DENVER, April 6, 2010 — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, is collaborating with MiraVid, a global provider of MPEG technologies and tools, to introduce a new line of multi-source analyzers for compressed audio and video streams at the 2010 NAB Show taking place April 12-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth N2502).
The new Multi-Source Analyzer (MSA) Series from Harris offers a range of solutions that combine confidence monitoring with full testing for compressed video conformance, audio level, data services and ETR-290 on any terrestrial broadcast, cable headend, satellite or telco network. With two base platforms available (MSA-100 and MSA-300), customers can select the I/O configuration, channel capacity and system redundancy that meet their specific needs. Both solutions are offered in space-efficient 1RU packages.
“As video and audio codec types and transport formats continue to proliferate, it becomes an increasing challenge for media providers to efficiently monitor and maintain quality of service,” said Harris Morris, president, Harris Broadcast Communications. “By collaborating with MiraVid, a leader in compressed-analysis technology, Harris is now able to provide customers worldwide with powerful, easy-to-use analyzers that work within today’s video-over-IP infrastructures, while still supporting legacy delivery interfaces.”
Ideal for today’s complex, multichannel environments, the Harris MSA Series provides a rich, user-interface experience for both local and remote control situations, and can simultaneously handle a large number of channels in real time. The new analyzers offer a unique combination of features, including a variety of input interfaces and support for a wide range of codec types and transport delivery formats, making them well-suited to facilities around the world.
