Harris to Showcase Portfolio at InfoComm 08

Publish date:

Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, will showcase its expanded portfolio of Harris Digital Signage solutions and Zandar multiviewers at InfoComm 08, the industry event for the business-to-business and audio/visual marketplace being held June 18-20, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Harris will demonstrate its expanded line of InfoCaster content creation and playout systems – the key component in the Harris Digital Signage offering. Harris Digital Signage solutions are scalable to support small, multi-screen implementations at a single venue through large enterprise-level installations that encompass large numbers of venues, zones and screens. Harris solutions support the content delivery chain for digital signage, including creation, production, management, scheduling, distribution, and reporting. AV providers, systems integrators and their end users can take advantage of these capabilities by selecting from a set of discrete products, a managed services offering, or a combination of the two, as their needs dictate.

The Harris InfoComm 08 exhibit also will include the latest in Zandar multiviewers for creative professional AV displays, including the newest addition to Harris Corporation's line of multiviewer solutions, the Zandar Predator II. Also exhibited will be the Zandar FusionPro+ series multiviewers, which offer numerous interface options that allow for a combination of live and recorded video, graphics and data in a stylish display. FusionPro+ multiviewers are used in many diverse applications such as digital signage, events and staging, as well as corporate, worship, medical and retail applications. Advanced control options for Zandar multiviewers include the Z-Configurator user interface.

Also on display at InfoComm 08 will be a selection of test and measurement solutions, including Videotek VTM Series multiformat on-screen monitors, the TVM-950 multiformat signal analyzer and a range of handheld test instruments.

"Harris is sensitive to the needs of the AV industry and to those of the resellers and systems integrators who drive this market," said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications. "Our increased presence at this year's InfoComm exhibition and the broader array of products we're featuring represent our continuing commitment. We believe our line of multiviewers is second to none in our industry, providing a selection that no other supplier can touch, and our digital signage offering provides unique opportunities for incremental revenues."

During InfoComm 08, Harris also will be participating in the Digital Signage Technology Summit hosted by the Strategy Institute. Ted Dembicki, vice president of business development for Harris Digital Signage solutions, will take part in the Monday, June 16 panel, entitled, "Software Options: A Framework for Selection to Ensure Interoperability, Fit and Success." Mr. Dembicki will discuss ways to determine needs and resources for the best solution fit, exploring security, scalability, digital rights management, bandwidth control and reporting mechanisms.
