Harris launches Software Systems business unit for broadcast markets

Harris Corporation have announced the formation of a new Software Systems business unit within its Broadcast Communications Division.
The new business unit, headed up by former Encoda Systems CEO John Sorensen, brings together the resources of Harris' automation business and Encoda Systems, which was acquired by Harris in November 2004.
The combined solution set enables Harris to provide total content delivery solutions to existing and emerging broadcast, enterprise and government markets. Serving call letter broadcasters, cable/MSO and satellite service providers, advertising agencies, media rep firms, and enterprises, the new Software Systems business unit will offer modular, standards-based workflow management and service management solutions engineered with open APIs for maximum ease of integration and future scalability.
"Today's announcement comprises the next chapter of Harris' mission to deliver systems that drive customer business results," said Jeremy Wensinger, President and General Manager of Harris' Broadcast Communications Division. "The inception of the new Software Systems business unit - and the open, standards-based solutions it offers - represent an important proactive position for Harris in customizing solutions that increase functionality, productivity and revenue."
The new software systems business unit expands Harris Broadcast Communications Division's organizational structure and will be key to extending the top-of-mind position Harris already enjoys in broadcast transmission hardware to emerging software areas.
Software Systems becomes the fifth business unit of Harris Broadcast Communications, joining Radio Broadcast Systems, Television Broadcast Systems, Networking and Government Solutions, and Broadcast Systems Europe (which develops European-standard transmission products).
