Documentary Channel to Ride on Firestone

Firestone Communications Inc. will provide full master-control and satellite-uplink services for The Documentary Channel.

The network will use FCI's “Rushworks” system to optimize playback and streamline the broadcast process.

Firestone’s Communications Operations Center is a Federal Communications Commission-licensed earth station offering fully automated digital-playback and uplink and satellite services, the company said, adding that its C-band digital-satellite uplink transmits multiple signals and multiple stereo audio channels in a “PowerVue Plus” format.

Documentary Channel airs independent documentary films on a commercially uninterrupted, full-time basis.
