Key technology showcase

Among its highlights at NAB, Harris will be showcasing a range of products including routers, servers and playout solutions. The Platinum IP3 router (pictured) is claimed to be the broadcast industry’s first router to accommodate separate video, audio and data paths within the same frame, becoming the first broadcast router to offer a true path to network convergence.  It is also said to be the first signal router that can scale to multi-frame configurations for very large broadcast and media operations — 2048×2048 and beyond — using a common architecture, simplifying installations and eliminating costs associated with external components and complex cabling. Also on display is the next-generation, software-based NEXIO Volt server, which addresses customer needs for higher channel counts in a compact form factor, while increasing options for robust media storage.  The 1RU unit doubles the number of available record ports with four bi-directional HD channels (up to eight SD). In playout, Versio combines baseband video, channel branding and automated workflow capabilities in an easy-to-deploy, software-based, 1RU channel-in-a-box solution.  It significantly reduces the cost and time to launch broadcast, cable and other TV channels and services while offering simple integration with production, traffic and billing, scheduling, asset management, content playout and master control functions — taking full advantage of existing facility workflows for maximum return on investment. N2503
