Harris demonstrated its latest worldwide broadcast management offerings covering network access, automation, digital transmission technology, studios, and systems at IBC2003.
The NetVX allows video, audio and data to be transported over ATM or IP networks - including E-3 and DS-3 microwave networks.
Featuring a packet-based architecture, NetVX is a simple, one-box solution that can be configured to provide the level of functionality that has required up to 14 separate components until now. NetVX allows video, audio and data to be transported over ATM or IP networks, including E-3 and DS-3 microwave networks and more-simultaneously.
Additionally, Harris showed the Harris Resource Suite (hrs), an ingest-to-air workflow automation system. hrs is a scaleable and modular automation system that offers new functionalities and interconnections to streamline operations throughout a station, group, network or enterprise. hrs automates labor-intensive processes such as media ingest, transcoding metadata and archiving, streamlines asset management processes, and shares media seamlessly throughout an enterprise.
Harris also launched SPOT-T, a digital UHF low-power transmitter that bridges the television coverage gap. SPOT-T is intended for television networks as they complete the first phase of conversion to digital transmission.
SPOT-T is a compact low-power DVB-T transmitter that meets the operators' requirements in terms of DVB-T coverage improvement. It aligns with the ETS 300 744 specifications and integrates advanced features such as bit rate adaptation, PCR re-stamping, NIT update, SFN operation with its internal GPS receiver, and control through the MIP channel.
This transmitter has 6/7/8 MHz bandwidths, and therefore is suitable for worldwide applications. It is available for power levels of 3, 12.5, 25 and 50 Watts. All models are housed in a compact 4RU cabinet.
