Pushing strongly in the HD Radio transmission game, Nautel will be showing NAB Show audiences a new line of solid-state transmitters that can scale up to 80 kW.
The GV line’s full power scale ranges from 3.5 kW to 80 kW. The company says the GV line has the “highest HD power available, along with the highest digital efficiency.”
The GV boxes have an integrated digital exciter (with an option for a second one for redundancy). In addition there are IP audio I/O, LiveWire and MPX over AES/EBU. A USB port allows for local program insertion as a backup. Nautel’s Orban Inside processing is available as an option.
Other features include Nautel’s HD PowerBoost technology for increasing transmission power output while enhancing power efficiency.
Power modules are hot-swappable and the amplifier pallets are designed for field repair.
The GV line makes use of Nautel’s Advanced user Interface for local operation and remote control along with the Phone Home monitoring system. Also inside are a number of HD Radio measurement and analysis tools plus the MER measurement module.
