Harris Corporation to Introduce Inscriber G7 Integrated Broadcast Graphics Workflow System Featuring Inscriber MOS v5


True 3D Graphics Creation, High-Performance HD/SD Channel Playout and Advanced MOS Newsroom Functionality to be Demonstrated at NAB2008

CINCINNATI. — Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, will introduce its most advanced HD/SD 3D graphics and animation system for live-to air environments — the Harris® Inscriber® G7™ — at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention taking place April 14-17 in Las Vegas (Booth N2502, Las Vegas Convention Center). Harris graphics systems form a core component of the company’s range of scalable, automated channel playout solutions — enabling today’s broadcast operation to differentiate its on-air look and protect its brand.

The Inscriber® G7™ uniquely combines the functionality of multiple products with innovative graphics technology to provide a robust, high-performance 3D graphics creation and HD/SD playout solution with advanced workflow capabilities. A key option for the G7™ is the Inscriber® MOS v5 newsroom graphics management solution, which empowers journalists to create customized, template-based graphics from within any newsroom computer system (NRCS), such as ENPS® and iNEWS®, and automatically insert them into their newsroom rundown. Centralized control playout allows all changes to the NRCS playlist generated from the G-Series™ graphics systems to be automatically updated across multiple channels.

The G7™ features a newly designed graphics engine that supports real-time 2D and 3D animations and provides flawless HD graphics simultaneously over two channels. Optimized with integrated clips and a new, comprehensive productivity package that includes G-Scribe+™ creation and playout software, the system drives the new G-3D™ design module for producing illuminating, true 3D broadcast designs in both HD and SD.

“Leveraging powerful workflow enhancements such as the new Inscriber® MOS v5 graphics management newsroom solution, along with seamless integration within the Harris ONE end-to-end interoperability chain, the G7™ integrated graphics workflow system provides a progressive solution for demanding broadcast environments,” said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications.

Highlights of the high-performance features and workflow benefits of the G7™ and MOS v5 include the following:

* Full 2D and 3D graphics creation and playout with two video inputs per channel, up to 32 channels of discrete audio, and support for 2D and 3D HD DVE.

* G-Scribe+™ 2D/3D creation and playout software, which delivers sophisticated capabilities such as video capture, charting, simultaneous playback, automation interface for real-time data display connection and intelligent graphics transitions.

* G-3D™, a design module that elevates broadcast graphics design with illuminating, true 3D graphics and animations in both HD and SD.

* Network Manager for G-Series™, which bi-directionally manages graphics across a LAN or WAN by publishing content across a local network or through the Internet.

* G-Scribe™ support for custom applications written in RTX.NET. Real-time sports, news and weather data can be streamed and graphically displayed using RTXports on all G-Series™ systems, including the G7™.

* Integration with Harris® NewsForce™, the comprehensive HD/SD file-based news solution, delivering enhanced workflow to the field, the newsroom and the control room.
