MELBOURNE, FL/LAS VEGAS, April 11, 2011 (NAB Show, Booth N2502) — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, is addressing new media delivery for broadcasters and media businesses with enhanced software solutions to support advanced advertising.

"Changes in consumer media are driving business models that effectively target ads in a time-shifted, non-linear world," said Harris Morris, president, Harris Broadcast Communications. "Harris is fusing traditional broadcasting needs with those in the new media world to monetize content in today's dynamic, hybrid environment."
