ORLANDO, Fla., 15 Nov 2006. Harris Corp. of Melbourne, Fla., announced an enhanced capability for its H-Class digital asset management solution that uses commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), third-party software analysis tools to expand the capability of surveillance networks, Harris officials announced Nov. 14 at GEOINT 2006 in Orlando, Fla.

In a joint development effort with Mediaware International of Arlington, Va., and piXlogic LLC of Los Altos, Calif., Harris has integrated video analytics, video and audio coding, and processing/storage capabilities into one digital asset management platform.

"The H-Class Content Delivery Platform can integrate with any software application needed for video analysis," explains Lucius Stone, director of sales at the Harris Broadcast Communications Government Solutions sector. "Harris chose to work with Mediaware and piXlogic because we wanted to associate our platform with the world's best-in-class applications."

Integrated with the H-Class Content Delivery Platform are video analytics tools from piXlogic and Mediaware. piXlogic has a advanced visual search engine that automatically analyzes, indexes, and searches the contents of images and video files, with high levels of accuracy and speed.

Mediaware has created an IP-based video networking solution that enables the distribution of multiformat digital content to a variety of client devices suited for playback. In addition, Mediaware provides an interface for moving Key-Length-Value metadata through the H-Class platform, which makes it available to multiple applications.

By integrating these analysis tools with the H-Class platform, users can link concepts and images together through the H-Class Digital Asset Management Video Thesaurus feature to quicken and simplify the search for video material and move content from one device to another in a secure manner.
