GatesAir Expands Transmission Offering

FM and DAB products will be in spotlight at IBC

GatesAir will use the IBC2023 convention to highlight additions to its FM and DAB product lines.

“Visitors to the GatesAir stand will see an extension of the pure analog Flexiva GX family unveiled last year,” it said in a preview.

The line started with 5 kW and 10 kW versions. The company added 50 W and 1 kW models at this year’s NAB Show. “New for IBC this year, GatesAir will introduce a new 3.5 kW model to bridge the gap between its low- and medium-power Flexiva GX solutions.”

The company highlights the transmitter line for its power-to-size ratio and “exceptional” power density in a compact chassis with overall efficiency ratings up to 76 percent. 

GatesAir also exhibit its second generation of Maxiva DAB/DAB+ Radio transmission products.

It said the MultiD series was intended to reduce the costs and infrastructure of per-site multichannel DAB broadcasting. “The latest MultiD system design serves four independent DAB/DAB+ channels within a single 1RU chassis, instead of requiring a separate transmitter for each channel plus an external combiner and auxiliary hardware. 

The new system also makes it possible to broadcast four independent DAB radio services across different channel frequencies. 

“Power output per channel can also now be built to each customer’s specifications, allowing broadcasters to establish unique power levels for each service.”

It said MultiD systems are now configurable to serve virtually any combination of power levels for up to four DAB services. 

“The ability to divide system capacity is also useful for MultiD systems that share different tenants, a common occurrence in road tunnels where broadcasters can effectively consolidate resources to ensure consistent coverage of their most important broadcasts.”

The company also will announce two new Intraplex audio over IP solutions soon.

IBC Stand: 8.C82.
