Nautel Celebrates VX Series Success and Enhancements

Popular low-to-medium power FM line nears 1000 deployments in past year; will soon offer internal audio playout functionality.

Hackett’s Cove, Nova Scotia; NAB Booth W3042 –Nautel’s VX FM transmitter series, offering power levels ranging from 150 W to 6 kW, has received “exceptional” positive response from customers, with shipments approaching 1000 units since its launch last year.

Nautel has also announced plans to incorporate audio player and playlist functionality into the VX Series. With the audio player functionality, users will be able to upload content locally or remotely via an IP connection to make a playlist; no USB, addition cards, or site visits are necessary. The built-in audio player can use the file playlist as an audio source and is often used as an audio loss backup. This capability is slated for availability later this year.

“We are appreciative of the major endorsements of the VX Series by customers around the world including some large N+1 deployments,” said John Whyte, Nautel Head of Marketing and Product Strategy. “While there are many offerings in this product category, many customers are showing a preference for Nautel’s North American build quality, our extensive support, and the confidence of knowing that our financially conservative business approach ensures that they’ll have access to parts and support for years to come.” Whyte says the addition of the audio player, an innovation that Nautel first brought to its transmitters over a decade ago, “has proven to be a very popular capability for our customers and is an example of how Nautel brings continuing enhancements to its products.”
