Omnibus iTX to power DIRECTV HD CONUS Project

Omnibus Systems is in the final stages of deployment of its largest iTX installation for DIRECTV, a leading satellite TV service provider in the United States. The Omnibus iTX software-based transmission solution will be used for DIRECTV's HD CONUS expansion project, which will enable DIRECTV to initially deliver up to 100 national channels by year’s end.

This project involves 80 fully redundant HD playout channels and includes HD ingest and advanced integration with DIRECTV's business and control systems. The solution makes extensive use of the new Dolby Digital surround-sound capabilities available in iTX and is deployed entirely on industry-standard HP ProLiant and BladeSystem servers. Omnibus has teamed with Accenture for professional services on the HD CONUS project.
