Harris to unveil NewsForce

February 16, 2007

Harris has announced NewsForce, a complete, file-based newsroom solution built upon the NEXIO XS shared storage server architecture.

Taking advantage of the native speed and flexibility of a NEXIO XS storage area network (SAN), NewsForce will include a new generation of Harris editors optimized for fast news cutting, voicing and airing.

A key element of NewsForce is the new Harris family of on-SAN news editors, all sharing the Velocity user interface. They include VelocityFX, VelocityPX and VelocityXNG.

The VelocityFX high-resolution news editing system features Harris Media ID immediate-playout technology, as well as full integration with newsroom computer systems such as AP's ENPS and Avid iNEWS.

VelocityPX is a proxy editor that runs on standard desktop PCs and uses Harris InstantOnline technology to link sequences that are ready for air to corresponding high-resolution material on the SAN.

VelocityXNG is a software laptop editor for the field and newsroom, which connects to the SAN via GigE.
