The United States Navy has commissioned a new Sundance Digital Titan automation system to be used in connection with distribution of programming to some 260 Navy, Coast Guard and Military Sealift Command ships around the world.

The Navy’s “Direct to Sailor” (DTS) TV operation is headquartered in Riverside, Calif. and distributes multiple channels of programming via satellite. Before the complete Titan system went on line, the command used a smaller Titan system which has been made available for backup purposes during maintenance of the larger system.

“DTS-TV’s state-of-the-art five-channel automation system helps the Navy bring a touch of home to our sailors and marines serving worldwide, by providing a mix of news, sports and entertainment programming,” said Steve Krant, Sundance Digital’s vice president of Sales and Marketing.

The Navy Media Center used Titan technology to replace a legacy system as part of an overall transmission system modernization program.

Sundance Digital is now a part of Avid Technology Inc. and is headquartered in the metropolitan Dallas, Texas area.
