CINCINNATI � GatesAir has announced that is has been awarded seven new patents for signal quality and over-the-air broadcast architecture. The seven inventions include:
- Method for reducing digital filter coefficient word size and apparatus therefor (Ted Staros, John Levieux)
- Predictable coding delay over communication networks (Junius Kim)
- Operation of an antenna on a second, higher frequency (Geoff Mendenhall)
- Systems and methods for presentation of digital media at a mobile platform (Jay Adrick)
- Linearization of heterogeneous power amplifier systems (Dmitri Borodulin, Keven Berndsen)
- Broadband high efficiency amplifier system incorporating dynamic modulation of load impedance (Dmitri Borodulin, George Cabrera)
- Push-pull amplification systems and methods (Dmitri Borodulin, George Cabrera)
�These innovations are focused on improving system methods and enabling greater efficiencies that affect everything from signal management and amplification, to the delivery of dynamic media content to consumers on the move,� said Rich Redmond, chief product officer, GatesAir.
�There are several areas that these patents provide new capabilities for radio customers,� continued Redmond. �This includes innovation in single frequency networks for FM using IP-based networks, which is applicable for both analog and digital FM and is incorporated in our Intraplex IP Link solutions. Advances in high efficient broadband amplifications is targeted as digital radio, which could be applied for HD radio and the DAB family of standards.�
These seven patents join the 238 other U.S. and Global patents GatesAir has received. The company also has seven other patents pending clearance.
