“It has a big advantage to us, allowing our guests to see their own feedback video as well as the guest/anchor available in the studio,” said Sundarapandian Rajakannu, Technical-Head at New Gen Media Corporation. “This facility is not available in DSNG broadcasting and cellular broadcasting technologies. It allows us to introduce a guest from anywhere in the world for a debate show or interview.”
