Poland’s Telewizja Polska Chooses Harris Corporation’s Integrated Workflow Solutions for Broadcast Transmission Facility Build-out


Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been selected by Polish public broadcaster Telewizja Polska S.A (TVP) for a new transmission facility build-out at its broadcast headquarters in Warsaw, Poland. The system will be used to play out seven new television channels and reflects the success of the Harris Broadcast ONE initiative, which provides broadcasters with integrated technology solutions that improve their workflows.

The order includes a variety of products that together form an interoperable workflow, including Harris® NEXIO XS™ servers; expansions to TVP’s existing H-Class™ ADC™ playout automation system; the IconLogo™ channel branding solution; Inscriber® G-Series™ live production graphics systems; a Panacea™ router; and a raft of distribution products. The sale was made through JBD, Harris Corporation’s distributor in Poland.

“We have successfully used NEXIO servers and ADC playout automation for a number of years, so we were comfortable placing our confidence in Harris for this key expansion, which includes TVP’s first HD channel playout,” said Wieslaw Lodzikowski, chief of the investment department at TVP. “We evaluated a number of systems on the market and concluded that an integrated solution from Harris — encompassing graphics, branding, servers, automation and routing and distribution — was the best fit for our exacting requirements.”

Designed on a software-based codec model, the NEXIO XS™ server platform enables back-to-back playout of multiple formats on every channel, and is able to encompass new codecs the moment they become available. It provides an extensive range of I/O types, integrated applications support and encode options, including long GOP MPEG-2 at SD and HD resolutions, DV25, DV50 and IMX. Front-panel access to boot and media drives, as well as USB and IEEE-1394 (FireWire®) ports, makes NEXIO XS™ easier to use and service than other options.

The H-Class™ ADC™ playout automation system is a member of the Harris® H-Class™ media software suite, which supports media organizations from proposals and sales through scheduling, media asset management and automated playout. The H-Class ADC playout automation system is the premier production room tool for automated dubbing, content management and program playout. Ideal for small- to mid-size broadcasters, the application is capable of controlling a full range of devices, including the latest integrated switchers, servers and channel branding systems, and of managing complex effects and playout tasks. Each preconfigured ADC™ system can be customized to add channels or device controls as a station’s needs grow.
