Fox Taps Terayon For HD Delivery

Fox Broadcasting, which last year announced plans to deliver at least half of this fall's prime-time schedule in HD, selected Terayon BP 5100 broadcast platform to power its HD system. Terayon is working closely on the project with Thomson, the network's primary technology partner. BP 5100 enables the integration of HD programming at its affiliated stations and localized on-screen branding through services, such as localized HD logo insertion, stream quality management and digital-to-digital splicing between local and network HD content. Terayon's vice president and general manager says the platform "addresses unique needs in the broadcast market as networks move to HD."
