GatesAir Partners with Dielectric for Ethiopian DVB-T2 Transition Solutions

Dielectric, the antenna and RF system manufacturer, has teamed up with GatesAir in the deployment of a massive, turnkey solution for Ethiopia's nationwide DVB-T2 network. In the works for several years now, this second-generation digital TV transition project commenced shortly after GatesAir won the project back in May 2016. Dielectric has shipped $1.2 million of Powerlite™ antennas, filters, and related RF tech ahead of schedule.

The project encompasses updating 20 TV channels across "26 low-to-medium power UHF transmission sites positioned around the country," according to the August 22nd press release. "Dielectric worked closely with GatesAir, the prime contractor of the project who will design, supply, install, test and commission the network solution, to assure seamless integration with transmission systems at all sites."

Find Out Just How Ready You Are for the Repack

The grand majority of U.S. television stations -- and more than a few FM radio stations -- are following the FCC's 600MHz incentive auction very, very closely. Currently in progress, the auction's purpose is to help reallocate a large portion of the UHF spectrum from TV broadcast use toward mobile data use.

In the resulting repack of this UHF spectrum, hundreds of stations will be subject to channel shifts, shares, or shutdowns. Though these options are all voluntary, the first two could cost those broadcasters lots of time and money in planning, moving, updating, and other logistical considerations.

Protecting Your Valuable Investment

TV and Radio transmitters are often subject to harsh operating conditions. Although GatesAir transmitters are designed to withstand AC power line surges induced by lightning, or other sources, there can be occasions where the built-in protection is just not enough. With the Summer lightning season already upon us, now would be an excellent time to evaluate your transmitter protection.

We always recommend adding good quality AC line transient voltage protection ahead of the transmitter. There are a wide variety of technologies available and many manufacturers have vast experience in dealing with protecting broadcast equipment.
