Broadcast Communications / Selenio Media Convergence Platform

By: Harris  09-12-2011

Every day our industry accelerates its migration from a traditional broadcast model to a more flexible, efficient IP-based workflow. Productivity demands it — and new revenue is reliant on it. Adding new services without driving operating expenses through the ceiling is key.

Enter Selenio™ — an all-new approach to signal processing and compression in this converging baseband/broadband arena. With Selenio, Harris has introduced the industry’s first integrated media convergence platform.

An evolution in platform. A revolution in what you can do.

The Selenio media convergence platform combines baseband video and audio processing, compression and IP networking features — all in a single 3RU frame. Its second-to-none flexibility makes it ideal for any fixed or mobile production environment, broadcast facility or digital terrestrial redistribution head end (DVB-T/T2, ATSC, M/H), as well as cable, satellite and IPTV head ends.

Selenio fits into your existing infrastructure — no need to change anything. At the same time, it provides an on-ramp to the IP world, which you can access at your own pace.

With Selenio, you get all the functionality you need to run your business today — and a prudent, cost-effective growth path to whatever is on your horizon.
