The Electra X2 uses coding to improve video quality while integrating with ProStream, allowing Sun to increase bandwidth efficiency. The ProStream processor maximizes the saving of transponders, admitting up to 100 statmux services per platform. The entire Sun system workflow is IP-based and controlled by Harmonic's NMX network management system.

"Sun Direct plans to deploy additional HD STBs this year, and Harmonic is leading the way in helping the operator capitalize on the highest associated subscription rates, primarily choosing Harmonic for its excellent coding efficiency, pristine video quality and our long-term and continued implementation support, "said Tony Berthaud, vice president of sales at Harmonic APAC.
