    Integrated solutions offered by new Harris Broadcast Government Solutions

    LAS VEGAS, March 26 /CNW/ -- IWCE, Booth # 17022 -- Harris Corporation
(NYSE:   HRS), an international communications and information technology
company, has introduced a suite of rich media management solutions optimized
for public safety operations.  The suite, which will be offered through the
newly formed Harris Broadcast Government Solutions Unit, combines individual
Harris products into total content delivery solutions - providing
interoperability to public safety customers.
    The Harris integrated solutions suite addresses requirements such as
internal communications within local and state municipalities, traffic
management and transit communications, emergency broadcasting, geospatial
asset management and video surveillance.
    The Harris suite of products also provides industry-leading broadcast
solutions to support mission-critical video, audio and data transmission
within and among city, county, state and Federal agencies and includes:

    -- Intraplex(R) NetXpress(TM) IP multiplexer, which features SNMP
       management controls for complex audio and data video surveillance
       requirements within land mobile radio networks (shipping now).
    -- Intraplex(R) SynchroCast3(TM) platform, which enables precise time
       delay control for applications requiring the simulcast of mobile radio
       systems (estimated to begin shipping spring 2007).
    -- The H-Class(TM) Content Delivery Platform, an integrated approach to
       content management at the enterprise level, from ingest to distribution
       over a variety of devices or networks; and the H-Class(TM) Digital
       Asset Management tool, a core application within the H-Class(TM)
       product family that uses metadata, an advanced thesaurus, and
       innovative "deep-search" tools such as scene detection and speech
       recognition to enable analysts to find exactly what they need in the
       required resolution.  H-Class(TM) Digital Asset Management now includes
       a tool for connecting geospatial intelligence with rich media content
       (estimated to begin shipping in July 2007 with Geospatial Media Asset
       Management (GMAM) technology, which is a means of tying all media
       assets to a geospatial location on a map).
    -- The AM/FM Radio Flyaway Radio Broadcast System - a completely portable
       radio station in a small, ruggedized cargo container, providing
       everything that is required to begin broadcasting a signal and
       programming in the event of a disaster (shipping now).
    -- The NEO(R) SuiteView(TM) v.3 multiviewer - a tool for command center
       and control room applications that allows a single monitor to act like
       many, with the ability to adapt to router changes and display alarm
       conditions (estimated to begin shipping spring 2007).
    -- InfoCaster(TM) digital signage solution, which allows for the creation
       and display of information from different sources in a variety of
       fields, banners, and crawls and is used to display vital public
       information on a daily basis and/or during emergencies over a broadcast
       network (shipping now).

    "Providing a consolidated suite of products from our commercial Broadcast
Communications Division product lines for public safety applications
highlights the benefits of our ONE initiative," said Tim Thorsteinson,
president of the Harris Broadcast Communications Division.  "The ONE
initiative showcases the company's unique ability to provide a single choice
for entire integrated workflow solutions.
    "Government organizations, similar to commercial businesses, need to
leverage the benefits of information technology to streamline their everyday
operations. By integrating the entire Harris product portfolio, we enable
improved organization workflows and enhanced communication to the public,"
Thorsteinson continued.
