Marti Electronics says a CDMA version of its Digital Cellcast remote unit is available for wireless use in service areas covered by Verizon, Alltel, US Cellular, Sprint and other regional carriers.
The company says the mixer/cell phone unit for remote broadcasts increases its cellular operating footprint to the majoring of the country with this capability.
Digital Cellcast was introduced as an alternative for broadcasting from remote locations where landlines are nonexistent or where line-of-sight access to the studio isn’t possible for RF RPU operation. It transmits live remote feeds over GSM and now CDMA cell phone networks, as well as regular phone lines. Features include a four-channel mixer with separate pots for each channel, a battery pack and AC/DC converter.
The new unit features a DTMF voice recorder for transfer of audio programming over cell networks.
“A CDMA Cellcast gives our broadcasters more choices as to where they can hold remotes and still maintain top-quality broadcasts,” said a Marti spokesman. The company is part of Broadcast Electronics.
