Signal failure led to LS TV blackout, says report


Failure to receive signals from the nine automatic cameras in Lok Sabha resulted in the blackout of Lok Sabha TV during the crucial proceedings for passage of the Telangana bill, a probe has found.

The probe was ordered into the 90-minute blackout on Lok Sabha TV yesterday when the controversial bill was taken up.

As soon as the Telangana Bill was taken up for consideration at around 3 pm on Tuesday and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde started speaking, the live telecast had stopped, perhaps for the first time.

CEO of Lok Sabha TV Rajiv Mishra told PTI on Wednesday that the problem occurred as the signals from the cameras were not received in the mixer room located in Room No 50 in Parliament House from where the channel gets live feed.

He said while the audio feed was coming, the video feed was not.
