MOSCOW/MELBOURNE, FL, November 23, 2011 (NATEXPO, Stand A56) — Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS), an international communications and information technology company, announced that Russia's first 24-hour news channel, RBC TV, has deployed a wide range of Harris technology to form a bespoke news production and playout system at its headquarters in Moscow.
The new Harris infrastructure and workflow solution brings greater operational efficiency to RBC TV by facilitating a tapeless, file-based workflow throughout the facility. The upgraded system stretches across the workflow from ingest to playout, driving the broadcaster's news, production and master control areas.

Most importantly, the Harris solution makes content easily accessible and easy to modify, enabling us to maximize the value of our existing media."
Harris Platinum™ large-scale and Panacea™ small-scale routing systems support facility-wide signal distribution at the infrastructure, while compact Harris HView™ multiviewer solutions simplify signal monitoring and management.
