Harris Corporation Announces First Sale of NUCLEUS Next-Generation Network Control Panel to Hearst-Argyle’s KCRA-TV


User-configurable, real-time control panel now shipping to customers worldwide

CINCINNATI, February 15, 2006 — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS) today announced the first sale of NUCLEUS™, its next-generation, user-configurable, real-time control panel, to Sacramento, California-based KCRA-TV, a member station of Hearst-Argyle Television, Inc. NUCLEUS™ is designed to centralize the operational control of processing, branding and routing products and is now available to customers worldwide.

“The NUCLEUS™ configuration utility was easy to figure out, and we had the panel up and running in no time,” said Stefan Hadl, director of engineering, KCRA-TV. “NUCLEUS™ provides us with easy access to device control parameters, a user-friendly display and a higher degree of user customization than we’ve ever seen, giving us superior control over our operation.”

Providing user-configured control at the center of station operations, NUCLEUS™ offers real-time control and monitoring of any Leitch CCS Protocol™-enabled device, including the X75™ M-PATH multiple-path up/down/cross converter and synchronizer and products within the NEO™ and 6800+™ platforms. NUCLEUS™ is configured with an intuitive drag and drop wizard. NUCLEUS™ provides more knobs for parameter adjustments, more buttons to quickly invoke parameter value changes and an enhanced display to improve overall operation. With NUCLEUS™, users can quickly store and recall device presets and reset a device to a user-defined “unity” setup. NUCLEUS™ also offers the unique capability of tracking other network control panels and generates an on-screen notification if more than one user is connected to the same device.

“Today’s requirements for total content delivery in a fast-paced, digital environment place heavy demands on control panels, as they must be tailored to each user’s needs and support interactions with a minimum number of keystrokes,” said Tim Thorsteinson, president of the Leitch Business Unit, which is part of the Broadcast Communications Division of Harris Corporation. “We are confident NUCLEUS™ will become the control panel of choice for broadcast operations, as it unifies the operation of key functions that are deployed within any workflow.”
