PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 02/18/13 -- Further reinforcement of the cooperation between Tata
Sky and Technicolor
The India leading satellite operator renews its contract for
Technicolor
MediaPlay STBs



Technicolor (Euronext Paris : TCH) today
announced that it has won two extension contracts from Tata Sky, India's
leading
satellite operator with over 8 million subscribers. Pursuant to the
long
standing relationship between both parties and the commercial success
of its
high-definition (HD) and standard-definition (SD) digital TV offerings,
Tata Sky
has granted Technicolor, until mid 2015, extension of the initial
contracts for
the STBs already delivered over the past years:





* The HD-enabled zapper (MediaPlay DSI715) is optimized to deliver all
essential features at low cost while enabling future-proof services
such as
video on demand.



* The SD satellite zapper (MediaPlay DSI309) has been tailored to Tata
Sky's
needs and enables MPEG-4 decoding in a compact design.



Michel Rahier, President of Technicolor's Connected Home division, said
"We are
very proud to support the commercial success of Tata Sky in its
digital
television services. As a long standing partner of Tata Sky, the renewal
of the
previous contracts awarded up to two years ago proves us that we have been
able
to build a strong relationship thanks to the high quality of our products".



"Technicolor's solutions have met our expectations in terms of
reliability
because we want to guarantee a trouble free experience for our customers.
They
also help meet our Total Cost of Ownership requirement, which is key
for an
operator with a large subscriber base like ours. The latest agreements
mark the
continuation of our trusted relationship with Technicolor" added Harit
Nagpal,
Managing Director & CEO of Tata Sky.



Deliveries of these set-top boxes are scheduled from 3Q 2013 to 2Q 2015,
while
Technicolor will continue providing locally-based after-sales support to
Tata
Sky.



Technicolor's range of MediaPlay set-top boxes provide a wide array of
services
encompassing advanced functions such as multi-room and multi-screen, on
demand,
wireless streaming or Over-The-Top services. Truly committed to
ecodesign,
Technicolor puts environmental issues at the heart of the design process
of all
products within a complete product lifecycle approach.
