Harris to Demo ‘One’ and Much More at IBC2008

Harris Corp. will show the latest developments in the Harris One integrated technology approach at IBC2008. The company will address file-based workflows, 3 Gbps infrastructure and multiplatform delivery with solutions that enable broadcasters to move content and information seamlessly among products, systems and facilities.

Products will include the European debut of the new ADC-1000 and D-Series DSX automation systems—next-generation products that feature tools for advanced digital file sharing and multiplatform support.

Harris will also showcase tight integration among Harris automation systems and Comperio and Invenio digital asset management systems, enterprise management and Harris business systems.

Harris will show new media/VOD sales tool prototypes for the Landmark air-time sales solution that enable the handling of multimode, nonlinear ad sales, as well as nonlinear inventory with Vision scheduling. Also at the conference, will be a new version of the Broadcast Master scheduling and sales suite, offering major advances to better support sales bookings for growing television markets

In the server department, Harris will introduce Nexio AMP 2.0, the latest version of its media platform, which supports four HD channels (including two ingest channels) and runs the first software-enabled Nexio AMP media applications, including integrated ADC automation, channel branding, audio track manipulation and multiviewer I/O monitoring.

Visitors to the Harris stand will also get an early view of the new Nexio browse system, which includes support for in-server, low-res proxy generation and InstantOnline III, an offline render farm for conforming low-res and hi-res EDLs. There will also be a demo of the full NewsForce HD/SD news workflow, showcasing transparent HD/SD operations and a range of editors.

To get all that content on the air, Harris is launching what it calls the industry’s most power-dense, solid-state, liquid-cooled UHF TV transmitter, with digital power levels up to 18.9 kW COFDM and analog levels up to 62.8 kW. Harris will also launch an air-cooled transmitter that leverages the liquid-cooled architecture and platform and provides a low-cost UHF transmission solution with power levels from 10 W to 2 kW.

Harris will be at Stand 7.G20.
