Radio World this month profiles the recipients of our 2010 "Cool Stuff" Award.
Nautel is big on the "ecosystem" concept, integrating other popular technologies into its products to build a comprehensive "environment" for its transmitters.
The new VS Series, a low-cost line, is an example; it offers IP audio I/O, Livewire support, Orban Inside option, an integrated digital exciter and USB playout engine for local playlists. It also supports streaming services such as SHOUTcast and RTP; and VS Series transmitters may be upgraded to HD Radio or DRM+ operation.
VS Series transmitters are compact, as small as 2 RU, and offer power levels from 300 Watts to 2.5 kW. Nautel's Advanced User Interface (AUI) is provided.
Nautel recommends the VS300 as a replacement for aging analog exciters.
Price: Starting at $5,000
