Harris and Roundbox Do Mobile DTV OEM

CINCINNATI: Harris will be folding broadcasting software from Roundbox into its mobile DTV system, the companies said. Roundbox, a Florham, N.J. maker of mobile broadcast software said it had signed an original manufacturer agreement with Harris (NYSE: HRS), which will integrate the Roundbox product into the Harris ATSC Mobile DTV broadcast system. Commercial was described as becoming available in “mid-March.”

Roundbox software provides delivery management of ATSC information, including an on-screen programming guide. It also handles non-real time data delivery to mobile DTV devices. The company secured a $20 million Series C round of financing in December led by Montagu Newhall Associates, with additional contributions from existing investors Core Capital Partners, Polaris Venture Partners and RRE Ventures. ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Corp. also participated. Silicon Valley Bank provided venture debt financing.

I live in Dallas , Tx. I am using two different out door aaetnnns. We are very flat here, but my single story home is located between two 2 story homes. I also have large trees possibly blocking reception of some channels. When the wind blows or it rains I lose some channels completely or they go off and on. Some of these channels are major network channels. There does not seem to be a particular logic pattern as to which of the channels have reception problems. One of my aaetnnns is old and not in good shape, but certainly a lot better than rabbit ears. I tried rabbit ears for a while. They were very frustrating. My reception was better with analog.In all fairness, I might need new antenna wires. But with analog I did not need to think about paying extra money for new wires and having to go on on the roof and into a hot or cold attic and pulling new wires and maybe drilling installation holes for better reception. OK, hire someone to do it. Yeh sure. Thanks a lot.Well maybe it is just a sign of the times. It is progrss. Well the Feds gave coupons for the conversion boxes. So why are they not thinking things through to a satisfactory endpoint. Maybe they will send someone out to cut down beautiful trees and pass a law to not let the wind blow and prohibit rain during TV viewing times.
