Harris Corporation To Demonstrate World's First Mobile Pedestrian Handheld Enabled Broadcast Exciter At NAB2008

New Exciter Extends Harris Range Of Multiplatform Delivery Solutions For TV Transmission (February 21, 2008)
DMN Newswire--2008-2-21--Harris Corporation (NYSE: HRS), an international communications and information technology company, will extend its range of multiplatform delivery solutions with the introduction of the world's first Mobile Pedestrian Handheld (MPH) ready digital exciter at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention taking place April 14-17 in Las Vegas (Booth N2502, Las Vegas Convention Center).

MPH in-band mobile DTV is the ATSC-compatible mobile TV solution jointly developed by LG/Zenith Corporation and Harris Corporation. The MPH platform allows local TV stations to deliver digital, ATSC-compatible content to portable media players, automobile-based TV equipment, GPS devices, laptop computers and mobile phones. Harris will display the next-generation exciter at NAB2008 as part of the MPH in-band mobile DTV display at its booth.

"The Harris® MPH ready exciter is designed to provide today's multimedia broadcaster with one hardware platform capable of multiple modulation schemes," said Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications. "As the only MPH ready exciter on the market, this platform can be used by broadcasters today to deliver MPH content to various mobile and video devices ? and to deliver standard and HDTV programming to traditional TV sets."


The frequency-agile exciter is capable of transmitting other ATSC digital TV services, including HDTV, using the same slice of bandwidth. This allows local broadcasters to multiplex all TV services into a single transport stream for over-the-air transmission. The MPH ready exciter is compatible with most digital transmitters, including all Harris® ATSC transmitters from its PowerCD®, DiamondCD®, Sigma®, Platinum-i, Ranger and Atlas product lines.

The MPH exciter also incorporates the latest version of Harris® RTAC (real-time adaptive correction) technology that the company first introduced in its Apex ATSC digital exciters. Harris® RTAC technology minimizes over-the-air signal distortions for FCC mask compliance through non-linear correction, and now offers linear equalization of the modulation signal to maximize the coverage area throughout a specific market.

Harris digital transmitters and exciters are among the wide range of Harris solutions that optimize the transmission workflows of today's broadcast operations.

Harris Broadcast Communications provides products, systems, and services that deliver interoperable workflow solutions that span the entire broadcast delivery chain. The Harris ONE approach brings together highly integrated and cost-effective products that are ideal for emerging media business models and for customers upgrading media operations to digital and high-definition services.
