Harris has announced a new Software Systems Business Unit within its Broadcast Communications Division to serve existing and new broadcast and enterprise markets.
The new business unit brings together the resources of Harris' automation business and Encoda Systems, who was acquired by Harris in November 2004. The combined solution set enables Harris to provide total content delivery solutions to existing and emerging broadcast, enterprise and government markets.
Serving call letter broadcasters, cable/MSO and satellite service providers, advertising agencies, media rep firms, and enterprises, the new Software Systems unit will offer modular, standards-based workflow management and service management solutions engineered with open APIs for maximum ease of integration and future scalability.
John Sorensen, former chief executive officer of Encoda Systems, has been named president of the new unit. Sorensen joined Encoda Systems in 1987 as the principal designer and developer of the company's traffic management and billing software systems for the cable and MSO market.
