A new 4 kW transmitter from Harris Corp., designed to improve T-DMB reception, is being introduced at the 2008 NAB Show.

The DMB 670-4000 supports international regions that use the T-DMB standard to transmit mobile TV and digital radio from the same transmitter.

The DMB 670 range comprises highly compact DAB transmitters able to deliver multiplexed DAB and T-DMB mobile TV channels to mobile, handheld consumer devices. The higher-powered DMB 670-4000 retains the same footprint and energy-efficient, air-cooled design of its 2 kW predecessor.

According to Tim Thorsteinson, president of Harris Broadcast Communications, "The DMB 670-4000 transmitter addresses unprecedented power levels for DAB/DMB broadcasting in a market-leading, energy-efficient package to provide a more robust transmission platform that better serves consumers on the move."

DMB 670 transmitters are available in power levels from 500 W to 8 kW.

During the 2008 NAB Show, Factum Electronics will provide head-end compression and multiplexing equipment to enable T-DMB demonstrations by Harris.
