Harris Transmitter Used in Taiwan MediaFLO Mobile TV Trials
Harris has announced that its Atlas mobile transmitter and Apex FLO exciter are being used in tests of Qualcomm’s MediaFLO service in Taiwan. The tests are being conducted by China Network Systems (CNS) and Taiwan Television Enterprise Ltd. (TTV). Testing started this spring and is expected to continue through the summer.

The test trials feature two live channels provided by TTV and four from CNS, and are designed to study and evaluate the performance of Qualcomm’s MediaFLO technology. Mike Coad, vice president of partner relations for Qualcomm MediaFLO technologies, said, "Qualcomm is pleased to work with Harris transmission equipment for the Taiwan MediaFLO trial. Harris Corporation’s experience in broadcast-quality, live TV transmission -- including multiple international mobile TV trials -- makes the company an excellent choice to support our Taiwan trial."

Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications, said, "Harris has taken a market-driven approach to mobile TV, and strongly favors supporting multiple mobile broadcast technologies to help drive revenue opportunities for our allies, and a wide selection of service offerings for end users."

"4K and IP broadcast (plus a combination of the two) will be my main interest."
