Sat-based triple-play tech platform

DirecTV and Thomson are launching the first satellite TV distribution system for multi-dwelling units (MDU) to use IP technology for the delivery of TV services. The DirecTV MFH3 system is designed to solve satellite distribution issues in dense living spaces such as apartment complexes, condominiums and master planned communities. It enables the delivery of all DirecTV satellite TV programming and services using existing in-building and distribution wiring, lowering the cost of installation.


As an IP distribution platform, service providers that have won the rights to deliver communications services to MDUs or planned communities can easily integrate the MFH3 with their existing voice and Internet services and deliver triple-play services over a single infrastructure.
