Harris Broadcast Introduces Low-Power VHF Transmitter Series For Global Standards
Harris Broadcast will introduce its Platinum™ VAX Compact Class range of VHF transmitters at the 2013 NAB Show (Las Vegas Convention Center, April 8-11, Booth N2503), adapting the company’s compact, power-efficient transmission philosophy to low-power VHF applications for ATSC and worldwide terrestrial standards.
The Platinum VAX Compact Class series is the latest addition to the company’s transmitter portfolio, ensuring a solution for virtually any VHF analog or digital power requirements. The new series is most suited for low-power transmitting stations and gap filler applications, and is especially useful for covering specific regions in extended markets or difficult terrains.
Platinum VAX Compact Class transmitters cover low-power VHF transmissions in a 2RU chassis design, with rack savings of up to 50 percent compared to previous-generation transmitters of equivalent power levels. As with all Harris Broadcast TV transmitters, the new series integrates Harris Broadcast Apex M2X™ exciters to enable simple modulation changes and analog-to-digital upgrades, supporting ATSC, DVB-T/T2 and ISDB-Tb among other standards — including DAB radio.
The company will also demonstrate complete ATSC Mobile DTV solutions including M-EAS functionality and non-real time data applications, as well as DTV headend solutions ISDB-Tb and DVB-T2 and new transmitter plug-in modules.
