Underlining the importance of CABSAT and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, Harris is creating a unique presentation on its booth at the exhibition taking place at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (28 February-1 March 2012).
Harris is putting together the complete demonstration from the acquisition point to the home in a fully-working walkthrough exhibit using third-party cameras alongside its integrated broadcast solutions. The demonstration will showcase content technology and business applications, ensuring that revenue generation and protection is linked directly to production and delivery.
Harris is a market leader in technology for every stage of the digital production and broadcast process, and its end-to-end capabilities are highlighted in this demonstration. Visitors will see signal processing applications of the broadcast workflow, including loudness management, as well as routing and monitoring solutions, master control switching, and encoding and networking. The demonstration also includes servers, editing and other workflow applications such as servers and editing; and over-the-air DVB-T2 transmission right through to the set-top box.
With broadcast systems increasingly moving to file-based infrastructures, a central part of the demonstration will be dedicated to the unique Harris Selenio media convergence platform which had its global launch at CABSAT 2011. Selenio combines traditional baseband video and audio processing, compression and IP networking features all in a single, space-saving 3RU frame.
Automation is an important part of the modern broadcast workflow, and the CABSAT demonstration will include a presentation of Harris sales and scheduling, traffic and billing, playout automation and asset management software solutions. This integrated, file-based workflow dramatically reduces the costs associated with content acquisition, production, distribution and media management.
The links between broadcast to enterprise management systems means that producers can monetise their content at every stage. It also brings the opportunity to understand the costs in every part of the process, so businesses have a clear financial basis on which to plan investment and develop new services.
“Many companies talk about workflows and integration, but in truth very few can actually deliver it,” said Said Bacho, vice president, sales and service, Middle East and South Asia,
Harris Broadcast Communications. “At Harris we are perfectly placed to help our customers develop their technology strategies, whether they are going for a revolution or a migration. That is why we have created this very special demonstration we want to show that we can deliver excellence at each stage of the production and broadcast process, and also that there are huge benefits when we put together complete systems.”
The end-to-end Harris workflow demonstration can be seen at CABSAT 2012 on the Harris stand no. S3-A21 in Sheikh Saeed Hall.
