GatesAir has delivered a high-power Flexiva 80 kW transmitter system to Brazilian broadcaster Nova FM for coverage across Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, including coastal and inland areas.

Foccus Digital, a systems integration firm based in Sao Paulo, designed and integrated the complete RF system based on the broadcaster’s need to cover every city across the two regions. The firm says it chose Flexiva due to its “exceptional performance and low-energy consumption at very high power.” It also points out that the system’s modular design simplified the relocation of Nova FM’s RF facility from ground level to the 20th floor of its building.

“The main reasons we purchased GatesAir transmitters were the company’s legacy, combined with high performance and efficiency,” said Teodoro Fonseca, director of technology, Nova FM Brazil.

The complete RF system, as designed, integrated and commissioned by Foccus Digital, also includes a new ERI antenna system custom-built for the high-power Flexiva.
