Kozhikode, May 5 (UNI) The Kerala Cable TV Operators Association (KCTOA) has decided to go digital for ensuring better picture quality.

The Kerala Cable Communications Limited (KCCL), a public limited firm, will implement the ambitious scheme of offering 200 digital channels in the first phase, Company Chairman N H Anwar and Director K Govindan said here today.

The Rs five-core project, funded by cable TV operators, aims at providing digital transmission by connecting all the districts by underground cables through a headend being installed at Ernakulam.

Underground optic fibre cables would be used to upling important tranmission centres in the second phase, they said. The technology offered subscribers the option to select set top boxes (STBs) of their choice.

Prior to going digital, the promoters will launch Kerala Vision, a separate cable channel, which will go digital later.
