Harris Wins Kuwait Television Archive Project

Harris Corp. has been awarded an order from systems integrator Gulf Media Co. for the build-out of a new archive facility for Kuwait Television in Kuwait City. The archive project will be the first facility of its kind in the region.

Harris will provide Nexio XS servers, a Velocity NX editing solution, the Centrio broadcast multiviewer, a Platinum router, Videotek TVM-950 test and measurement instruments, 6800+ SD/HD video/audio processing and distribution modules, and the CCS Navigator control and monitoring application.

The company also will provide three members of the H-Class media software suite: the ADC playout automation application, Invenio digital asset management system and Intelligent Media Mover (IMM) workflow management solution.

Gulf Media Co. also selected products from the Harris routing and distribution portfolio for this project.

Gulf Media Co. is a spin off from Enhanced Engineering & Multi Technologies (EEMT). The new company has expanded its work from IT into the broadcast arena, including several key projects for the Kuwaiti Ministry of Information, including build-out of a 10-camera outside broadcast truck for Kuwait Television.
