Harris Launches NEXIO Browse Suite of File-Based Workflow Solutions

Corp. has launched the NEXIO Browse suite, a comprehensive portfolio of
tools that facilitate H.264 proxy viewing and editing, enabling broadcasters to
implement an affordable and scalable low-resolution workflow.

Browse helps eliminate the need for a complex baseband infrastructure for proxy
storage and management, making it easier than ever to deploy a low-resolution,
file-based workflow in news and sports operations,” says Tim Thorsteinson,
president of Harris Broadcast Communications. “Media management and
editing are simplified, and high-resolution conforming for play-to-air
functions can be performed quickly and seamlessly.”
The NEXIO Browse suite is part of the Harris NewsForce HD/SD news platform. It includes all the tools necessary to generate, view, and edit low-resolution proxy files across a storage area network (SAN):
NEXIO PRX Transcoder server automatically converts high-resolution content from the NEXIO SAN into low-res files. NEXIO AMP PRX Encoder integrated-media application for the NEXIO AMP advanced-media platform creates low-res proxy clips simultaneously with baseband ingest. NEXIO Browse Server storage array provides high-performance, frame-accurate proxy-file storage. NEXIO Proxy Media Host server provides modular expansion of the number of viewers and editors connecting to the NEXIO low-res SAN. Velocity PRX proxy editor integrates with MOS-compliant newsroom computer systems, allowing rundowns and scripts to be viewed directly from the proxy-editing interface. NEXIO InstantOnline III conforming engine enables low-res clips to be conformed to high resolution at the push of a button for immediate play to air.

ability to move, browse, and edit low-resolution files delivers a critical speed
advantage in the competitive news and sports industries — or any broadcast
environment where large numbers of people benefit from shared access to
content,” Thorsteinson says. “Our NEXIO Browse solution allows scores of users
to view and edit content simultaneously, with significantly reduced storage and
bandwidth requirements when compared to a high-resolution SAN. This
capability not only helps broadcasters get to air faster, it saves them money.”
