Harris to modernize VOA’s International Broadcasting Bureau
Broadcast systems integrator Communications Engineering (CEI) has chosen Harris to help modernize the International Broadcasting Bureau's Voice of America (VOA) facility in Washington, D.C. CEI is designing the facility's new broadcast system.
Under the contract, Harris will provide master control, routing and quality control systems — including 12 channels of master control playback controlled by a Harris automation system; extensive ingest and record list control; NEO and 6800+ modular series frame synchronizers and converters; and Videotek VTM-3100 test monitors.
The VOA broadcasts news and information to more than 115 million people weekly through television, radio and the Internet as well as to a growing worldwide network of more than 1200 local affiliate stations. The International Broadcasting Bureau provides administrative and engineering support for U.S. government-funded, nonmilitary and international broadcast services, such as the VOA.
