DIRECTV, a digital multichannel television service provider, has selected Pinnacle Systems' DekoCast to drive the on-air visuals for the NFL Sunday Ticket Enhanced Games.

DekoCast enables DIRECTV to provide football fans with an unprecedented level of on-screen information, including scores and stats from other games, while they watch their favorite games from around the country.

One of DIRECTV's biggest challenges was to use its screen real estate in a way that would satisfy demand for up-to-the-minute detail from throughout the NFL.

DIRECTV worked in conjunction with Pinnacle's engineers to develop a custom application that enables DekoCast to harvest the live NFL data stream from every game simultaneously.

DekoCast then turns that data into real-time updates that play out to air.
