It accommodates up to 14 different modules, which offers optimum channel processing for up to 14 analogue and 28 digital channels.

Apart from being introduced to a range of WISI products, the audiences were also exposed to 3 different HDTV designs with some ground understanding on the required equipment list. The audiences were encouraged to raise questions throughout and were also given the opportunity to be in contact with products. According to Mr. Vijay, the main presenter of the seminar, “They were very responsive with many questions being thrown at us, which made the entire seminar very interactive. I’m glad they did as they could now walk out being more equipped in knowledge, which allows them to be more prepared for the migration to digital.”
