Harris’ Broadcast Communications Division has announced that its integrated video content management and distribution system has been selected by Anteon International has selected Harris’ integrated video content management and distribution system to be included in the U.S. Army's Combat Training Center Objective Instrumentation Systems Program. The project, led by Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training & Support, will be deployed at the U.S. Army's National Training Center at Fort Irwin, CA.
Harris’ system digitally transports, ingests, stores, adds metadata, analyzes and archives large quantities of video produced during training exercises. The video will come from more than 60 different sources, including night-vision cameras, handheld camcorders and fixed camera locations. The resulting training excerpts will be transported to multiple locations and devices, ranging from large, fixed-location theaters and mobile battleground theaters to portable devices such as laptop computers in the field.
Harris' Invenio enterprise-wide collaborative content management suite will provide metadata tagging, search and retrieval, and the ability to add custom vocabulary to make the system friendly to end users. In addition, the project will use Harris’ NetVX high-speed connectivity for video networks and its DataPlus WAN-based media management system for real-time collection, scheduling and transfer of digital assets.
Harris will serve as a subcontractor to Anteon, an information technology and engineering solutions company, which will oversee and develop the After Action Review and Video Monitoring, Recording and Editing Technology Capability Groups in support of the National Training Center requirement.
