Harris Corporation, an international communications and information technology company, is launching a newly developed Channel Partner Program for its expanded portfolio of Harris Digital Signage™ solutions. Harris Digital Signage™ solutions provide an interoperable system for managing a complete digital signage content delivery workflow. Details of the Channel Partner Program, which goes into effect July 1, 2008, will be introduced to systems integrators, resellers and dealers at InfoComm 08, the world’s largest audiovisual tradeshow, taking place June 18-20, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth N7119).
Developed separately from other existing Harris Broadcast channel partner programs, the new program will provide highly competitive benefits specifically for those channel partners committed to distributing the company’s digital signage solution set. Benefits include special pricing, terms and promotions. In addition, channel partners in this new program will now have the opportunity to design solutions for end users by choosing individual products, managed services offerings, or a combination of point products and managed services that comprise an end-to-end Harris digital signage solution.
Harris Digital Signage™ solutions support the complete digital signage content delivery chain and are designed to scale from supporting small, multi-screen implementations at a single venue to enterprise implementations that encompass large numbers of venues, zones and screens. In addition to the widely used InfoCaster™ professional-grade graphics creation and presentation line of products, the Harris portfolio offers a full line of content management solutions for supporting creation, production, management, scheduling, distribution and reporting.
“Collaborating with Harris has provided a unique advantage when designing and implementing a digital signage solution,” said D’Arcy Pickering, director of sales and marketing at Bannister Lake, a Canadian-based Harris Broadcast channel partner and leading provider of professional video graphic display solutions. “The advanced line of InfoCaster content creation and playout products has made it easy for us to meet the system requirements of our customers. The new Harris Digital Signage™ Channel Partner Program will be even more beneficial to us and our customers because the expanded end-to-end Harris solution is not only technically superior to other available options, but also provides the ability to scale the solution as needed and support our customers for many years to come also provides an invaluable level of confidence.”
