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).

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.
