Zee News On Air With Harris Digital System

Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has announced that Zee Uttar Pradesh is the latest channel at India's Zee News Limited to go on air using the Harris NewsForce high-definition/standard-definition news production platform.
The newsroom facility at Zee Uttar Pradesh represents one of the most comprehensive installations of a Harris ONE solution in India, comprising integrated broadcast solutions that span automation, broadcast infrastructure and video server products.
Other Zee New Limited facilities using a Harris ONE solution include those at Zee News, Zee Business, Zee Marathi, Zee Bangla, Zee Punjabi, Zee Chhattisgarth, Zee Telugu, Zee Kannada, Zee 24 Taas and 24 Ghanta - a 24-hour Bangla news channel operated by a subsidiary company known as Zee Akaash News Private Limited.
Y.P. Singh, Senior Vice President of Technology at Zee News Limited, said: "We rolled out Harris NewsForce across our entire news operation because its integrated solution meets our news production workflow requirements. We wanted to collaborate with a company offering interoperable products, while supporting our engineering efforts locally across India. With its news offices in Noida, Harris had the winning combination that matched our exacting needs for this news project."
The Harris end-to-end news workflow at Zee Uttar Pradesh features the NEXIO AMP advanced media platform, as well as members of the NewsForce family of MOS-enabled applications, including Velocity ESX on-SAN high-resolution editors. The Harris ADC playout automation system provides the content workflow management from ingest and preparation through to transmission.
The installation also houses a raft of Harris Videotek TVM multiformat signal analysers, the 6800+ modular core processing platform, the IconMaster master control switcher, a Platinum router, Predator II multiviewers, the X75 all-in-one processor and DTS Neural Loudness Control technology.
Stephen Wong, Vice President of Asia-Pacific operations at Harris Broadcast Communications, said: "India has seen a proliferation of news channels in recent years and Zee News Limited has been a significant part of that growth. Our streamlined workflows provide operations like Zee News Limited with solutions that deliver the cost-efficiencies needed in today's increasingly competitive news business."
Created in 1992, Zee News became the first 24-hour news channel in India in 1999. The Zee Business channel, which was launched in November 2004, is rated the number-one Hindi business news channel in India. Besides attracting large numbers of viewers through its news and regional entertainment channels, Zee News Limited supplies content to the international broadcasting business of Zee in the US, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific.
Harris Broadcast Communications offers products, systems and services that provide interoperable workflow solutions for broadcast, cable, satellite and out-of-home networks.
