Harris Corp. Named Manufacturer of the Year for Third Consecutive Year at CABSAT 2009

Harris
Corp. has been honored with its third consecutive Digital Studio Manufacturer of the Year Award in recognition of the
contributions the company has made to the growth of the broadcast and production
sectors in the Middle East. Supported by
the International Association of Broadcast Manufacturers, the award was
announced on March 4 at a gala event held during CABSAT 2009, the Middle East region’s
leading event for the digital-media industry.

Harris has
demonstrated its commitment to broadcasters in the Middle
East by continuing to make investments in local staff, service, and
support. Since opening its Mideast regional headquarters in Dubai Media City in 2006, Harris has strived to better understand
and support local customers through various initiatives, including increasing
its local sales and support staff and opening a spare-parts hub in Dubai, which enables the
company to respond quickly and effectively to customer needs.

“We
are proud to have received this significant industry recognition three years in
a row, as it demonstrates not only our ongoing commitment to the Middle East
region but also the staying power Harris possesses even in challenging
economic times,” says
Said Bacho, managing director, Harris Broadcast Communications, Middle East. “By placing local employees on the ground in regional markets
and capitalizing on our ONE solution approach, we have continued to strengthen
our presence and drive Harris sales success throughout the Middle
East.”

The fifth
Annual Digital Studio Awards gala, which took place at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel
in Dubai, was attended by hundreds of the region’s leading professionals in the
broadcast, production, post, and film industry, as well as systems integrators,
consultants, and several high-profile guests.
