The broadcast communications division of Harris will display a live, end-to-end DVB-H broadcast demonstration at the Broadcast Asia 2005 convention in Singapore. The demo will include a multi-protocol encapsulator for data insertion from UDcast, a DVB-H Single Frequency Network (SFN) adapter from Harris and its DVB-H compliant Atlas DTV 660 transmitter.
Dale Mowry, vice president and general manager of Harris' TV broadcast systems business unit, said the company's decades of terrestrial transmission experience has been invaluable in expanding beyond its core business to make true mobile video a reality for consumers.
"Building on the coming implementation of our first international DVB-H trials, Harris also is establishing partnerships domestically that will lead to capabilities on all major mobile video platforms. We are confident our end-to-end solutions approach will advance mobile video far beyond its current capabilities," he said.
Harris previously announced it had been selected as the exclusive provider of transmission equipment for NTL Broadcast's DVB-H mobile trials in the United Kingdom. Harris will also supply transmission equipment for a 12-month DVB-H trial in Australia for Bridge Networks.
