Artifex.News started its journey in 1992. Founder proprietor Janab Mohammad Ariff launched Artifex Engineering Works for the manufacture of Satellite Master Antenna Television (SMATV) and Hotel Engineering equipment and spare parts.
Artifex.News has a humble beginning as Artifex Engineering Works in 1992. In 1994 it was incorporated as a public limited company. We worked under the banner of Artifex Engineering in October 2019.
Artifex.News was launched as a separate entity in November 2019.
We were instrumental in the launch of Satellite Television Asia Region (STAR TV) in India. Hotel distributorship of Star Movies and Zee Cinema in India was one of the main roles of Artifex.
On the occasion of the funeral of Saint Mother Teresa’s Funeral, we ventured into the news business. We provided the full technical and logistical support for the live transmission of the funeral for BBC, EBU, and ZDF German Television in 1997. We worked under Shri Yogesh Joshi, Senior Location Engineer of BBC, Mr. Evan de Wolf, Senior Journalist of EBU, and Ms. Joyce Hannah of ZDF German Television.
Our achievements include the launch of the first Digital FM Satellite Radio Station in India in 1995 and Darpan Traditional Fashion Shows, etc.
We have our own media pre-production and post-production facilities. Artifex Studios, Artifex Media Productions, and Audio Visual Studio are all our subsidiaries.
We have recently launched Radio Artifex News and our YouTube Channel. Our Youtube Channel covered the recent West Bengal Legislative Assembly Elections Live.
