Harris Corp seals deal with Turkmenistan TV

Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, has secured significant orders from Turkmenistan TV, the state broadcaster in Turkmenistan, for an end-to-end integrated Harris broadcast solution. The Harris products are shipping to meet the tight delivery and installation deadlines — as the station is due to go on air Oct. 1.

The orders, which were awarded earlier this year by Turkmenistan TV, comprises best-in-class Harris products that will furnish the company’s all new Tv-Tower facility in Ashgabat including the master control rooms, production studios, Outside Broadcast vehicles, as well as the playout and news centers. Harris products will also be used to launch Turkmenistan TV’s first IPTV offering.

The project will include the InfoCaster digital signage solution integrated with the newly launched Selenio integrated media convergence platform to support the intelligent, efficient management of IP, compressed and baseband signals.

Istanbul-based Polimeks, the largest construction company in Turkey and its subsidiary company and system integrator, Policom Technology and Foreign Trade Company, secured this project in Ashgabat and worked in collaboration with Harris Broadcast Communications. Harris and Bilgi Park, the Harris dealer in Turkey, worked closely to finalize the product requirements for this project.

“The Tv-Tower project is a massive television complex that combines broadcasting, production, acquisition, post production and a variety of links facilities needed for transmitting a range of HD programs. When complete, this will be one of the best examples of modern broadcast technology in a state-of-the-art television facility,” said Emre Dagdeviren, general manager at Policom. “We chose Harris as our technology partner on this complex project because the company has a long history in the design and manufacture of reliable and robust broadcast products and we know we can depend on them to deliver the promised solutions.”
