Harris Introduces NewsForce

Harris Corp. will roll out its NewsForce HD/SD newsroom solution at NAB.

Built on the Harris Nexio shared storage server architecture, NewsForce is a comprehensive, HD/SD news environment that provides file-based newsroom workflow from field editing to delivery on-air. In combination with Harris’ MOS-enabled news editors and Inscriber graphics systems, the NewsForce infrastructure scales cleanly to accommodate current and future broadcast needs.

The NewsForce product line includes a family of editors optimized for quick edits and 24/7 live news production: NewsForce ES high-resolution news editor; NewsForce Desktop proxy editor that operates on a standard desktop PC; NewsForce XNG software-based laptop editor for the field and newsroom and the Velocity NX full-featured promotions/craft-style editor. All NewsForce editors rely on the Nexio storage area network (SAN) and provide seamless integration with AP’s ENPS, Avid’s iNEWS and other newsroom computer systems (NRCS) to streamline the end-to-end newsroom workflow.

NewsForce also features full integration with Apple Final Cut Pro, enabling editing directly onto the Nexio SAN—even during ingest—plus sharing of media and timelines with NewsForce and Final Cut Pro editors. Plug-ins for Final Cut Pro enable content and metadata searches on the Nexio SAN, browse viewing and shot selection, and MOS NRCS integration. This NewsForce integration allows edits to air directly from the SAN without waiting for rendering to finish.

Harris will be in Booth N2502.
