From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Leitch Technology Corporation was a Canadian corporation based in Toronto, Ontario specializing in the design and manufacture of equipment for the broadcast television and video post-production industries.

On October 25, 2005, Leitch was acquired by the broadcast division of the Harris Corporation for the sum of US$450 million, with former Leitch shareholders approving the acquisition by Harris for $14 CAD per share.

Leitch was famous for developing the Viewguard system (similar in function to VideoCipher I) used by networks such as ABC, Fox, and others for encrypting their analog network feeds.

Their Digital Processing Systems (DPS) product line is still widely used in professional video applications like time base correction and stop-motion animation.
