Nautel-VS-Series-Big-Transmitter-Features-2

BIG TRANSMITTER FEATURES
FOR UNMATCHED VALUE

Many transmitters in the 300 W to 2.5 kW class use an inexpensive analog exciter that is sometimes an external unit.

In the VS Series, not only did Nautel engineers integrate the exciter, they implemented a true direct-to-channel digital exciter to achieve class leading performance. That means crystal clear audio and outstanding value. A great achievement considering that digital exciters alone usually sell for over US $10,000.

The VS300 and VS1 transmitters with their built-in RDS generator, gps input, powerful presets and -90dB SNR make for powerful and extremely cost-effective exciters.

BUILT IN INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROL

Never before has such sophisticated control been made available in this class of transmitter.

Nautel brings its renowned Advanced User Interface (AUI) found in its high end transmitters to the VS Series. Instrumentation is included that would be valued separately at more than the cost of the transmitter. In addition a front panel LCD provides control of key functions.

Advanced control features include:

  • RF and audio spectrum analyzers
  • Comprehensive monitoring and control
  • Extensive logging of all events
  • SNMP support
  • Email notifications

Nautel-VS-Series-Transmitter-AUI-Remote-Access

FULL CONTROL WHEREVER YOU ARE

Access the AUI via the internet or a direct CAT-5 cable connection. Years of interface development effort gives you immediate access to almost any parameter imaginable, whether at the transmitter site or from the comfort of your living room.

Imagine knowing in advance what parts and tools you’ll need at the transmitter site. Having that much control remotely can help you avoid trips, save time and save money.

 

IP AUDIO I/O

The VS Series are the first transmitters ever to implement Axia’s Livewire Studio to Transmitter Audio over IP Workflow. The result is a seamless digital IP audio path from a host of Livewire compatible devices directly into a Nautel transmitter ensuring outstanding audio purity via a CAT 5 cable.

If you stream your station on SHOUTcast you can even use it as an input should your STL fail.

USB HARD DRIVE OR MEMORY STICK AUDIO AUTOMATION

When you add this much intelligence and IP I/O to a transmitter you’ll be amazed by what you can do.

Nautel added a USB port so that you can connect a megabyte or even a terabyte of local storage. Use the storage to store content or even load up the songs and content using the VS internet connection.

Once you have audio loaded it can become part of the automated back up audio capability should all other connections fail.

 

NEW PLAYLIST AND AUTOMATION FUNCTIONALITY

If you think the local audio storage mentioned above sounds interesting you’ll want to learn more about Nautel PUSHRADIO™.

From your office or anywhere for that matter you can set up basic automation capabilities to playout audio or insert local content. It’s like putting part of the studio inside the transmitter.

Nautel PUSHRADIO can help satellite connected stations slash costs and provide more local content.
