Harris Supports International Broadcasters at Games

"Harris is supporting the Beijing Summer Games by providing broadcasters with a wide range of equipment and support — from large systems sales, equipment rentals, and tailored service packages, to onsite setup assistance at the International Broadcast Center and local service throughout the event," said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications.

"Our Beijing warehouse is fully stocked to avoid time-consuming customs checks and ensure replacement parts get into the hands of our customers as quickly as possible. In addition, more than 40 Harris staff members at our Beijing Research and Service facilities stand ready to handle any support customers may require during this significant event," he said.

As Thorsteinson noted, Harris supplied a wide range of high-definition and standard-definition broadcast equipment to broadcasters from around the world during the Games, including signal processing, routing and multiviewers to servers, graphics and HD conversion equipment.

Among those using Harris equipment during the Games were the Japan Consortium; China Central Television (CCTV); Gearhouse Broadcast; Alfacam; and the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. (CBC).
