Harris Introduces NEXIO Studio Suite

Harris Corporation has introduced NEXIO Studio Suite to help customers transition to tapeless studio production and file-based workflows.

NEXIO Studio Suite is designed for live multi-camera studio productions such as news and magazine-format, entertainment, and reality TV shows.  It offers video tape recorder (VTR) functionality while adding the operational benefits of multichannel, nonlinear video servers.  The software allows operation and control of many server ports over IP networks, including multichannel recording and playback within NEXIO servers.

“Broadcasters and production professionals are increasingly moving away from expensive, high-maintenance VTRs as they transition to tapeless studio production and file-based workflows,” said Harris Morris, president, Harris Broadcast Communications.  “Harris NEXIO Studio Suite gives our customers the best of both worlds for live studio production:  A familiar user interface and the path to a cost-efficient, streamlined, tapeless studio production experience.”

NEXIO Studio Suite has the shared storage architecture of NEXIO servers, providing users of Harris Velocity ESX or Apple Final Cut Pro editors with  access to content.  It enables specific tasks commonly associated with fast, live, multi-camera studio recording and playback.

NEXIO Studio Suite is based on ClipJOCKEY, a control software application developed by German software company S4M – Solutions For Media.  The two companies worked together to develop a user interface that enables the control of all workflows tied to a NEXIO video server installation.
