Uniquely integrated solutions enable broadcasters to profitably deliver content wherever, however audiences consume media
Harris Broadcast, a market share leader of content management and network infrastructure solutions serving the global broadcast, communication service provider, government and enterprise markets, today announced that it will demonstrate its complete integrated portfolio of end-to-end solutions at CABSAT 2014 taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, United Arab Emirates, March 11-13, 2014. This will also be the first global demonstration of Selenio™ Next, Harris Broadcast’s all-in-one TV Everywhere solution designed to optimize space-, power- and cost-efficiency in multiscreen environments.
Visitors to the Harris Broadcast stand will experience real-world, end-to-end media workflows that enable the delivery of revenue-generating content however and wherever viewers are consuming media — from digital terrestrial television (DTT) over fixed and mobile devices to next-generation TV Everywhere applications.
“2013 has seen our business grow significantly in the region, culminating with our DTT solutions enabling the first countrywide DVB-T2 deployment in Kuwait,” said Mathias Eckert, vice president Europe, Middle East and Africa for Harris Broadcast. “We look forward to CABSAT as the leading event for collaborating with regional thought leaders and decision makers, and will be demonstrating end-to-end solutions that ensure workflow efficiency and profitability as they continue creating momentum in the market.”
The following solutions will be showcased at Hall 7, Stand C7-10:
