OVERVIEW

The Maxiva™ VLX VHF liquid-cooled transmitter (formerly Platinum™ VLX) delivers the newest and most advanced VHF transmission platform with exceptional power efficiency, superior RF performance, and a modular user-friendly design. These capabilities along with the Maxiva VLX’s flexible configurations and superior power density provide the critical features upon which broadcasters can build their network.

The Maxiva VLX incorporates the PowerSmart® solid-state architecture with 50 Volt LDMOS amplifier devices and the Maxiva M2X™ exciter technology with RTAC™ to provide today’s broadcaster with leading power efficiency and unmatched signal performance. The VLX power amplifiers have a record of proven performance and reliability with GatesAir transmitters and are in use around the world. This powerful blend of technologies provides best-in-class performance with respect to power efficiency, transmitter size and user features. The modular design allows for simpler installation, easier maintenance and reduced total cost of ownership over the life of the transmitters. The VLX is available over a wide range of output power configurations that are suitable for broadcast applications where liquid cooling and space considerations are a premium.

The Maxiva VLX transmitter is capable of multiple modulation schemes for band III VHF analog or digital TV and digital radio operation — including ATSC, ATSC MDTV, DVB-T/H, DVB-T2, ISDB-Tb, DTMB, DAB/DMB and future digital standards. Upgrading from analog to digital or to newer digital standards is readily accomplished to further extend the capability and life of the transmitter.
