DirecTV Future-Proofs With Avid
Avid Technology Inc. said this week that DirecTV Inc. has installed about $1 million of Avid MediaStream systems purchased in March 2006.

The investment, which will enable DirecTV--which has more than 15.5 million customers--to update and expand its standard-definition capabilities and build a foundation for future high-definition services, includes four MediaStream servers with a total of 64 decoder channels and more than 25 TB of dedicated RAID storage. The installation was completed in August.

"MediaStream has been at the core of DirecTV's playout operations for years and we knew we could count on its reliability and efficiency as we planned to expand our broadcast operations," said Donald L. Jones, vice president and general manager of Broadcast Operations at DirecTV Inc. "The HD enhancements that Avid has made to the system will also serve us well as we continue to expand our HD programming."
