American Forces Network deploys Harris communications system

Harris has installed an HD broadcast communications system for the American Forces Network Broadcast Center (AFN-BC) at the Defense Media Center in Riverside, CA.

Composed of broadcast routing, automation, video server, core processing and asset management products, the Harris ONE system brings together integrated, solutions for organizations upgrading to HD services.

AFN delivers news, information and entertainment to almost 1 million troops worldwide outside the United States. Designed by systems integrator Snader and Associates, the Harris system employs 18 NEXIO AMP servers, which enable AFN to prepare for air and play out up to 12 standard-definition programs daily.

Two Harris/Isilon Systems NXIQ clustered storage silos provide near-line storage for AFN content. To maximize speed and consistency in the quality assurance process, the Videotek QuiC media analysis server analyzes compressed digital content during ingest and enables problems to be corrected on the fly with no operator intervention.
