Harris (HRS) Receives Digital TV Transmission Contract in Bulgaria

 November 14, 2012 11:57 AM
 


(By Balaseshan) Harris Corp. (NYSE: HRS) said it has received a contract worth nearly $8 million from the Bulgarian TV transmission network operator NURTS Digital EAD to transition the country to DVB-T over-the-air digital television (DTV).

The project will spread services into more sparsely populated rural areas and represents the completion of Bulgaria's TV digitization strategy as the government moves toward an analog TV switch-off date in early 2013.

Harris, in cooperation with its Bulgarian dealer, New Tek, will supply 196 transmission sites with Maxiva UAX DVB-T air-cooled transmitters and low-power Maxiva UAX Compact Class gap filler systems with power ratings between 10W and 1kW. Maxiva UAX transmitter designs are based on the Harris PowerSmart architecture.

"NURTS Digital EAD's commitment to digital television represents one of the largest purchases of DVB-T technology in Europe by a single company. We are helping support their goals and vision of bringing high-quality DTV services to nearly the entire country's population," said Harris Morris, president, Harris Broadcast Communications.

The PowerSmart design offers the broadcast industry's highest power density and operational efficiency for over-the-air transmission, with its unrivaled compact footprint and green, energy-saving performance. The transmitters also include Harris Apex M2X software-defined exciters to maximize over-the-air signal quality and performance.

Harris is able to supply large volumes of easy-to-install transmitters adapted to specific customer requirements, such as N+1 control architectures for transmission redundancy, within a very short timeframe. The pre-assembled transmission systems, now being delivered, are ready for installation upon arrival.

For Harris, this project represents the latest in a series of DVB-T and DVB-T2 digital migrations, which are the leading DTV standards in the central European region.

HRS is trading up 0.06 percent at $47.97 on Wednesday. The stock has been trading between $33.24 and $52.23 for the past 52 weeks.
