Harris Collaborates With Tech Leaders to Demonstrate Digital News Workflow
April 7, 2006
Harris Corp. recently joined forces with The Associated Press (AP), Sony Electronics and Sundance Digital to demonstrate its Leitch NEXIO server, as a part of an integrated digital news workflow and on-air, play-out management system.
The companies showcased the process in a joint road show across southern California that highlighted the open interoperability of each vendor's products as part of an end-to-end digital news system.
The demonstrations featured the Leitch NEXIO scalable server system for transmission and news environments, NewsFlash and NewsFlash Preditor nonlinear editing systems; Harris Inscriber character generator (CG) solutions; AP's broadcast news production system, ENPS; Sundance Digital's NewsLink for newsroom automation; and Sony's MFS-2000 production switcher.
Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications Division's Leitch Business Unit said the "tour was a chance to meet face-to-face with some of our key customers and demonstrate the practical benefits in an end-to-end newsroom solution."
