Macmillan Media relies on Harris for networking

A combination of technologies from Harris' Broadcast and Microwave Communications Divisions offers a cost-effective alternative to leased fiber connections

The Macmillan Media system combines digital microwave radio technology with the Harris NetVX high-speed, integrated networking platform.

Macmillan Media has installed a Harris networking system that connects its new broadcast center in Belfast with Ulster Television (UTV), the Independent Television franchise holder for Northern Ireland.

The system, which combines digital microwave radio technology from Harris' Microwave Communications Division and NetVX is more cost-effective than the leased fiber connection alternative. Macmillan wanted a wireless connection between its new facility and UTV to take advantage of its line-of-sight proximity.

Macmillan Media's studios produce regional news output for “Good Morning Television” (GMTV) and other British broadcasters.
