Harris announced that its leading iPhone(r) application, Newsfish(tm), has been introduced for use with its Full Motion Video Asset Management Engine (FAME(tm)) for military, government, and public safety agency use.

Initially developed for news organizations, Newsfish extends commercial capabilities to the Department of Defense and allows intelligence agencies, military and government organizations to gather content captured by soldiers, federal and public agency operators, or other citizen journalists.

Newsfish transforms cellular telephones into content-gathering devices by merging phone capabilities and the ability to instantly post images, video and other data out to the intelligence or military community. Newsfish takes captured or live video and story metadata and delivers it to a command center or network operations center where the FAME automated asset management workflow facilitates the processing of the content for distribution.

The Harris Newsfish revolutionizes content gathering by facilitating the first-hand capture of data and imagery by those engaged in an event. The application also enables users to validate citizen journalist video content - making data available to help verify the location where the material was captured, as well as other critical information.

"Newsfish enhances the abilities of command and network operation centers by enabling smartphone users to capture video, annotate it, and send it directly into FAME systems," said Sheldon Fox, Group President, Harris Government Communications Systems. "FAME leverages our industry-leading broadcast and government communications expertise to enable easy cataloging, automated content preparation workflows, and access to Newsfish videos for quick repurposing and distribution."
