Harris and DRM to be major sponsors of ABU DBS 2012

Friday 09 Dec 2011
 Harris and the DRM Consortium will be major sponsors of the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union’s Digital Broadcasting Symposium 2012, to be held in Kuala Lumpur on 6-9 March.


The symposium, with the theme Decision Time for Stakeholders, is the eighth in a series of annual symposiums staged by the ABU to help radio and television broadcasters and the industry to make the digital transition.

The 2012 symposium will feature presentations by experts, panel discussions and workshops, as well as an exhibition showcasing the latest broadcasting products and services.

Richard Redmond, Vice President of Product Management & Strategy for Harris Corporation, said: “Harris has worked regularly with the ABU and in particular the Kuala Lumpur ABU Symposium as this regional platform offers the Asia-Pacific broadcast community a vital opportunity to share information and experiences, identify market trends and assess market activity while also allowing us to share our own technological innovations with customers and partners alike.
