A Life Lived: Michael D. O'Hara, 1960-2007 Executive was a pioneer at Thomson Michael D. O'Hara changed the way Indianapolis looks. That's true, as well, for the entire United States and large parts of the world. Those small, gray satellite TV dishes on roofs and apartment balconies that snatch digitally encoded signals from a satellite -- he was largely responsible for their existence and for shaking up the cable TV industry. O'Hara led the Thomson Consumer Electronics team that developed those 18-inch dishes and the digital receiver for RCA's DirecTV Digital Satellite System. Introduced in 1994 in Jacksonville, Miss., to see how consumers would respond, it reigned as the most successful consumer electronics product in history until DVD players came along. Mr. O'Hara was 46 when he died of cancer Thursday at St. Vincent Hospital. Mr. O'Hara and his wife, Diane, attended the same grade school and high school in New Jersey but first dated in Mr. O'Hara's senior year at Montclair (N.J.) State University in 1982. They had been married 21 years. Mr. O'Hara joined Thomson in 1987, when GE was acquired. Indianapolis Star, IN, March 31, 2007.
