A Smart TV is a television that goes beyond traditional broadcast and cable programming by offering built-in internet connectivity and interactive features. These intelligent devices allow users to access various online content and services directly on the TV screen, often through pre-installed apps or web browsers. Smart TVs enable users to stream movies and TV shows, access social media, play games and even control other smart devices within their home, such as lights or thermostats.
They offer the convenience of on-demand content and are often compatible with popular streaming platforms like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hotstar. As an integral part of the modern connected home, Smart TVs have revolutionized the way we consume and interact with digital media, providing a seamless and interactive entertainment experience while eliminating the need for additional external devices like streaming boxes or game consoles.
Note: Manufacturers of Smart TVs are required to obtain the mandatory WPC ETA Approval to launch their products in the Indian market.
WPC ETA Approval is a mandatory certification for Smart TVs in India. The WPC certification process ensures that Smart TVs meet specific technical standards related to wireless communication, radio frequency emissions and electromagnetic compatibility. By obtaining WPC ETA approval, manufacturers and importers demonstrate their commitment to providing high-quality and compliant Smart TVs to the Indian market, ensuring that consumers have access to advanced and reliable television technology while adhering to regulatory and technical requirements.
Wireless Planning and Coordination (WPC) - Equipment Type Approval (ETA) is a regulatory process in India that ensures telecommunications and wireless devices comply with technical standards and legal requirements. This approval is granted by the WPC Wing, established in 1952, a part of India's Department of Telecommunications (DoT). It is essential for manufacturers and importers of wireless equipment, such as mobile phones, routers, and radio-frequency devices. It certifies that these products meet the necessary technical specifications and do not interfere with other wireless services. WPC ETA Approval plays a pivotal role in maintaining efficient and interference-free wireless communication networks, promoting technological advancement, and ensuring the safety and reliability of wireless devices in the Indian market. Manufacturers must obtain this approval to sell and operate their wireless products in India legally.
