Doordarshan partners SBI to launch payment gateway for ad agencies

In a pioneering move, Doordarshan today became the first Indian television channel to introduce an online payment gateway for advertisers that will ensure greater efficiency and transparency.

Under the system, each advertiser dealing with Doordarshan will have its own page through which it will not only be able to know its status of payments but also make these payments. 

Although set up in collaboration with the State Bank of India, the system permits advertisers to transfer the payments through their own banks using the gateway. 

Doordarshan automated its commercial operations for DD National channel in the Phase-I in January this year. The process for DD's other channels is under implementation. The move has helped integrate various steps involved in executing commercials from booking to scheduling and billing. 

However, the last step of payment receipt is still manual. Doordarshan has integrated the payment gateway and with its traffic and billing system would facilitate all clients and agencies to make online payment by directly going to Doordarshan’s portal from the place of their convenience at any time of the day. 

The new system was inaugurated today by Prasar Bharati member (finance) Rajeev Singh in the presence of DD director general C Lalrosanga, Engineer-in-Chief CBS Maurya, ADG (CRD) Mukesh Sharma, ADG (commercial & sales) Inderjeet Kaur, ADG Deepa Chandra, ADG PA Naidu, and DDG (commercial) CK Jain, who also explained the system along with State Bank of India main branch chief manager (e-banking) DN Sharma.

Jain said the first phase would cover Delhi and Mumbai, whereas the second phase will cover other centres. It will also facilitate an Online Deal and Release Order Booking System (ODROBS).

Sharma said the multi-operating payment system could be used for sending payments from other banks as well. Each ad agency would have a name and password to log on through the DD portal and then go on with checking status or making payments. This facilitates collection of fees from ad agencies and is completely automated with options of NEFT, RTGS, and draft with provision for updating etc. 

Doordarshan has so far been facing huge problem of reconciling its accounts because of entire manual operations, which leave a lot of agencies and clients dissatisfied. This has also resulted in several disputes and also in arbitrations with agencies. 

It was pointed out on the occasion that Prasar Bharati CEO Jawhar Sircar has also been emphasising on use of IT in both Doordarshan and AIR for bringing efficiency into the system.

AIR PANAJI GOA से ''मोजो सूर्या उडीतोलो'' का प्रसारण .....

सुखी और खुशहाल जीवन के बीच पति—पत्नी दोनो को जब भयावह बीमारी एडस् होने की जानकारी मिलती है परिवार पर कैसा वज्रपात होता है और गर्भ में पल रहे बच्चे पर क्या मानसिक अहसासात और असर होता है इसका मार्मिक वर्णन है ''माय सन विल राईज''.
श्रोताओं की विशेष मांग पर सुश्री सिंथिया रेगो कार्यक्रम अधिकारी द्वारा प्रोड्यूस किए गए ''मोजो सूर्या उडीतोलो'' '(माय सन विल राईज ) का पुन: प्रसारण आकाशवाणी पणजी से किया जाएगा । विदित हो कि वर्ष 2006 में आकाशवाणी एन्युअल एवार्ड की इनोवेटिव केटेगरी में इसे प्रथम पुरस्कार प्राप्त हुआ था । 
The story revolves around a couple whose joy of being first time parents is shattered by the knowledge that the husband is suffering from AIDS and later the mother is also tested HIV positive. In this story an attempt has been made to bring forth the feelings of the "Foetus" or "the child in the womb" the pain and trauma that the foetus undergoes with the realization that its world is crumbling is focussed upon, thus portraying that right from conception the foetus feel all the positive and negative thoughts and happenings around, thus causing upheavals in the tiny life anxious to see the light of the day.

TECHNOLOGY UPDATES

How to send a fax to multiple recipients

In the world of today you need to send information quickly to your business partners. It is a necessity and if you are tardy could cost you money, significant amounts too. Still, you are fortunate to live in this time. Now, with all the technology at your disposal you can communicate instantaneously with several persons. Even the fax machine, which by most standards is one of the older technologies, will allow you to send sensitive documents to multiple clients at the same time. How is this done?

First you must know that this process of sending a fax to several clients at the same time is called fax broadcasting. So you would scan a single document once and then be able to broadcast the document to a number of your business partners at the same time. Though it can be done by special fax machines it can also be accomplished through other methods, such as fax server technology.

Fax servers

These are machines that run software that transforms incoming digital data to analogue signals so that they can be transmitted across phone lines. If you are not well versed in IT, these machines can be described as the combination of a fax machine and a computer. It stores and processes the incoming data in digital signals like any regular computer but when it comes times to send out the signal it changes it to a form that can be transmitted over the telephone lines. In much the same way as you would have a server to connect multiple computers is the same way you would have a server that is a central processor for the faxing capabilities.

The fax broadcasting server is the gateway between the computer and the telephone network that uses analogue signals. The technology is defined in computing terms by the name Fax over Internet Protocol or FoIP.

With a fax server you can receive faxes by email and save faxes that have been sent or received. As with a regular fax machine you can track or trace a fax. So you are able to confirm date and time sent and received. Since it is a server, you will be able to integrate the fax broadcasting server with the other servers in the office. In addition the server will give you the ability to automatically route your faxes which is a feature you won’t have with your single fax machine. This will save the business money and time.

Of course, if you decide to install a fax broadcasting server for its added capabilities you will need to make a few changes in your IT department. You may have to hire persons with skills to administer a fax server or train the staff you already have. If your fax broadcasting machine doesn’t have the capability to do fax broadcasting and you are not willing to buy a new fax machine or get a fax server then you can have these services done by third parties.

AIR's talent hunt for tribal music gets overwhelming

A unique talent hunt aimed at showcasing authentic tribal music, launched recently by the All India Radio (AIR), has received an "overwhelming" response with aspirants ranging from army jawans to housewives and even paanwallahs flooding the broadcaster with entries.

Officials said the public broadcaster launched a first- of-its-kind talent hunt "Adi Swar" for tribal music where the rules of entry were kept comparatively easy.

Participants, whether solo or in a group, particularly from the tribal communities, were asked to upload and mail an audio clipping or send an audio CD of their singing performances without any restrictions imposed on age, sex or economic status.

"The aim was to bring forward the latent talent and it seems to have done that in a big way," an official said, adding, the duty room of the National Channel of AIR is abuzz with telephone calls from every nook and corner of the country.

"Two officers are manning the telephone lines round-the- clock to respond to queries pouring not only from the tribal belts but also from far-flung areas of Maharashtra, Tripura and Nagaland," an official said.
Citing an instance, the official added that an army jawan, who had won trophies during school days called up from Jammu to confirm the last date to submit the entries.
A housewife from Ranchi, who was initially apprehensive as she rarely got time to perform 'riyaz' due to household chores, is now again focusing on her talent.

There were a number of requests from Imphal for extending the timeline for submission of entries due to indefinite curfew, the official said. A 'paanwallah' in Varanasi too called up the broadcaster to check whether he is eligible to render a solo for the competition.
The talent hunt has received enthusiastic response from members of tribal communities from states like Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Arunanchal Pradesh and Rajasthan among others, the official said.

"As the National Broadcaster of the country, AIR is organizing this contest as part of the mission of Prasar Bharati to promote tribals' cultural heritage," said Deputy Director General, National Channel, AIR, B D Mohanty.

NES AIR Shillong interviews Director IIM Shillong

Last day with Dr Kalam....



...............

Third, was an experience from the beauty of his humility. We were in a convoy of 6-7 cars. Dr. Kalam and I were in the second car. Ahead us was an open gypsy with three soldiers in it. Two of them were sitting on either side and one lean guy was standing atop, holding his gun. One hour into the road journey, Dr. Kalam said, “Why is he standing? He will get tired. This is like punishment. Can you ask a wireless message to given that he may sit?” I had to convince him, he has been probably instructed to keep standing for better security. He did not relent. We tried radio messaging, that did not work. For the next 1.5 hours of the journey, he reminded me thrice to see if I can hand signal him to sit down. Finally, realizing there is little we can do – he told me, “I want to meet him and thank him.” Later, when we landed in IIM-Shillong, I went inquiring through security people and got hold of the standing guy. I took him inside and Dr. Kalam greeted him. He shook his hand, said “Thank you buddy. Are you tired? Would you like something to eat? I am sorry you had to stand so long because of me”. The young lean guard, draped in black cloth, was surprised at the treatment. He lost words, just said, “Sir, aapke liye to 6 ghante bhi khade rahenge.”........................

President Kalam didn't own TV, listened to All India Radio



                                                               
Sir Never Had a TV at Home, Recalls Secretary of 24 Years he would listen to the radio, mostly news on All India Radio

Harry Sheridon (53), who had been with Dr APJ Abdul Kalam as his personal secretary for the past 24 years, can't believe the former President is no more.

Sheridon worked with Kalam since the latter joined the Defence Research and Development Organisation as Scientific Advisor to the Defence Minister and was later Secretary, Department of Research and Development.

The secretary recalled that Kalam never had a television at home and would start his day between 6.30 am and 7 am and stay awake until 2 am. He would listen to the radio, mostly news on All India Radio, and would personally check his emails on a daily basis. He would be invited for some seminar or the other every week. Kalam's personal physician would visit him regularly, but he had not complained of any ailments. His last book titled 'Target 3 Billion' co-authored by Srijan Pal Singh, was published in December 2011.

"APJ Kalam sir was a very, very good human being in all aspects. The country needs more leaders like him" was all Sheridon could say in conclusion.
