Working for Imagina US, wTVision and Unitecnic provided an end-to-end solution for two new DirecTV Latin America TV Channels (OnDirecTV HD - Showcase and OnDirecTV SD - 999).
wTVision customized its modular product ChannelMaker to integrate with several other broadcast technologies with the main goal of developing a new architectural structure of two Channels, one in SD and one in HD.
The structure of this project included the ChannelMaker’s integration with:
- Grass Valley video server
- Miranda Imagestore Master Control Mixer
- Snell Cygnus Video Router
- ForeTV Traffic System
This architecture includes redundancy of the ChannelMaker Playout for both SD and HD Channels.
ChannelMaker easily manages complex channel architectures ranging from simple main/backup configurations to multi-channel, multi-station, multivendor and multi-location solutions.
DirecTV is one of the world's leading providers of digital television entertainment services, achieving more than 32 million customers in the U.S. and Latin America.
