every member in the Society having a DTH connection would mean multiple Reflectors on the terrace or in the premises. This spoils the look of the society.

The Multi Dwelling Unit (MDU) is a customized solution for connecting multiple houses within the same multi storied building with a single Antenna/Reflector to receive Direct-to-Home services . MDU is a centralized network consisting of multi switches and amplifiers for distributing the signal received by one or two Dish antennas. The Dish Antenna captures the signals and transmits them through multi switches on to the individual STBs in the subscriber's flat. The setup is customized depending on the number of connections and the connectivity structure of the building.

Common Antenna or Single Antenna is a customized solution for connecting multiple houses within the same multi storied building with a single Antenna to receive Direct-to-Home services. Households do not need to install individual antennas, as their individual set-top boxes will be linked to a large common antenna installed on the terrace of the multi storied building which is connected to TV sets in multiple homes in the building through a DTH cable
The size of individual DTH connection antenna is 60 cm; Common antennas come in size, 90 cm. This service is applicable to high rise buildings and corporate.
A single antenna keeps the terrace beautiful and Clutter free thus helping in maintaining the surroundings. Several antennas would mean several wires, which in effect leads to a lot of disorder. A single antenna would enable you to receive stronger signals which will mean greater clarity while viewing.
