Harris Arrives at HD World with New Products in Tow

Harris Corp. will exhibit an array of offerings at HD World (Oct. 13-15) this year (Booth # 1115).  These include several new products making their U.S. debut, as well as 3D and ATSC Mobile DTV demonstrations.

Making its U.S. debut at HD World is the new HView IP multiformat broadband multiviewer.  The HView IP multiviewer is ideal for multichannel broadcasters transitioning to IP-based infrastructures.  The new multiviewer provides all the monitoring capabilities of a traditional baseband multiviewer, but functions in an IP-networked environment where the feeds being monitored are all compressed video or audio.  With its ability to support multiple compression formats and resolutions, the HView IP multiviewer is ideal for operators that use different codecs for different jobs — from H.264 to MPEG-2.

HD World also marks the U.S. introduction of HView-SX Hybrid, a new multiviewer designed for hybrid applications with routing and monitoring of both traditional and IP signals.  Combining baseband and broadband monitoring, graphics, and optional integrated test and measurement tools in a single chassis, the new multiviewer/router solution is built to reduce integration costs and increase space efficiency.  The Harris hybrid multiviewer resides within the output section of the Harris Platinum router frame, and is available as either a multiviewer-only or multiviewer/router integrated solution.

The Magellan family of router control panels provides an efficient  way to control both Harris and third-party routing systems.  Winner of a TV Technology Europe STAR Award at the IBC 2010 show in Amsterdam, Magellan router control panels are available as a series of 10 programmable hardware panel types in both 1 and 2RU versions.  The Magellan template-driven panels provide intuitive, Web-based configuration for quick and straightforward setup in both local and remote operations.

Videotek test and measurement solutions for loudness control (CMN-LA loudness analyzer, LLM-1770 loudness logger and VTM-TVM loudness options for existing monitoring scopes) and 3D television (VTM-4150PKG monitor and TVM-9150PKG signal analyzer) will also be on diplay.  Harris will also show its CVM-306 multiformat signal analyzer, expanding the company’s Compact Monitor series for integrated video/audio signal monitoring in three versions: SD, HD/SD and 3 Gb/s/HD/SD. Both the SD and HD/SD versions are upgradeable to 3 Gb/s.

Harris also will showcase the NEXIO Volt integrated storage server, a small form-factor baseband video server equipped with its own media storage (support for up to four mixed SD/HD or SD-only baseband channels in 1RU); the Platinum router, which offers an eight-channel frame sync input card and mux/demux embedded audio processing capabilities; and the Inscriber G7 integrated HD/SD graphics system.

Finally, visitors to the show can see demonstrations of Harris 3DTV solutions, as well as ATSC Mobile DTV. Jay Adrick, VP of broadcast technology, Harris Broadcast Communications, will speak in a session entitled “The Power of Mobile Digital Television” on Oct. 13.

In addtion, Harris experts will be on-hand to answer questions about the new 6800+ Application Series, recently introduced at IBC 2010. Designed to address specific applications, this cost-effective series places emphasis on providing only the necessary features per module — without compromising broadcast quality or reliability.
