Over the last 30 years, a few truly outstanding FM exciters have made their mark and upgraded many FM transmitters by simple replacement. But think for a moment about how much would you have paid to replace an old analog exciter with a high-performance, direct-to-channel digital replacement exciter with superior audio performance specifications, numerous audio inputs and a full digital exciter feature set? $8,000? $10,000? $12,000? What’s more, that exciter would typically be limited to 50 watts output. Has this high cost kept your station for getting the most out of your transmitter?
What if you could have it all for $5,250?
Nautel’s VS300 offers a new quality of life to older analog transmitters with new features, superior audio performance, improved reliability and often can simultaneously upgrade the IPA. For main or backup transmitter use, the VS300 cost-effectively vastly improves transmitter audio and feature performance at an extremely affordable price. If your transmitter requires up to 1200 watts of drive, the VS1 offers the identical feature set at a mere $8,000.
The VS300 as an exciter offers internal stereo generator, dual SCA generators, full dynamic RBDS encoder, Nautel’s exclusive Advanced User Interface (AUI), ShoutCast and LiveWire feeds, analog L/R, composite, AES/EBU inputs and emergency backup play-out from a USB memory stick, all for the standard price. Optional “Orban Inside” enables a complete backup processing chain at the transmitter site for a fraction of the cost of a new Optimod 5500.
The VS300 features an Input/Output interface compatible with virtually any transmitter whether tube or solid-state, and
with its 300+ watt capability may also replace many older tube or solid-state IPA sections of transmitters for enhanced
reliability and performance.
