|Harris Corp.'s Innovative Networking Solution Provides Wireless Link
for Macmillan Media, Northern Ireland Broadcast Supplier|
CINCINNATI – Harris Corporation
(NYSE: HRS) today announced that Macmillan Media, the multimedia production, media training and broadcast services
provider in Northern Ireland, has installed an innovative networking system that connects its new broadcast center
in Belfast with Ulster Television (UTV), the Independent Television franchise holder for Northern Ireland. The
system, which combines digital microwave radio technology from Harris' Microwave Communications Division and
NetVX™, an award-winning, high-speed, integrated networking platform from Harris' Broadcast Communications
Division, is far more cost effective than the leased fibre connection alternative.
Macmillan Media's studios
produce regional news output for Good Morning Television (GMTV) and other British broadcasters.
Owner and founder Michael Macmillan said, "It is essential that we present news bulletins which reflect
GMTV's highly successful national program content. The combined expertise of Harris Corporation's Broadcast and
Microwave Communications Divisions offered an opportunity to install a compelling blend of modern technologies. The
capabilities we now have in our new broadcast centre enable us to meet the high standards set by our clients."
Macmillan wanted a wireless connection between its new facility and UTV to take advantage of its
line-of-sight proximity. Macmillan approached Charlie Day, managing director of UK-based broadcast equipment
supplier "The UK Office," who recommended Harris' microwave radios. Macmillan now uses the microwave link to
deliver two channels of television programming to UTV, including live contribution services for GMTV each
Harris' Microwave Communication Division has a wide range of point-to-point digital
microwave radios designed for rapid, easy deployment of short, medium and long links. A wide range of frequency

proposition is its ability to draw upon products from any of Harris' four divisions and combine them in ways that
provide exceptional long-term value and innovation for our customers," said Jim Denny, vice president and general
manager of Harris Broadcast Communications Division's Networking & Government Solutions business unit. The
