Harris has formed a new Software Systems business unit within its Broadcast Communications Division.
The new business unit brings together the resources of the company’s automation business and Encoda Systems, which Harris acquired in November 2004.
The combined solution set positions 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 business unit will offer modular, standards-based workflow management and service management solutions engineered with open APIs for maximum ease of integration and future scalability.
Harris has named John Sorensen, former Encoda Systems chief executive officer, president of the new business unit.
