Nautel to Show Broad Range of Transmission Options at IBC
High-power MW, low and high power FM, DRM30 and µMPX to be featured on stand.
IBC 2016, Stand 8.C49
Hackett’s Cove, Nova Scotia – Nautel Limited will demonstrate transmitter technologies ranging from low power FM to high power Medium Wave at the upcoming IBC convention. Nautel will also host a DRM event on their stand and will participate in IBC’s first-ever demonstration of µMPX in conjunction with The Telos Alliance.
Nautel recently announced completion of the world’s largest digital radio deployment encompassing 27 high-power MW transmitters, all configured for DRM30 transmission, deployed across the country of India. This deployment and other DRM30 news will be presented in an event to be held on the Nautel stand on Saturday, 10 September beginning at 15:30: “DRM30 – Expanding the Limits”. Representatives from Nautel and the DRM Consortium will speak at the event. Refreshments will be served following the remarks.
On display will be Nautel’s NX100 MW transmitter, supplying 100 kW of analogue power output in a surprisingly compact footprint. The NX100, along with other high-power MW products from Nautel, offers the industry’s top efficiency (90%), AM precorrection with unmatched linearity, instrument-grade spectrum analyzers for both audio and RF, 100% remote access to monitoring and control functions, and Nautel’s award-winning Advanced User Interface (AUI). The NX100 is just one member of Nautel’s comprehensive NX line, which encompasses products with power outputs of 3 kW to 2 MW. Nautel will also show selected products from the company’s VS, NV and NVlt Series FM transmitters.
Also in hall 8, demonstrations of a groundbreaking composite FM Codec, µMPX, will be shown by The Telos Alliance (IBC stand 8.D47) with participation from Nautel. µMPX (“micro” MPX) is a specially designed audio codec for FM radio that can transport high-quality multiplexed FM signals over a relatively small 320 kbps data pipe. By reducing data requirements, high-quality multiplexed audio can be economically routed from an audio processor, over IP, and directly into an exciter.
“We are excited to show these advanced Radio transmission technologies at IBC,” said Wendell Lonergan, Head of Broadcast Sales for Nautel, “and invite attendees to visit our stand for personal demonstrations of our technologies. With options for not only analogue but HD Radio™ and DRM modes, as well as low power television, Nautel can supply the reliable, efficient transmitters needed for broadcasters throughout the world.”
Nautel has emerged as one of the world’s largest manufacturers of broadcast transmitters. With more than 14,000 transmitters deployed in over 177 countries since 1970 and more than 6,000 deployments of AUI-enabled transmitters, Nautel continues to lead the way in providing valuable new solutions for digital broadcasting and other applications.
