Harris Ships to Turkmenistan - of all places

Harris Corporation, the US international communications and information technology company, has secured significant orders from Turkmenistan TV, the state broadcaster in Turkmenistan for a very large 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 on 1st October 2011.

The PR release from Harris issued at IBC 2011 claims this order represents the largest project of its kind awarded to a single manufacturer in the broadcast arena in recent years. The orders, which were awarded earlier this year by Turkmenistan TV, comprises 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 centres. Harris products will also be used to launch Turkmenistan TV's first IPTV offering.

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 TV programmes. 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.
