Tobias Grimm (e-tobi.net) wrote that in the latest c't (13/2008, p.
187). He says that some TV stations use VDR to save their program for 90
days. Apparently they are required by German (?) law to do this. He also
mentions xeatre.tv, a system which is based on VDR. On
<http://www.xeatre.tv/cms/index.php?page=referenzen> you can see some of
their clients, including one TV station and two production companies.
