Harris Corporation Awarded Contract by Gearhouse Broadcast to Provide HD Core Processing Equipment for Live Event Production


Equipment to be Used at Euro 2008 Football and 2008 Beijing Summer Games

Winnersh, ENGLAND.— Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, has been awarded a contract to supply Gearhouse Broadcast, a leading international broadcast services company, with a substantial amount of high-definition core processing equipment for use in the production of live events such as the Euro 2008 football championships and the 2008 Beijing Summer Games.

The equipment spans the Harris high-definition (HD) product portfolio, comprising a large number of 6800+™ core processing products, as well as a range of multiviewers, including the award-winning Zandar™ Predator II™ multiviewer and the Zandar QS100HD Quad™ multiviewer in a card.

“We have worked with Harris for many years, and a wide range of the company’s infrastructure and test and measurement products are used regularly in different customer applications,” said Kevin Moorhouse, technical director, Gearhouse Broadcast. “We were keen to use ’tried and tested’ products for these upcoming high-profile sporting events, and Harris offered the best solution to meet our processing needs. Furthermore, the recent acquisition of Zandar by Harris provided us with an ideal opportunity to explore their expanded range of multiviewers, and we were able to select the multi-image display processors that were perfectly suited for these events.”

The Harris portfolio of multi-image display processors ranges from its first-of-a-kind QS100 HD Quad multiviewer in a card to CENTRIO™ multiviewer, now recognized as a world-class, breakthrough multi-image processor built to streamline complex, mid- to large-scale broadcast monitoring applications. Specially designed for the Sony® LMD range of monitors, the QS100HD Quad card is ideal for space saving in applications such as outside broadcast/mobile production such as EURO 2008 football and the Beijing games. The award-winning Predator II multiviewer is a highly scalable, auto-sensing solution for control and monitoring applications that require a truly flexible architecture.
