Complete content management and infrastructure solution automates production workflows for new network

Harris Broadcast, a global supplier of content management and network infrastructure serving broadcasters, satellite, MSOs, IPTV, mobileTV and OTT providers, is supporting the recently-launched One America News Network with a complete content management and infrastructure solution offering an efficient, fast-turnaround news production workflow through an automated, file-based environment.

Herring Networks owns and operates One America News Network which launched in July and will reach 12-to-15 million homes by the end of 2013. The network operates production operations in Washington, DC and California, though prime-time production, playout and other technical operations are centralized at Herring Networks’ San Diego facility.

The Harris Broadcast infrastructure solution includes routers with built-in multiviewers for space-efficient, in-plant signal distribution and visual monitoring of IP and baseband signals, as well as high-quality branding and graphics solutions to power its on-air look. Additionally, Harris Broadcast signal processing solutions ensure exceptional video and audio quality, with a complete test and measurement toolset to maintain signal integrity.

One America News Network operators can quickly turn around professional on-air programming via a robust and efficient automated, file-based content management solution. Harris Broadcast servers and storage eliminate time-consuming and expensive transcoding processes, while supporting native file imports and playback for multiple broadcast and production formats.

“Harris Broadcast has a strong reputation as a leader in automation, and its highly expandable nature gives us the ability to launch additional channels as new opportunities arise. Channels can be turned around in days instead of months,” said Herring Networks General Manager Robert Herring, Jr. “Overall, working with Harris Broadcast allows for seamless integration and enhanced workflow. Their technology and superior support has earned them a rock-solid reputation and preferred supplier status within our organization.”

Overall, the Harris Broadcast solution has simplified installation and ongoing ease of use. For example, the integrated routing and advanced signal processing solutions offer outstanding rack-space density, eliminating the need for expansive wiring. This translates to cleaner signal integrity — a fitting result given the high-performance operation of its production workflow.

“Creating a news workflow that is fast, efficient and flexible is critical for One America News Network and other leading news operations worldwide,” said Brian Cabeceiras, senior vice president sales, Harris Broadcast. “Harris Broadcast has the breadth of best-in-class products to accomplish these important production and on-air requirements across the workflow, from ingest and playout to test and measurement.”
