DMS enables over-the-air (OTA) in-band control of content distribution network elements, including ProView 7000 receivers and ProStream 1000 stream processors. The new DMS solution is well suited for a variety of applications, including content distribution to operators, affiliates and service providers, as well as distribution for digital terrestrial TV services.
