Harris wins contract for new Danish broadcast center

August 17, 2005

Harris will supply Danish Broadcasting (DR) with its H-Class broadcast presentation manager (BPM) play-out automation application. The H-Class system will be installed in DR's new television and radio broadcast center in Ørestad Nord, near Copenhagen.

DR is moving from 12 sites around Copenhagen to a centralized, purpose-built center called DR Byen. The construction of the new broadcast center is one of the largest single projects undertaken by a Danish national broadcaster in the last 20 years.

DR has purchased the company’s BPM playout automation application and Schedule Manager. Harris, Mediagenix, Dalet and Omneon will provide a fully automated, software-controlled production system, which will be linked to a redundant server and playout system.

German systems integrator BFE is managing the design, installation and integration. The four-phase construction of the new broadcast center is expected to be complete in 2006.
