Raycom Standardizes 43 Stations on Harris Selenio
MELBOURNE, FLA., and DENVER: Raycom Media has selected the Harris Selenio media
convergence platform to eupgrade over-the-air digital broadcast signal encoding
services at 43 TV stations. The transition
will deliver new efficiencies for Raycom, including improved HD/SD signal quality,
higher channel capacity and stronger signal redundancy to maximize on-air reliability.
Selenio provides a hybrid of digital baseband video processing, compression and
IP capabilities within a single platform. Raycom Media will take advantage of that
flexibility by also using Selenio for A/V frame synchronization and 5.1 audio processing,
automatically upmixing 2.0 stereo signals to digital surround sound.
Harris said Raycom Media chose Selenio “based on its robust encoding performance,
upgrade-friendly design, and ability to perform multiple functions in a single platform,”
and “due to its long-term experience with the Harris NetVX encoding platform, which
will endure in standby mode at all stations for maximum signal redundancy.” Harris
said it would deploy the orders within 90 days.
