Apart from the broadcast vertical, BECIL has forayed into the areas of construction of radio towers, repair and maintenance, e-classroom, providing screens to hospitals or schools, streaming of videos, and community radio. This is how we are expanding into various areas with technological solutions attached to broadcasting work frame, says George Kuruvilla, Chairman & Managing Director, Broadcast Engineering Consultants India Limited (BECIL) in conversation with Souvik Goswami of Elets News Network (ENN).
What role do you foresee for BECIL in India’s digital transformation process?
BECIL is into the broadcast engineering domain. We look after the television and the radio production. We also look at the transmission of TV, radio and satellite and cable television. Whatever we are doing has a lot of synergy with the telecom and the IT. We have entered telecommunication, last-mile connectivity, fibre connectivity and ICT-based e-governance projects. In due course, we also realised that in many locations Radio Frequency (RF) can be used to connect one place to another. I also find BECIL getting involved in the fibre technology whereby we can use the power of networking, power of radio frequency, the coding and the inscriptions technique. The storage is becoming smarter with the introduction of technology. We realised that every State government and the institution will require data storage. They will require a proper mechanism to maintain the records, dynamic websites, management information system, payment gateways. The e-governance is going to overtake everything. In all these areas, BECIL fits in. We can handle end-to-end solutions of all these areas.
