    CINCINNATI, April 26 /CNW/ -- Harris Corporation (NYSE:   HRS), an
international communications and information technology company, was honored
with five prestigious industry awards at the 2007 National Association of
Broadcasters (NAB2007) convention held earlier this month in Las Vegas.
    Harris won TV Technology magazine's STAR Award (Superior Technology Award
Recipient) for the CENTRIO(TM) multi-image processor; Broadcast Engineering
magazine's Pick Hit award for the Harris Channel ONE(TM) integrated channel
release solution; and Television Broadcast magazine's Top Innovation Award for
the OPTO Test(TM) OFI-20B optical fiber identifier.
    The MPH(TM) (Mobile-Pedestrian-Handheld) in-band mobile DTV system,
jointly developed by Harris Corporation and LG Electronics, was also honored
at NAB2007- winning TV Technology magazine's STAR Award and Television
Broadcast magazine's Top Innovation Award.  The MPH(TM) system provides robust
DTV signals to mobile, pedestrian and handheld devices.
    "At NAB, we introduced a wide range of innovative new solutions for
broadcast workflows that enable broadcasters to create new revenue models,
improve customer workflows and reduce the cost of operations," said Tim
Thorsteinson, president of the Harris Broadcast Communications Division.
"Winning these prestigious industry awards underscores the success of our
strategy to be the ONE answer for customers across the industry."
    The TV Technology STAR Awards are designed to celebrate and showcase the
preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry.  A
panel of judges consisting of TV Technology editors and columnists reviewed a
variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall
contribution to the industry, and then submitted their award nominees.  The
Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit Awards are the industry's longest-running new
technology awards.  An anonymous panel of Broadcast Engineering readers who
are working professionals in the broadcast, post and network and satellite
industries selected the winners.  Products or technologies that receive the
Television Broadcast magazine's Top Innovation Award are nominated by industry
professionals and selected unanimously by the editorial team of Television
Broadcast.  These awards are presented in recognition of Technology Insight
for the Bottom Line(TM), having combined innovative technical achievement with
workflow and cost efficiencies.
    Unveiled at NAB2007, CENTRIO(TM) is a breakthrough multi-image processor
designed to streamline complex, large-system broadcast monitoring applications

graphics playout server, animations, live video, video clips, audio, real-time
external data feeds and master control functionality in a single chassis -

OPTO Test(TM) OFI-20B is a handheld, easy-to-use optical test instrument that
