DirecTV buys Avid MediaStream servers

DirecTV has installed four Avid MediaStream systems, valued at about $1 million, that support 64 decoder channels with more than 25TB of dedicated RAID storage.

The new systems will enable DirecTV to update and expand its SD capabilities and build a foundation for future HD services as well, the company said.

Avid’s MediaStream systems come standard with native HD and native SD storage and playout capabilities, as well as built-in up/downconversion. When current SD broadcasters are ready to transition to HD delivery, there is no need to purchase new hardware systems.

MediaStream servers can be configured from just a few channels using a standalone server to up to 100 simultaneous channels using highly reliable storage area network technology.
